Testimonies continue to come in. Some explain how they survived accidents and managed to revive their businesses due to the “anointing upon Prophet Mboro”.
One of the congregants testifies that his business struggled for three months but things have turned around and he is now growing his enterprise. He also thanks Mboro for “changes” in his bedroom.
“In my bedroom‚ it’s wonderful. There is no getting tired‚” the man says. Finally at 11.26am‚ Mboro arrives in a guard of honour formed by the ushers. The congregation celebrates his arrival with whistling‚ ululation and clapping of hands.
Dressed in a light navy three-piece suit‚ Mboro calmly receives the microphone and then sings “Morena o tseba mathata a rona” which means the Lord knows our hardships.
During his sermon he moves around the pulpit. It has been set up to honour four police officers and their commander who rescued a three-year-old girl from the Blesbok River in Springs.
Two couches are placed on either side of the pulpit. A beautiful chair covered in cow skin is positioned on the right side of the altar. The officers and the mother of the child are called to the altar to sit while Mboro preaches.
In his opening remarks‚ Mboro laments how society only talks about the bad that police do and never acknowledge the good.
“Police are underpaid and even the good that they do goes to waste. Nobody sees it. This thing demoralises them and they say ‘what’s the point’‚” Mboro says.
