Sheperd Bushiri and his wife Mary Bushiri are set to spend two more days in jail after their court hearing was postponed until Wednesday for a bail hearing.
The Controversial leader of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church is facing a case of fraud and money laundering and contravention of Prevention of Organized Crime Act together with his wife Mary Bushiri.
The couple were arrested on Friday morning by the Hawks at their lavish Sparkling Waters Hotel in Rustenburg and have been in police custody since.
Bushiri’s supporters gathered outside the Pretoria Commercial Court on Visage Street to protest their spiritual leaders arrest which some see as persecution from the devil.
Bushiri’s one-time nemesis now friend Prophet Paseka Paseka Motsoeneng aka Prophet Mboro of the Incredible Happenings Church was also in attendance to support Bushiri.
