Almost exactly 3 months since the horrific deaths of 3 of Shepherd Bushiri’s church members (James Nee, Brain Grants, and Beston Khamba) he’s in the spotlight again after the reported deaths of yet 3 more of his parishioners. The three who were sacrificed 3 months ago were men, this time all 3 were women. People of South Africa, If you want to stop these ritual killings MAKE BUSHIRI LOOK AT THE CORPSES!
Three women have died and nine others were injured during a stampede at Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s Enlightened Christian Gathering Church in Pretoria on Friday night, Tshwane West police confirmed.
Spokesperson for the Tshwane West Cluster police, Captain Augustinah Selepe, said in a statement that the police only heard about the stampede on Saturday afternoon, long after the deaths of the three women and officers were immediately dispatched to the scene.
The church is situated at the Tshwane Events Centre in Pretoria and the corpses were quickly whisked away to Bushiri’s privately owned mortuary without informing the police or medical professionals!
According to Selepe, the police believe (according to witnesses) that a strange thunderstorm prompted the congregation to push each other around during a church service, leading to the stampede. The service began at around 20:00 on Friday night.
On Saturday morning Bushiri’s attorney, Terrance Baloyi of Baloyi Ntsako Attorneys, told News24 that the stampede occurred when people tried to take shelter inside the church during a thunderstorm
Baloyi said some people panicked and he confirmed that three people were killed.
“We regret the incident as a church because it happened within our premises,” Baloyi said at the time.
However, according to the police, the exact cause of the incident is still unconfirmed. Police have also requested that anyone with information about a missing person, who attended the church service, please contact the Pretoria West police station.
“We offer our most [sincere] condolence[s] to the families who lost their loved ones during the stampede, and speedy recovery to those injured,” said Mthombeni.
PASTOR Shepherd Bushiri and officials from his Enlightened Christian Gathering church are facing a case of defeating the ends of justice and of interfering with police work, after they removed the bodies of three women from their Pretoria church after they died, apparently after a stampede, last Friday.
They were taken to a private mortuary owned by Shepherd Bushiri in Pretoria West.
Police yesterday slammed the church for not reporting the incident to the police. Three females had died and 12 were injured during a “stampede to get into the church” during a thunderstorm on Friday afternoon.
The injured congregants were taken to Kalafong Hospital and Pretoria West Hospital. Yesterday police spokesperson Captain Kay Makhubela, explained the proper procedure. “When this type of thing happens you either phone an ambulance or the police, so paramedics can check if they can resuscitate the person. If the person has died they certify the death.”
He stressed “only authorized people” were allowed to remove bodies, “not paramedics or a person from a private mortuary”.
Bushiri’s lawyer, Terrance Baloyi, said: “We suspended the head of the church who runs the Pretoria branch pending investigations.”
People discussed the bizarre incident on social media. Facebook user Mampe Deborah Letsoale said she had found her mom at RedFord mortuary two days later. “She passed away on December 28 due to Bushiri’s church’s stampede. We were sent from pillar to post by Bushiri’s people they kept my mom’s body at their mortuary in Saulsville.”
“An unexpected thunderstorm came and no one was prepared for it and panicked…” Ritual killings ALWAYS look like accidental deaths. South African’s SHINE YOUR EYES, if he were a REAL PROPHET he would have foreseen the tragedy! He is feeding your people to his demon!
RIP to the victims of Bushiri’s evil, may Yah comfort those who are grieving.
