Scores of members were seen rendering prayers, petitions and words of support for Prophet Shepherd Bushiri. The case was rolled over to Friday 23 October, the accused however had to remain in jail at the Kgosi Mampuru correctional services.

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri Business Ventures
According to Shepperd Bushiri, he ventured into business to support his family as he does not believe the church must support all his family needs. In Bushiri’s profile he has never hidden the fact that he is also a business man as much as he is a prophet.
Bushiri also runs an investment company, Shepherd Bushiri Investments (Pty) Ltd, a global investment company based in Sandton near Johannesburg, with interests in mining, real estate, an airline and other entrepreneurial pursuits.
