The Botswanan government has closed down a church owned by flamboyant, self-confessed prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s church, the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG), Zambian Observer reports.
The church was shut down after violating Botswana’s laws despite being warned to stop the practice of “miracle money.”
Botswana’s Minister of Home Affairs, Edwin Batshu said the ECG church has been closed for its continued violating of the law in terms of fake money. It is alleged that Bushiri’s church is involved in miracle money that the Botswana government considers illegal.
The Minister says no ECG branch will operate in Botswana. However ECG Church officials in Botswana have appealed to Minister Batshu to reconsider the decision.
