The controversial pastor is demanding an apology from the religious commission. 


Mboro says claims that he went to heaven and took a selfie with God are false. 


But commission chairperson Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva says: "We have no intention of apologising to Mr Mboro."


She says Mboro had been summoned to explain the photos which had gone viral on social media as well as claims that these photos were being sold for profit. 

Self-proclaimed prophet Paseka "Mboro" Motsoeneng has given Mkhwanazi-Xaluva until Thursday to apologise.


He insists the chairperson has damaged his reputation and should apologise in person, or provide evidence for the claims.


"If she doesn't bring it, she must tell who is paying her, who is sending her, who is she working for to harm my reputation," Mboro asks.

Mboro held a press briefing this morning to give Mkhwanazi-Xaluva a final chance to apologise to "the charismatic churches, the Christian community, incredible happenings church and Prophet Mboro".


Last month, the commission released its long-awaited report into the commercialisation of religion. 


Mboro says religious leaders cannot be regulated.


The report revealed poor governance structures and cult-like practices at some churches in the religious sector. 


Parliament now needs to pass the commission's recommendations so the process of regulating the sector can begin.
