Johannesburg – Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng, also known as Prophet Mboro, has rejected claims that he went to heaven on Easter Sunday and had pictures taken with Jesus Christ.
Motsoeneng said because he had not yet died, there was no reason for him to have visited heaven.
“If I had pictures of heaven, my whole family and church would have seen it. I would never insult Jesus like that,” he said on Tuesday.
Pictures alleging to be of Motsoeneng in heaven reportedly appeared on a Facebook page created under his name. Someone claiming to be his spokesperson also allegedly said the pictures were for sale.
Motsoeneng has since reportedly said he was unaware of the person purporting to be his spokesperson.
On Tuesday, the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL Rights Commission) laid criminal charges against Motsoeneng.
It said he had failed to comply with a summons to hand over audited financial statements during their investigation into him and his church, the Incredible Happenings Ministries, for commercialisation of religion.

The multi-platinum selling artist was launching her new album ‘Born free’ in partnership with the brand Johnnie Walker.

Lira continues to shine and now relishes the partnership with Johnnie Walker to push South Africans to consider where joy might take them should they embrace a different frame of mind.

TIP-ex is a dynamic and powerful three-hander which stars Hannie with Melissa Johannisen and Maxine Caesar. The central theme for the play focuses on gender issues, and in particular, corrective rape – still prevalent in some South African communities today. The narrative is about a woman, Katie (played by Hannie), who takes the audience back to her teenage years when she first started to realise that she was attracted to persons of the same sex. When she mentions this to her conservative family for the first time, outrage breaks out and everything changes. As still often happens today, she is sent to confirmation classes to ‘fix’ the problem.
12 April 2015 – Thursday 26 May 2016 heralds the 14th anniversary of the Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Programme. This movement and its potential outcomes continue to grow in stature and strength and this year’s Miss South Africa, Ntandoyenkosi Kunene has been appointed the campaign’s official ambassador.
Many girl children are born into environments where their family members don’t work in corporates, are neither in charge of their own businesses nor work in professions such as medicine or law. This makes it difficult for them to gain work experience or receive positive advice about their future which, in the long run, will have an impact on their confidence, self-belief and ambitions.

South African National Parks (SANParks) announces that it will be relocating the lion which escaped from Karoo National Park at the end of March to the Addo Elephant National Park (AENP).
The lion will be moved into a boma within an existing 200ha enclosure in the Kuzuko contractual section of the AENP for him to become bonded with the two (2) young females who are currently in the enclosure. The two young females were the cubs that were rescued in Addo Main Camp after their mother was killed by a snake early last year. They survived for about 2 months on their own and, with the help of the public, rangers were able to rescue them. The CEO of SANParks, Fundisile Mketeni said, “This lion, at three years of age, is still young enough to bond with the two females and ultimately establish himself as the resident pride male”. This option forms part of the Frontier Cluster’s Carnivore Management Plan. Continue reading
