South Africans vehemently rejected Prophet Shepherd Bushiri's apology over the deadly stampede at his church in December last year.
On Monday, Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church leader Shepherd Bushiri apologised for the stampede on 28 December, where three people died and 17 were reportedly injured.
“The ECG International Church would like to take this opportunity to reiterate its deepest apology to the South African people for the accident that happened at its Pretoria Branch. Despite being an accident, as a church we took, and we always do, full responsibility of the incident and we are comforted and encouraged by the level of support from different South Africans from different parts of the divide,” the controversial religious leader said.
However, Briefly.co.za gathered our readers were not impressed by the controversial prophet's apology.
Vincent Botha commented: "I have no time or respect for these lecherous,so called pastors who dressed in their expensive tailored suits and luxury cars abuse religion to take advantage of desperate people who because of their dire situations are gullible to these lies."
Collen Thompson added: "I have no respect for this man and I also don't have respect for our fellow black South Africans who are lazy to work and simply want miracles from these so called pastors, black people it's not God or miracles who's making this man rich but your hard earned cash, when will you wake up."
Mary Mabasa wrote: "Mary Mabasa I bet he's starting to be broke dats y he's apologising 'papa we do not receive.' Apology not accepted we don't want u in our show ground."
