Pastor Mboro Motsoeneng was about to lose his posh BMW i8 after failing to pay the bank instalments for three months.

Motsoeneng, who is the leader of the Incredible Happenings church in Katlehong, on the East Rand, was almost R60000 in arrears when Absa bank went to the South Gauteng High Court to apply for an order to grab the shiny wheels from him.

As repo men were looking for him to relieve him of the R1.5-million sports monster, Mboro moved swiftly to pay the outstanding money and continued to enjoy the doodle bug.

Mboro told Sunday World that he did not pay Absa on purpose as the bank owed him R2-million.The parties have been having running battles since April last year when Mboro claimed the bank unlawfully debited his account to the tune of more than R1-million.

"Absa owes me R2-million. I'm not broke. I know there are a lot of people who would love to hear that Mboro is broke but it is not the time," he said. "I refused to pay Absa and ignored their communication because I have been requesting that they pay back my money first.

"Now the money is sitting at R2-million and they do not want to pay it. I have proof of communication with the bank; they have never resolved the issue."
He said when the repo men were breathing down his neck, he "eventually resorted to paying the lawyers R60000 to get rid of the legal fees.

"But the BMW is not going anywhere. It will always be here".
