JOHANNESBURG – Pastor Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng could be facing time behind bars after police revealed on Friday he was being evicted from his Incredible Happenings Ministries church building in Katlehong for illegal occupancy.
Mboro was not not present during the evictions but his wife was.
According to the police an eviction operation was carried out on Friday morning at the building, with the Red Ants security team doing most of the heavy lifting.
They began moving the contents of the church, including tables and chairs, from the municipally-owned building early in the morning.
Gauteng police spokesperson Kay Makhubela said more information will be available later.
“An eviction order was put forward on the grounds that the pastor has been illegally occupying the building.”
In recent weeks, the controversial pastor claimed he went to “heaven” and had pictures to prove it.
The Commission for Religious Rights said it wants him to answer questions about the claims.
The self-proclaimed prophet hit back at the commission by filing for defamation.
Mboro allegedly sold photos of his trip to “heaven” for R5,000.
Police have warned that Mboro and his congregation will be violating a court order if they return to the building.
