On Tuesday, the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL Rights Commission) laid criminal charges against Motsoeneng.
It said he had failed to comply with a summons to hand over audited financial statements during their investigation into him and his church, the Incredible Happenings Ministries, for commercialisation of religion.
'Hated by media'
Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, also known as Prophet Mboro, The CRL reportedly said that reports circulating on social media about pictures of him in heaven were blasphemous and brought Christianity into disrepute.
CRL Rights Commission chairperson, Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva, said when the church's money was deposited into a personal account, the public had a right to know what happened to those funds.
“He is creating the image that he has something to hide... why doesn’t he want to reveal the information that is required of him? He said his church is not a registered non-profit organisation,” Mkhwanazi-Xaluva said.
Prophet Mboro suing Mkhwanazi-Xaluva
Motsoeneng, however, said he was suing Mkhwanazi-Xaluva because she did not refer to the claim of his trip to heaven as an allegation.
“She must account for all this, the commission is supposed to protect me,” Motsoeneng said.
“I’m hated by the media but people love me in South Africa. Nothing will ever change their hearts,” Motsoeneng said.
He said the CRL Rights Commission would never win the case against him.
