- 3 women reportedly passed away at Prophet Shepherd Bushiri's church recently
- Police later indicated that the women weren't identified immediately until after several days
- This prompted Twitter users to ask why Bushiri didn't use his "prophetic powers" to identify the women
Twitter users are perplexed as to why Prophet Shepherd Bushiri was apparently unable to identify the people who passed away at his church recently.
As Briefly.co.za reported, three women passed away during a stampede on 28 December at the Enlightened Christian Gathering church in Pretoria.
IOL reported that police were unable to identify the women for several days. As a result, they couldn't locate their families immediately.
This has prompted South Africans on Twitter to wonder why Bushiri couldn't use his infamous "prophetic powers" to identify the women.
Parody account @AdvBarryRoux asked:
How come Shepherd Bushiri is not able to identify the people who died at his church. I thought he could prophesy people's names & where they stay.
This sparked a flurry of hilarious replies from other Twitter users. One commenter joked that "terms and conditions" probably apply on Bushiri's prophetic powers.
Another one wondered why the preacher couldn't foresee the stampede that caused the deaths of the women in the first place.
Others suggested some kind of bizarre sacrifice being a possibility.
Some tweeps argued that Bushiri can't really prophesy because he's a "false prophet."
