A warrior priest fought over a gogo’s dead body fists, bricks, bullets and knobkieries flew.
It happened last Sunday after local tough guys allegedly hired by the local undertaker staged a raid on the Incredible Happenings church in Katlehong.
Their target was Prophet Paseka “Mbhoro” Motsoeneng. Last week the celebrity prophet said that before his church member Ma Ngwenya died, she asked to be buried by him as she didn’t want to turn into a restless spirit.
The prophet said: “Church ministers and family members went to the mortuary to wash the corpse.
“They prayed and then dressed it,” he said.
But someone dressed the body in different clothes! And the prime suspect, according to Mbhoro, was Jabu Dladla of Zamokuhle Funeral Directors.
On Friday, the undertaker should have brought the body to the family house in Dukathole, where Mbhoro was waiting.
“I phoned to find out why there was a delay. I went there with church members who took videos. A guy who works at the mortuary said it was a mistake to tamper with the body.
“I prayed in the street, then I left,” said the prophet.
But last Sunday another drama took place at Mbhoro’s church – allegedly because Dladla was angered by the videos taken at the mortuary.
Around 50 kombis came, playing loud music. These invaders allegedly opened fire and broke down the church gate.
Mbhoro said: “Congregation members and my bodyguards fired into the air. I told them: ‘Don’t shoot to kill!’
“The hooligans ran away, shouting that I was a mafia,” he said.
He added that some of the taxi drivers were moered and had to be removed by ambulance. Mbhoro alleged: “Some confessed they were sent by Dladla.”
Last week, Dladla refused to comment. Mbhoro has opened a case of crimen injuria. Germiston police confirmed this.
