Prophet Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng became the latest well-known South African to join the “Not in my name” civil movement group.
The movement has reached out to various celebrities and sports stars to support the noble cause.
Leaders of the group attended Mboro’s church in Ekurhuleni on Sunday where he announced he was joining forces with the group.
One of the leaders of the movement, Siyabulela Jentile, was in attendance and said, “South African women are an endangered species in this country. We want to kill the culture of using women as a commodity.”
The Daily Sun also reported that Themba Masango, another fellow leader, said they’ve noticed an increase in the abuse of power within churches.
They reached out to various church structures within South Africa but Pastor Mboro was the first to respond to their request.
The group has provided backing for the victims of the Omotoso and Dros assault cases.
Mboro prayed for the victims and also said he looks forward to working with religious leaders from all backgrounds in support of the initiative.
He said, “It doesn’t matter if it’s a mosque or a traditional healer’s hut, we cannot allow religion and culture to be used to commit and cover up crime.”
