The three women who passed away during a stampede at Shepherd Bushiri’s Enlightened Christian Gathering Church were laid to rest in Pretoria.
Three women died during a stampede at Shepherd Bushiri’s Enlightened Christian Gathering Church in Pretoria on the 28th.
This led to a huge amount of drama as the church was then faced with a charge of defeating the ends of justice after the bodies of the women were moved from the scene without authorities being involved.
Then the police had to be called in when protestors started burning tyres outside the church, demanding the prophet to answer their questions.
South Africans want to know exactly how the women died.
These women were laid to rest in Pretoria on 5 January.
However, the families of the women are not happy, and it's easy to understand why.
Briefly.co.za reported that one woman was informed on the 4th of January that her mother was among those who died in Busthiri's church.
She was not aware where her mother was until she was told that she was dead.
There are still many questions about the incident.
