Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, the founder of Enlightened Christian Gathering Church (ECG), has reacted to the rape allegation levied against him.
Denying the allegation by two women, the cleric released a video evidence of women allegedly contacted to “falsely” accuse him of rape discussing the money they will be paid.
This is coming after the Police confirmed they are investigating , Prophet Shepherd Bushiri for the alleged rape of two women.
One of the women had claimed the rape occurred after he had asked her to meet him at a hotel for a prayer session.
The other rape victim however claimed that she was allegedly asked by the prophet “to study the bible” at a hotel, only to find him naked on getting there. She said;
“He asked me to take off my clothes and then told me to turn around. I was shaking and scared. I didn’t know what to do. After that he came on to me and everything happened.”
Reacting to the allegation, Prophet Bushiri stated that the law enforcement officials who he has been accusing of extortion for the past three years recruited women and children to come up with false rape allegations against him and his church members.
Enough is enough!
For the last 3 years we have been dealing with extortion. A police officer at the Hawks called Phumla Mrwebi has been intimidating women and children to come up with false rape allegations against us.
This has been done together with members of the media. This woman comes and demands money from us. The supposed victims come and demand money from us. The shameless journalists also demand money from us.
This Mrwebi woman, for the past 3 years, has been running an extortion syndicate against me through sending girls to demand money from us and if we don’t give, she told the girls to go public and accuse us of raping them.
We reported the matter in 2018 to several state institutions such as State Security Agency, Inspector General of Intelligence, police commissioners, and including the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) to bring this woman to justice and leave me alone.
As we are writing, this woman, working with Mashishi of SANCO, has again recruited several girls to be interviewed by ETV to accuse me of raping them.
Some of these girls, secretly came to us, demanding various amounts ranging from 50 000 to 2million Rands to their masters(as aforementioned) in order to stop the story from being aired by ETV. We recorded them and you can see for yourself.
Well, we told them we arenot giving a single coin to them to stop ETV from running this story. Etv must go ahead. We are going to sue you and your extortion cohorts.
This time we want to show you the power of money and justice.
We want to warn every party involved in this syndicate that I have overwhelming evidence of all their doings. A serious legal suit will follow and we will fight.
