JOHANNESBURG - The mother of a child who died at Pastor Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng's Incredible Happenings Ministry on Sunday has laid charges of culpable homicide against paramedics from the Ekurhuleni Emergency Management Services.

She was accompanied by Motsoeneng, who has accused the paramedics of negligence.



The mother had taken her sick three-year-old daughter to the church for pastor Motsoeneng to pray for her recovery.

Motsoeneng said the child was "very" sick when she was brought to his church. He claims paramedics shouted at the mother instead of providing medical care.

"We called the ambulance, we thought they would come quicker, they didn't. Instead of entering, they refused to enter. Why do you refuse to take the child, why do you refuse to put the child in a structure?" he said while briefing the media outside the Alberton police station in southern Johannesburg.



The paramedics have refuted Motsoeneng's claims and said the child was already dead when they arrived at the church.
