He is widely-known as a “man of god” and has went on claiming
to perform miracles and healing people but on Monday evening the prophet who is
named after a male organ revealed his side which left masses shocked, irritated
and baying for his blood.
Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng arrived with his entourage at
Thetha FM’s premises at Isikhumbuzo Secondary School in Orange Farm, extension
2 for his usual radio show but found doors locked and demanded explanation. Up-on not getting answers he was infuriated and
retaliated by producing a pistol, blocked the entrance with his car and declared
“war” to staff members as he hurled insults. Acting on Motsoeneng’s
instructions his bodyguards manhandled a presenter and pointed firearms at two
reporters from a national newspaper threatening to confiscate their equipment.
In a fit of rage the presenters stormed into the studio and
interrupted normal programming by going on-air and informed the listeners about
the mayhem; this angered them and within a blink of an eye community members
graced the scene to witness the drama.
Motsoeneng is said to be bringing a lot of revenue to the
station through his religious shows and as such has been treating presenters
like dirt claiming to be the one who pays their salary and this didn’t go down
well with the staff and last week was the last straw as the station’s breakfast
show’ crew urged the management to attend to the matter; this come after the
prophet harassed a sports presenter telling him that “he was playing sh@#t music
during his time slot”.
“Judging by how things transpired on the day we have a
reason to believe that one of our colleagues (name known to this blogger)
tipped the prophet about our intention, because even his back-up didn’t take
long to arrive” said a presenter.
Motsoeneng’s fleets of cars were damaged as community members
punched the tyres and demanded Mboro be handed to them for a “respect lesson”
they were willing to give to him for free however together with his bodyguards were
rescued as they fled the scene in a police car.
In a meeting that convened between the station’s management,
prophet and presenters where solution was to be sought it was agreed that the
prophet should be released and never set his foot ever again at the station.
On arrival at the Orange Farm Police Station, Motsoeneng’s
alias who was the presenter at the station was already there and took it upon him
to address the concerned community members, it was through his conversation on
the phone with Motsoeneng and negative comment about his (former) colleagues
which saw community members taking matters into their hands but the police soon
took control of the situation.
Meanwhile the cops disarmed Motsoeneng and his bodyguards
and a case of malicious damage to property and pointing of firearms was laid.
