Sunday World - - News - NG­WAKO MALATJI Gen­er­a­tions: The Legacy

A BAD luck-stricken telly ac­tress and a bevy of strug­gling artists are seek­ing di­vine in­ter­ven­tion to turn their for­tunes around.

ac­tress Manaka Ranaka, Lucy in the soapie, and faded kwaito stars Mshoza, Brickz, Ma­paputsi and Bak­stina have turned to the In­cred­i­ble Hap­pen­ings Church, led by Prophet Paseka Mboro Mot­soe­neng, for de­liv­er­ance.

Sun­day World learnt the well-known celebri­ties con­gre­gated at the Top Cherry restau­rant in Zola, Soweto, Joburg, on Tues­day, where Mboro prayed for them.

Ranaka, who fa­tally ran over a school girl ear­lier this year, con­firmed she at­tended Mboro s prayer ses­sion, but de­nied she was a mem­ber of his church.

Why are you even calling me about this is­sue? Is it be­cause it s Mboro?” a fu­ri­ous Ranaka asked.

If it was pas­tor Ray McCauley of Rhema Bi­ble Church, would you have called? Please re­spect us, man.”

Asked whether she would now start at­tend­ing In­cred­i­ble Hap­pen­ing ser­vices on Sun­days, she re­torted: If I have time, I m a busy per­son. For your in­for­ma­tion, I m Catholic.

Mshoza con­firmed she had joined Mboro s church.

When you don t have God on your side, things don t go ac­cord­ing to plan,” Mshoza said.

I have gone through a lot, like my failed marriage, and my ca­reer is strug­gling. So, I want God to play a role in my life.” Mshoza ad­mit­ted to at­tend­ing the prayer ses­sion in Zola on Tues­day, say­ing she had been pray­ing with the pop­u­lar man of the cloth ev­ery day since. Ma­paputsi, dumped by his wife af­ter his mu­sic ca­reer took a nose dive, con­firmed at­tend­ing the prayer ses­sion. In fact, I m the one who sug­gested to kwaito artists that it was high time we in­vited God into our lives. I or­gan­ised them and in­vited Prophet Mboro to pray for us. The fes­tive sea­son is around the corner, so we want pro­tec­tion from God,” Ma­paputsi said. But most im­por­tantly, the death of Man­doza prompted us to ask for prayers from Mboro. I d like to thank him for mak­ing time to pray with us.” Brickz, on trial for al­legedly rap­ing his cousin, spewed bile when con­tacted. What do you mean I went there for di­vine in­ter­ven­tion? a fu­ri­ous Brickz asked. It s none of your f#%king busi­ness.” At­tempts to reach Bak­stina drew a blank. Mboro con­firmed at­tend­ing the prayer ses­sion in Soweto, say­ing the artists would start at­tend­ing his church ser­vices on Sun­days. I prayed for the artists, Mboro said. As men of God, we are al­ways avail­able to help peo­ple re­ceive the word of God.”
