Panel head wants protection order against Pastor Mboro

There have been dramatic warnings from the Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities chair Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva over concerns of what’s likely to happen to her following a dispute with Pastor Paseka Mboro Motsoeneng.

She is applying for a protection order because she believes if left unchecked, Mboro will physically harm her or worse, kill her.

Mkhwanazi-Xaluva is also worried he might incite his congregation to harm her.

I think my fears are not unfounded. The first deadline he gave me was on 2 August. I was supposed to clean his church and kneel and beg and cry for forgiveness and polish his shoes.

She says after failing to meet the deadline, Mboro arrived at her office with eight cars that had armed bodyguards inside.

“I don’t think it’s an idle threat… I think it’s very serious”

It started with our investigation into the commercialisation of religion and the abuse of beliefs, she added.

Xolani Gwala then spoke to Pastor Mboro about Mkhwanazi-Xaluva's claims.
