Controversial prophets are at each other’s throats again. This time, Prophet Mboro Motsoeneng is set to sue Prophet Shepherd Bushiri for defamation.
According to a statement shared by TV and radio personality Kuli Roberts, Mboro will be taking legal action against Bushiri after the Malawian prophet allegedly posted on his social media that Mboro was accused of s.e.xual misconduct. However, according to the statement, this was a reporting error from eNCA that was later rectified.
The news channel was covering the story of Apostle BB Dingiso, who was arrested for several charges including s.e.xual misconduct and murders. eNCA had a headline error that read “Mboro accused of sexual misconduct instead of “Dingiso accused of sexual misconduct,” the statement explains.
During this time, the couple had full support from the members of their church. The church’s spokesperson Terrence Baloyi said to the SABC, “The intention is clearly not to seek justice. The intention is clearly not to make sure that justice prevails at the end of the day. We can assure you the prophet and prophetess are innocent creatures of God; whatever they are charged with are charges that are baseless and cannot stand any test of any court proceedings. I can assure you, we feel this is nothing but a personal vendetta.
A few days after the Pretoria Central Magistrate’s Court granted them bail, Bushiri released a statement revealing that they have fled to their home country Malawi temporarily because of safety and security concerns.
“There have been clear and evident attempts to have myself, my wife, and my family killed and despite our several attempts to report to authorities, there has never been State protection. Our coming to Malawi, hence, is a tactical withdrawal from the Republic of South Africa solely meant to preserve our lives.” Read More: Bushiri Could Have Been Aided By South African Government
