Prophet Bushiri, wife granted R100, 000 bail each

Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary, who were arrested by the Hawks on Friday, were on Wednesday granted bail of R100, 000 each.

The couple stand accused of money laundering and fraud.

Bushiri, commonly referred to as “Major 1”, appeared in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court, where throngs of supporters displayed posters in solidarity with their controversial leader.

His faithful congregants amassed outside court to demand his release, and that the charges be dropped.

On hearing of their pending release on bail, the hundreds of supporters lifted their hands to the sky and bowed to the ground. Chanting, dancing, praying and crying ensued.

“Daddy is out, yay…,” one congregant cheered.

The crowd said they anticipate Pastor Bushiri will address them at a church service scheduled for later on Wednesday.

Bushiri and his wife were arrested at the Sparkling Waters hotel in Rustenburg.

The Hawks’ case against the pair concerns alleged offences of fraud, money laundering and contravention of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (POCA).

The crimes were allegedly committed from 2015 in relation to Exchange Control Regulations related to foreign currency in the amount of $1,147,200 (about R15.3m), according to the Hawks.

The couple run several business enterprises in South Africa and abroad.

    • Meg

      @pony If you hate people who get rich in the name of God, you are a witch. Go and read the verse below and repent
      2 Corinthians 8 vs 9
      You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich.

    Pipo who go 2 prophetic church chose it without force and it sad that these church are under attack by evil through pipo fighting the growth. If u go 2 any service u register 4 prayerline at no fee but oil u buy bcoz ever at church we buy tradition mahua 4 member 2 buy 2 rise money it is normal but if u hav large followers u b monitered by old churchs and report 2 govt that u are not normal. God wil judge wil us bcoz he know the truth and if prophet bushili innocent. it wil show bcoz at one time requestd 4 briber he refused and GOD Is watching all of us. Thank GOD, he is released today on bail and GOD bless u all 4 yo support.

    Does God & Bible entertain riches & big money?(Mt.6:19-21,24). ok?

    • NK

      I think you don’t read the bible very well. You should read this verse
      2Corinthians 8 vs 9
      You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich.

    Since I was born, I have never seen so many thousands of grown-up men and women, of extreme high intellect, make themselves look like fools over a charlatan. Crying,”They have taken our Papa! They have taken our father in handcuffs! Fire! Fire! Fire!”……What muti does this guy burn in his church to hypnotise all these people? This is shocking…..

    • Joy , my people perish because of luck of knowledge

      Joy,Joy u are out of your mind. The Bible says in Hosea 6 :10… My people perish because of lucky of knowledge. You are heading for destruction my dear. Repent or you will have a premature death.
