Commission to lay charges against Pastor's alleged 'pearly gates' snaps

Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, also known as Pastor Mboro, has stunned the public yet again, this time for allegedly selling pictures he took from heaven on Easter Sunday - for R5 000.

The Commission for Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL) now plans to reinstate criminal charges against the controversial pastor, after it had suspended a previous case against him.

In the past, Mboro had failed to provide financial statements for the auditing of his church, Incredible Happenings Ministries.

CRL Chair Thoko Mkhwanazi- Xaluva says the pastor is bringing Christianity into disrepute and that the commission has summoned him to explain the alleged 'heaven selfies'.

If you present yourself as a prophet and say you've seen Jesus' wife, who's a hot Xhosa woman - that is serious blasphemy. We need to protect the religion.

Thoko Mkhwanazi- Xaluva, CRL Chair person

Listen to the full conversation from The Midday Report with Stephen Grootes:

Meanwhile Mboro has denied the allegations and accused the CRL Chair of making false claims against him.

You cannot take pictures or cellphones in heaven. You don't go up and down - it is a sacred place.

Pastor Mboro

The pastor has accused Mkhwanazi- Xaluva of fabricating a Facebook page to destroy his reputation and has promised to take legal action.
