JOHANNESBURG - Controversial prophet Paseka Motsoeneng also known as Pastor Mboro has accused Cultural and Religious watchdog CRL Commission chair Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva of perjury and says he will sue her.

Motsoeneng is among several leaders of charismatic churches who are being investigated by the commission after claims that they are using religion to infringe on the rights of their congregants.

He's apparently given the commission and its chair seven days to resign and disband.

Motsoeneng, who leads the Incredible Happenings Ministries in Katlehong on the East Rand has repeatedly refused to give the commission access to financial statements while it investigates whether his religion was commercialised.

Several pastors have made headlines in recent months claiming to heal congregants using controversial methods, such as spraying churchgoers with insecticides.
