JOHANNESBURG – Prophet Paseka Motsoeneng pulled the plug on his gospel show that was due to air on ANN7 on Sunday, claiming that the controversial Gupta family still had links with the channel.
Though Motsoeneng, better known as Prophet Mboro, would not give clear details about how the Guptas were still linked to ANN7, he said he had discovered that they were still involved in some way.
“It was supposed to have started yesterday (Sunday) between 8pm and 9pm. There were issues that I was not happy with. I discovered that the Guptas were still in ANN7.
“I felt there were a number of things that needed to be corrected, also in the running of the station. I don’t want to be part of a disorder and something that has no legitimacy, integrity, that will affect my reputation,” said Mboro.
The station and the new Age newspaper was acquired by former government spokesperson Mzwanele Manyi from the Gupta family in August last year.
On Monday, the news channel management issued a statement confirming that it had an agreement with Mboro for a gospel show.
In the statement, it said the issues that Mboro had raised had been ironed out and that show would be aired soon. The channel also said there had been a communication breakdown with the pastor, which had since been resolved.
