- Prophet Mboro's followers marched to Afro Worldview
- They demanded that Prophet Mboro's church service be reinstated on the TV station
- Afro Worldview's owner said airing the service was against ICASA's regulations
Followers of Prophet Paseka "Mboro" Motsoeneng, the leader of Incredible Happenings Ministry, protested outside Afro Worldview's offices in Midrand yesterday.
They expressed dissatisfaction that Prophet Mboro's church programme was not aired on the 24-hour news channel on Sunday, Briefly.co.za learned.
About 100 protesters, who included youths from the Congress of South African Students (COSAS), demanded that the programme be reinstated.
Speaking to eNCA, COSAS' Ekurhuleni Hostels residence secretary, Zwane, said:
We are extremely angry and outraged at the fact that the Incredible Happenings show was not aired last Sunday as promised. We demand answers as to why there was no show.
They handed a memorandum to Afro Worldview's owner, Mzwanele Manyi. Afro Worldview was previously known as ANN7 before Manyi acquired full ownership from the Guptas.
Manyi said airing the programme would be against Afro Worldview's editorial policy and Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) regulations.
We tried to make the show work but it was impossible for it to continue because if we had continued with it, [it] would have meant that MultiChoice must remove us from the platform with immediate effect.
Prophet Mboro is known for his controversial and outlandish claims. Briefly.co.za wrote about his rollercoaster 2017 in this article.
It looks like he started 2018 on a spectacular note again after he reportedly posted a picture suggesting he had gone to heaven.
