Paramedics 'did everything' to save child who died at Pastor Mboro’s church

JOHANNESBURG - Ekurhuleni Emergency Services officials say they did everything in their power to save a sickly three-year-old child who died at prophet Paseka Motsoeneng’s church in Katlehong on the East Rand.

The toddler’s mother had initially taken her child there to be prayed for by Motsoeneng, famously known as Pastor Mboro, but the child died in front of congregants during a service on Sunday.

Paramedics rushed to Katlehong where Mboro insisted that they take the child to a hospital, but authorities say the little girl was already dead at that time.

Ekurhuleni Emergency Services’ William Ntaldi says: “Paramedics were called for a collapsed case. On arrival, they found the child in the hands of the pastor, who brought the child into the ambulance. The paramedics treated the child before she was declared dead.”

A post-mortem will now be conducted while the church has accused emergency services of being negligent.

At the same time, police are investigating a case of assault after the pastor allegedly manhandled one of the paramedics.
