Pastor Mboro and Prophet Bushiri’s complicated history has seen them grow from warring enemies, to what seems to be “close friends in faith.” We take a look at some of their key exchanges over the past few years. 

There are very few religious leaders who can draw headlines quite as sensationally as Paseka ‘Mboro’ Motsoeneng and Shepherd Bushiri. The two famous men of God have hogged the tabloids in recent years for a variety of reasons. 

Pastor Mboro has been in and out of the news for everything from falsely attributed quotes about going to heaven to feuds with other famous pastors. Self-proclaimed prophet, Shepherd Bushiri has also dominated recent news reports following his high profile arrest in October which led to him fleeing the country for Malawi last week.

One final phone call before fleeing?

The most recent story came in the past week when it was alleged that Shepherd Bushiri had phoned his fellow man of God during his darkest hour. Pastor Mboro has since denied this, claiming that he and Bushiri were not close enough for that to have happened.
