JOHANNESBURG - Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, popularly known as “Prophet Mboro”, has once again appeared before the Commission for the Protection of Cultural and Religious Rights.

This is not the first time the pastor has been investigated for the alleged commercialisation of religion and the abuse of beliefs. And he's still refusing to disclose the church's financial records.

While prophet Mboro remains defiant, other church leaders have welcomed the commission's probe.

“I think it’s important for the encouragement of covering bodies that churches should belong to a covering body that they will be responsible to and accountable to,” said Bishop Mosa Sono, of the Grace Bible Church.

Meanwhile, Prophet Mboro, who is accused of feeding snakes and rats to his congregants, is still nowhere to be found.

The commission is expected to sit again on Friday and its findings will be released next year.
