- A 60-year-old gogo is accusing a bishop of stealing the home she built herself with the money she made as a domestic worker
- According to Onica Smith she moved out of her house 7-years-ago because of health issues
- Smith said she let a bishop stay in her house, but now she allegedly refuses to move out
In 2011, Onica Smith had some issues with her health, so she moved out of her Slovo Park home to live with her son until she was better.
The Daily Sun reported she then helped out struggling bishop Gloria Mohlatlole by letting her stay in her three-bedroom home while she recovered at her son’s house in Protea Glen, Soweto.
However, now Mohlatlole allegedly refuses to move out of Smith’s house and every time she brings it up, the bishop would hurl insults at her.
To make matters worse, Briefly.co.za learned the bishop allegedly told local housing officials in 2016 that the home belonged to her while they were doing a check on ownership.
“But I found out later she told them she was the owner. When I confronted her, she became aggressive,” said Onica.
Smith said she erected a shack on the stand in 1995, and she then used her domestic worker salary to build a three-bedroom home over the years.
Now, she is struggling to correct the ownership paper work as a result of Mohlatlole’s alleged lies. However, according to the Bishop, Smith’s claims are all false and she kindly asked her to just give her a bit more time to move out.
According to the bishop, she was busy with the process of getting her own stand and she does not intend on stealing Smith’s home.
As for Smith’s claims that Mohlatlole treats her ill, the bishop said he had never once fought with the 60-year-old.
