POPULAR Malawi-born prophet Shepherd Bushiri (Major One) is known to be living large in Mzansi.
But members of his Church
, Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG), complain they’ve been emptying their pockets to build a church in Midrand.
The church services are held at rented premises in Pretoria North.
These allegations by church members came after rumours about Bushiri’s right-hand man, Prophet
Mpho Mokoena and her husband Thapelo Motsepe said they pledged R500 000.
“Our money is wasted,” said the couple. “There’s still no church.”
Businessman Ogbuagu Akinsemoyin said he donated R1 million toward the construction of the church.
A Sunday Sun source said: “Prophet Hara allegedly bought Lebo Nemasiwana a house worth R6 million in an upmarket estate.”
Another church member said: “Lebo was also spoilt with a BMW i8.
“Prophet Hara is doing this, yet he has a wife in Malawi.”
The SunTeam visited the said estate in Midrand. The occupant of the house on it, indeed Lebo Nemasiwana, said: “Church people always complain.
“They should face Major One, not me.”
Church spokesperson, Angela Nee, said Major One is investigating pastors who are stealing money to spend on women.
She confirmed land was bought in Midrand for a church, and said one businessman had pledged R20 million.
Angela also spoke on behalf of Prophet Hara.
“He’s admitted to knowing a 23-year-old woman, but won’t comment further.”
