Shepherd Bushiri, the leader of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church, has been arrested.

The church’s External Relations Manager, Maynard Manyowa posted a statement on Bushiri’s official Facebook account informing congregants of the arrest.

According to the post, Bushiri and his wife Mary were arrested at the Sparkling Waters Hotel in Rustenburg this morning.

The post claims that Bushiri is facing charges of fraud and money laundering.

Last year Sowetan’s sister paper, Sunday World, reported that the police’s elite crime-fighting unit, the Hawks, was investigating charismatic prophet Shepherd Bushiri for money laundering after members of the church leadership claimed he was sending an estimated R15-million a month to Malawi, his country of birth.

The money was allegedly transported out of South Africa in Bushiri’s private jet and other vehicles.

  1. Throughout the great design of things you secure a B- with regard to effort. Where you confused me ended up being in your specifics. As people say, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be more accurate right here. Having said that, permit me tell you what exactly did give good results. Your text is definitely pretty engaging which is possibly the reason why I am making the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, despite the fact that I can certainly see a leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not confident of just how you appear to connect the ideas which inturn help to make your conclusion. For right now I shall subscribe to your position but trust in the near future you connect your dots better.
