- Prophet Mboro laid a complaint against ABSA over alleged unauthorised debit orders
- Amounts debited from his account reportedly total over R1million
- Joburg's public prosecutor has subpoenaed ABSA to release records of the alleged beneficiaries
Prophet Paseka "Mboro" Motsoeneng is taking on banking giant ABSA over alleged unlawful debit orders from his account.
According to Sowetan Live, the leader of the Incredible Happenings Ministry laid a complaint against the bank at the office of the senior public prosecutor in Johannesburg.
The office has in turn subpoenaed ABSA to release records of the alleged beneficiaries of the debit orders, Briefly.co.za gathered.
Sowetan Live quoted a letter from senior public prosecutor Kenny Ramavhoya, which partly reads:
The case is against ABSA and relates to several unlawful debits off Mr Motsoeneng's account totalling over a million rand.
Phindi Mjonondwane, a spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), confirmed the subpoena.
Songezo Zibi, ABSA's spokesperson, said the bank is prepared to comply with all legal requirements relating to the investigation.
However, Prophet Mboro claimed that the bank had failed to cooperate with the police:
I would have not opened a case against this bank, but I had no option after several meetings that I held with senior managers yielded no fruits.
