THE council and the lawyers waited for two hours for Pastor Mboro to arrive.
When he finally arrived, he was accompanied by about 40 people.
But he spent only a few ­minutes in the building before walking out.
He was expected to appear before the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities.
Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva, chairwoman of the commission, said Mboro would be charged for excusing himself without permission.
She said his lawyer might also be charged.
“The law is going to take its course. We are also going to complain to the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa for the inciting statements that Mboro has been making,” she said.
Members of the IFP, NFP, ANC, PAC, EFF, DA, hostel izinduna, sangomas and others were ready to die for him as they sang songs that insulted the chairwoman of the commission.
Mboro, whose real name is Paseka Motsoeneng, told his followers outside the gates at Braampark in Braamfontein, Joburg that the commission was wasting his time as he was supposed to be somewhere helping poor people.
“This is not a court. She is not a magistrate and she is not a judge. I want President Jacob Zuma to intervene,” he said.
Mboro said he will be pursuing the matter through the courts.
He said the people were supporting him because of his good work in the community. He denied that he had mobilised the people against the commission.
After walking out, he told his followers: “The chairwoman of the commission is usually a brave person, but today she was shaking with fear because of you, my followers.”
