Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva fears for her life as prophet Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng’s deadline for an apology has passed.
The chairwoman for the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities has asked for protection from the police and has opened a case against the pastor.
Speaking at a briefing at the commission’s office in Braamfontein, Joburg yesterday, Mkhwanazi-Xaluva said Mboro’s deadline given to her to apologise had expired nine days ago.
He is the leader of Incredible Happenings Ministries.
“He has made many allegations against me in person,” Mkhwanazi-Xaluva said. “He has not said what he is basing these serious allegations on. I deny any corruption and dare him to produce proof.”
Following alleged threats, Mkhwanazi-Xaluva said she will apply for a protection order.
“I believe if left unchecked, he will physically harm me or worse still, kill me, or incite his congregants to a stage where they will harm me.” It is her intention to ensure her complaint against Mboro is given the urgent attention it deserves as she is afraid of doing her work.
Mboro said he is shocked to hear Mkhwanazi-Xaluva fears for her life.
He said he took the matter to court and she responded with an affidavit, distancing herself from things that have been reported in the media about him.
“This includes the statement she made that I will be arrested before our matter goes to court,” he said. “Her mission of defaming or trying to destroy me won’t work.”
He said he never ordered anyone to attack or threaten her. “She has directly or indirectly continued to make herself an enemy of the church. All I did was to ask all Christians to unite and pray against this hardened hatred of the church.”
Mboro said it’s sad that Mkhwanazi-Xaluva wants to apply for a protection order against him.
