LAST week, Prophet Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng accused Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva of dragging his name through the mud.

Mkhwanazi-Xaluva is the chairwoman of the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Religious Communities.

He said she called him a fake prophet and demanded she apologise in public or face the consequences. 

Mkhwanazi-Xaluva didn’t apologise. 

So Mboro filed an urgent court application to interdict the commission. 

Yesterday, his legal team again met with the commission’s legal team at the same court and both teams came out celebrating.

Mboro’s legal team called him to come and attend the court proceeding but he was late. By the time the pastor arrived, the commission’s team had already left. 

His legal team was outside the court’s entrance waiting for him.

“You won’t be arrested, man of God,” they told him.

“Your case has been resolved.”

The prophet couldn’t hold back his joy! 

His legal team, advocates Jerry Koma and Moses Mkhabela, said: “The findings were that the case to arrest Mboro was old as it was opened in 2015.

“The case has been mooted and in an affidavit Mkhwanazi-Xaluva denied speaking ill of Mboro.”

A happy Mboro said: “She denied everything. This shows that the commission had no case against me, and that it was just a vendetta.”

But Mkhwanazi-Xaluva’s commission denied this.

Commission spokesman Mpiyakhe Mkholo said: “Mboro is not off the hook. The arrest is still pending.”
