Remember that Christian pastor from The Incredible Happenings Ministry in South Africa? The one who used a “demon banishing” service as an excuse to molest and abuse young women?
You’ll be happy to know Paseka Motsoeneng (a.k.a. “Mboro” or “Mbhoro”) was recently arrested, albeit not for the obvious reasons:
Mbhoro spent a night in a freezing Bedfordview police holding cell on the eve of Freedom Day this week after he was arrested with his bodyguards, who were all carrying unlicensed firearms.
He was released on bail on Wednesday morning. Following his release, Mbhoro spoke on Radio 2000 and lied.
He claimed that he is being “persecuted” by unidentified people and claimed he was “attacked” the previous night.
Mbhoro was probably not aware when he told this lie that Sunday World already knew that he’d spent a night in detention.
Sources from a security agency that has been probing Mbhoro say the self-styled prophet’s bodyguards are a matter of great concern.
“How did he get to have more than five bodyguards? Owning at least five bodyguards is akin to owning a private army.
“Procedurally, a person with at least five bodyguards should first seek permission from the security services,” he says.
The whole story seems shady and Motsoeneng is already back out on the streets. But at least people are onto him. People are even catching on to his day job — conning desperate, gullible people out of their money… and molesting women when he can:
The agents also say they discovered during their investigations that Mbhoro allegedly paid a school teacher to fake his illness on camera.
Surprise, surprise. Faith healing doesn’t work. If you need medical help, go see a doctor.
