- Shepherd Bushiri is in the news and in hot water again
- Bushiri’s church is accused of owing R849 500 to a member of the congregation
- The claim is in respect of transport services supplied
Religious leader Sheperd Bushiri is facing another unsavoury court battle.
The self-proclaimed prophet is being dragged to court as his Enlightened Christian Gathering church is said to owe R849 500 in debt.
One of the church’s own congregation members opened the case against them due to non-payment of services rendered.
IOL News reported that the businesswoman provided transport services for the church choir between 2016 and 2018.
Based on documentation filed in the North Gauteng High Court, her company transported the choir in December 2016.
The agreement was that 81 buses were hired. The same trip and price was agreed in May 2017.
The total cost of the 2 trips amounted to R624 400 but the church only paid R223 900.
This year in June, transport services were requested again to the tune of R545 000 but the church only managed to settle R100 000 of that bill.
The total amount owed therefore comes to R849 500.
The aggrieved businesswoman has now demanded the amount owed plus interest of 10,5% per annum as well as legal costs.
The news follows an incident where Bushiri was forced to repay R100 000 to a different church member following a failed investment scheme.
Briefly.co.za gathered that 2018 has been a challenging year for Bushiri as he’s had to contend with a sexual assault allegation as well.
