The Incredible Happenings Ministries has debunked reports that Prophet Mboro was whisked away from Johannesburg during an Easter service to heaven where he took pictures which were on sale for R5 000.
Following the claims that the Incredible Happenings Ministries’ Prophet went to heaven and took selfies with angels which were reportedly available for R5 000 pledge, the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL Rights Commission) expressed the intent to reinstate criminal charges against Prophet Mboro.
Commenting, Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva, the Chairperson of the commission said the visit to heaven for snapshots is another fundraising gimmick as far as CRL is concerned.
“We are monitoring the heaven selfies – this is extortion and commercialization of religion… Millions of people take religion very serious and for him to say he met Jesus’s beautiful Xhosa wife is an insult to the religion. We are also going to issue him with a subpoena for the selfies,” she stated.
Reacting, the Incredible Happenings Ministries’ Prophet said he ‘watched the news and heard a woman who was behaving like a nuts girl (talking about him). I want to say I’m a Christian and those (comments) are an insult to my calling and the entire Christianity.
She is hunting Mboro and she is not going to win. I’m not going to close down and I’m not going to jail. She has insulted me and she has damaged my name and she’s going to pay me,” the Prophet told Sowetan Live.
He wondered if the commission was meant to destroy churches or protect religion. “What was its purpose?” He inquired, and indicated that commission is bent on portraying him as an anti-Christ.
With that, Prophet Mboro explained that he never went to heaven nor took selfies with angels. According to what the Prophet said, the Facebook account wasn’t his.
He’ll thus be laying charges against those that set up the account to spread the ‘trip to heaven story’. “I’m going to open a case against people who opened the Facebook page. I will also be suing Xaluva,” he declared.
He also rubbished the story about how he met Jesus’s beautiful Xhosa wife in heaven saying – “He cannot have a wife. There are no humans there, there are spirits. Heaven is not that cheap, you cannot sell it for R5000.”
