Pastor Mboro: CRL chair lacks credibility, attacking charismatic faith leaders

Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, also known as Pastor Mboro, has hit back at the Commission for Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL).

This comes after the CRL Rights Commission released a report calling for strict laws to curb the commercialisation of religion and lack of accountability in the religious sector.

Pastor Mboro says CRL Rights Commission chairwoman Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva lacks credibility and has brought the entire commission into disrepute.

This woman has no credibility. She is targeting certain people and she is protecting I don't know who.

Mboro claims that Mkhwanazi-Xaluva has been behind a smear campaign which has tarnished his reputation and affected the faith and rights of church-goers.

He has questioned Mkhwanazi-Xaluva's motive and says the religious watchdog is "attacking" charismatic faith leaders after allegations surfaced that he sold pictures that allegedly took from heaven.

The thing of the spirit cannot be regulated, we as Christians need to regulate ourselves.

Mboro says that while it is wrong to 'sell the gospel', churches need offerings to keep their ministries going.

People cannot be forced to pay.

Meanwhile, the CRL says there is evidence of the commercialisation of religion and lack of regulation and non-compliance of existing laws, reports EWN's Thando Kubheka.

The CRL has found there are many unregistered religious leaders in the country who are using cult-like methods to lure congregants and has called on stricter regulation.

The report by the CRL Commission and its recommendations have been handed over to Parliament.

Parliament will review the report and determine if the recommendations made in it will be implemented.
