Two Southern African Prophets, Bushiri, Mboro, fight dirty over fraud allegations



Two Southern African clerics, Malawian Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and Prophet Paseka Mboro Motsoeneng who is from South Africa, are currently engaged in a bitter feud following allegations by a South African woman, Felicia Sibeko, that Bushiri hacked the social media accounts belonging to her and Mboro to commit fraud.

In the accusation made on Thursday,
Sibeko alleged that Bushiri who is the founder of Enlightened Christian Gathering Church (ECGC) had scammed her of millions of Rands she had invested in Bushiri’s gold and forex commodities scheme.

She claimed to have initially invested K4.5 million, (about R150 thousand) in the scheme with Bushiri promising her that her investment would generate over K49 million (R1 million) in the space of six months.

“I was scammed by Shepherd Bushiri after investing the last money we had secured for us and the future of our children, selling our business because he assured us that we are definitely going to have great returns on our investment,” Sibeko said.

“We were assured that our lives will change. However, we are now living in poverty. We are in debts. My child can’t go to varsity because we don’t even have a cent to buy my child clothes or food, not to mention school fees.

“This so called man of God, Major 1, ruined our lives. We only wanted a better life for ourselves, we trusted him,” Sibeko said in the statement.

But Prophet Bushiri is however, suing his erstwhile close friend, Prophet Mboro whom he believes instigated the woman to come up with the allegations against him.

Bushiri on Friday, filed a lawsuit against Mboro, the founder of Incredible Happenings Ministries and president of the Church Mandate Turn Around Movement, accusing Mboro of “making soulish prayers, and directing all sorts of bad remarks and name-calling” against him.

Mboro who confirmed the lawsuit by Bushiri, said the Malawian cleric was just diverting from the issue on ground as the lawsuit was an attempt to intimidate and silence his efforts so that he could “back down from helping people like Felicia Sibeko and her family.”

“I will not back down from helping people in need because of summons which Bushiri legal team sent in attempts to intimidate and silent me.

“I will continue to stand up tall and defend, help and speak for anyone who needs my assistance” Prophet Mboro said in a statement, insisting that his social media was truly hacked by Prophet Bushiri.

“Some of the videos where I spoke of Bushiri got deleted off our official Facebook. Clearly, this is yet another attack from Bushiri and his hackers” said Mboro.
