Pastor Mboro threatens church shutdown if followers don't help with lawsuit
Pastor Mboro has threatened to shut down his church if his followers don’t help him with legal bills to sue the CRL Rights Commission.
JOHANNESBURG - Controversial Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, who is also known as Pastor Mboro, has threatened to shut down his church if his followers don’t help him with legal bills to sue the CRL Rights Commission.
The commission released its report into the commercialisation of religion and abuse of people’s belief systems this week, which recommended that all religious leaders be registered or face prosecution.
It has found that a number of religious practitioners are unregistered, use cult like practices and flout banking rules.
However, Mboro says that religious leaders cannot be regulated by people who don’t understand their mandate from God.
He has threatened to stop helping those in need if his supporters don’t assist him with the lawsuit.
“I’ve given my people nine weeks starting from 16 July. I’ll be focusing on people who’ll help me, who care about me and will assist me with this legal battle as I give them service, who need my service. They must register and walk with me.”
