The Christians of South Africa (Cosa) organisation has condemned assaults Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church chief Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, saying it is the best stage of witchcraft.
“Prophet Bushiri is amongst quite a few males on this nation who’ve been accused of soliciting sexual favours. Attacking the ECG church primarily based on these allegations is the best stage of witchcraft which solely God can heal,” Cosa president Pastor Derick Mosoana advised the South Africa media on Tuesday.
“Pastor Phoswa of Rivers of Dwelling Waters, underneath the management of Bishop Zondo, was in some unspecified time in the future a sufferer to smear marketing campaign and was later cleared. Cosa is worried by the rising stage of rehearsed allegations in opposition to pastors in South Africa.”
Mosoana stated the continuing “smear marketing campaign” in opposition to Bushiri is a wake-up name to males of the fabric and church buildings in South Africa.
Civil rights motion #NotInMyName on Sunday criticised Bushiri, accusing him of making the most of a number of ladies inside his extremely standard church which has nearly a million registered members.
Bushiri’s exterior media relations supervisor Maynard Manyowa stated the charismatic preacher has taken the accusations very significantly and has dispatched emissaries to “have interaction #NotInMyName instantly, and to clear the air on the matter”.
Manyowa stated the allegations can’t be taken calmly and Bushiri is on file at his church, urging his hundreds of followers to respect ladies in all aspects of their lives.
