Court in South Africa has adjourned a fraud and money laundering case involving Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and Mary Bushiri of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church.
Bushiri’s spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo confirmed of the adjournment of the case in a statement shared on his official facebook page.
“To all those that have been standing and voicing out for us, to those who came and those who did not come but still stand with us- may the good Lord continue to bless you,” reads in part the statement.
“Lastly, I would just like to say, may you keep us in prayers, not for the authorities to pity us and withdraw the case, rather, for the truth to come out sooner. The Bible says “the truth shall make you free” and that is all we are praying for.”
Bushiri and his wife face charges of money-laundering, fraud and contravention of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (Poca).
Their trial was postponed in August for the state and defence to submit representations.
