- Prophet Bushiri has allegedly paid back R63,000 to a couple
- The couple had allegedly invested R130,000 in Bushiri's church
- They claim the preacher promised them R1million a month in a forex trading deal, but it apparently never materialised
Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has allegedly paid back part of the money a couple allegedly lost after they invested in his church.
Twitter account @AdvBarryRoux made the claim in a post yesterday, Briefly.co.za gathered. It wrote:
In the other unrelated news: The Thug Shepherd Bushiri paid 63k to the family he scammed 130k after my tweets. He promised to pay them the remaining money before the end of this month.
@AdvBarryRoux shared a screenshot of an apparent WhatsApp chat with a source related to the story. The alleged chat is seemingly the basis of @AdvBarryRoux's claim.
In December 2018, @AdvBarryRoux posted a lengthy thread of tweets detailing how the couple had apparently invested R130,000 in Bushiri's church in July 2017.
One of the tweets claimed:
Shepherd Bushiri Investments scammed R130 000 from a couple in his church. He promised they will get R1 million per month if they invest in his Forex and Commodities Trading.
However, the unnamed couple claim that the returns they had expected from their investment never materialised.
They had apparently sold their quantum minibus taxi to make the investment, seemingly leaving them without an income.
@AdvBarryRoux also shared a photo of a bank payment slip allegedly showing the R130,000 payment. These claims have not been independently verified, however.
