Despite Mboro’s intentions – and claiming to have called and messaged in advance – Bushiri was nowhere to be seen at his church.
Mboro told the media that he and Bushiri had made peace and visited each other in their homes. “I don’t know him as a man who is fighting me. I’m just a brother asking to make peace publicly, like we did privately,” he said.
“That [allegations] tarnished my reputation internationally. The Lukau resurrection challenge resurrected the bad vibes that Major One and I had. That is why I came to say, ‘My brother, what we buried has been resurrected,'” he said.
In 2016, Mboro made headlines after Facebook posts of him “going to heaven” went viral.
A year later, the controversial pastor made headlines again when details of his alleged visit to hell trended. “When I got to hell, there was a queue of millions of people waiting to be braaied by Satan. I even saw some prominent South African politicians,” the post apparently read.
Mboro claimed to have later found out that it was Bushiri’s former employee who had created fake accounts to make those posts, for which he had apologised.
“I wanted us to speak again publicly and tell people that we spoke and put the matter to rest. I came here to say, ‘Give me a decree of clearance so I can take it everywhere,’ – because after this I am going to complain against the CRL Rights Commission at the Human Rights Commission. He’s my witness at the moment,” said Mboro.
