Thread: Bushiri sued millions over witchcraft prophecy

    Default Bushiri sued millions over witchcraft prophecy

    Controversial leader of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) Shepherd Bushiri and one of his employees are facing a mountain of legal woes following a prophecy in which a North West businesswoman was called a witch live on TV.

    Now the businesswoman who provides mining services has slapped Bushiri and his employee with letters of demand of R1-million and R500000 respectively. Lebohang Mpane, who said in her legal papers that she was defamed, has also opened a case of crimen injuria with the police.

    In the prophetic sermon, Bushiri called Mpane a sangoma who had put a spell on Sibongile Mable Miya - one of his employees and manager at one of his companies - and her ex-husband Andile Kula.

    According to the sermon posted on YouTube, Bushiri had prophesied about Miya in front of his congregation and told her that she was in serious pain after losing her husband to Mpane. In the same sermon, Bushiri could be heard saying that Mpane had bewitched the two to break them up.

    Sandton police spokesman Molefe Mogodi confirmed the case was registered and said it was transferred to Pretoria West.

    Bushiri's lawyer Terrance Ntsako Baloyi of Baloyi Ntsako Attorneys declined to comment on the two legal matters despite being sent written questions.

    In an affidavit deposed at the station, Mpane said she was deeply distressed and disturbed when she heard Bushiri's statements in a clip forwarded to her by her sister.

    "In his sermon Pastor Bushiri purported to prophesy about me, my relationship with my husband, Andile Kula, as well as circumstances under which we got married. All this theatrics in the name of 'prophecy' was done with the concurrence and active approval of the ex-wife of my husband.

    "The nature and content of the 'prophecy' was inter-alia:

    That I stole my husband from Ms Miya;
    That I used witchcraft to possess my husband and his children;
    That I have also converted my husband to be a sangoma."
    The businesswoman also said her business also took a knock as a result of Bushiri's prophecy. She also revealed that her husband was forced to resign from his work due to suspicion which was created around him as a result of the said prophecy.

    Must admit I struggled (and failed) just trying to make the Christian viewpoint make something resembling self-consistent coherent sense...let alone this.
    Beware weapons grade stupidity in post following this one

    As a Witch, I am deeply offended by Ms Miya's offence at being called a Witch.

    Farck this shirt - we still have the Witchcraft legislation on the books, meaning it's an actual offense to call someone else a Witch.
    The scepter, learning, physic, must
    All follow this and come to dust.
