(a) a se­ri­ous vi­o­la­tion of the

Con­sti­tu­tion or the law;

(b) se­ri­ous mis­con­duct; or

(c)

(2) in­abil­ity to per­form the func­tions of of­fice.

Any­one who has been re­moved from the of­fice of pres­i­dent in terms of sub­sec­tion (1)(a) or (b) may not re­ceive any ben­e­fits of that of­fice, and may not serve in any pub­lic of­fice. THE con­tro­ver­sial pas­tor, Paseka (Mboro) Mot­soe­neng’s case of com­mon as­sault against an Ekurhu­leni Emer­gency Ser­vice fe­male para­medic will only be heard next month.

This fol­lows an al­leged al­ter­ca­tion at his In­cred­i­ble Hap­pen­ings church in Katle­hong on Sun­day, where Mboro al­legedly as­saulted the driver of an am­bu­lance who was called out to at­tend to a young child who col­lapsed at his church in Katle­hong.

The child’s mother Non­tombi Gwam on Wed­nes­day also opened a case of cul­pa­ble homi­cide against the paramedics af­ter her three-year-old daugh­ter died.

Gwam ex­plained in a state­ment that she turned to the church af­ter nurses at the Davey­ton Clinic turned her away on Satur­day‚ claim­ing they didn’t have drips for the child who had di­ar­rhoea.

She said she could not go to the hospi­tal be­cause she did not get a re­fer­ral let­ter from the clinic’s nurses.

Po­lice have been given 14 days to bring the case against Mot­soe­neng to court.

The po­lice’s Le­setja Matho­bela said Mboro was ar­rested on Wed­nes­day, but is out on a warning, since the charge against him is com­mon as­sault. The mat­ter was not on the court roll when Mboro ar­rived for his first ap­pear­ance yes­ter­day morn­ing.

The Emer­gency Med­i­cal Ser­vices spokesper­son, Wil­liam Nt­ladi said the child was de­clared dead on the scene. “There was a mis­un­der­stand­ing be­tween the driver of the am­bu­lance and the pas­tor, when the pas­tor man­han­dled the lady.”

Nt­ladi said that a con­fronta­tion en­sued be­tween the crew and the pas­tor dur­ing which a fe­male am­bu­lance driver was man­han­dled on the scene by the pas­tor, sup­ported by the con­gre­ga­tion.

“In­for­ma­tion re­ceived by po­lice is that a mother took her child to church to be prayed for. The child then vom­ited and an am­bu­lance was called,” Matho­bela said an al­ter­ca­tion be­gan af­ter church­go­ers ac­cused the am­bu­lance crew of ar­riv­ing late.

“It has been con­firmed that the child died in church,” Matho­bela said.
