Controversial religious leader, Shepherd Bushiri, is no stranger to news headlines but has outdone himself this week.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on a classic video where Bushiri was roasted for asking his followers to cough up R500 million.
The self-proclaimed prophet was arrested on charges of fraud and money laundering and has been attending the bail hearing this week.
Supporters of the embattled leader flocked to the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court in Pretoria.
It was confirmed that Bushiri and his wife were released and granted bail of R100 000 each.
However, as his somewhat miraculous court exit took place, a miracle of a different kind took place just outside of the court.
The Citizen reported that Bushiri supporters witnessed angels in the sky on Wednesday.
Video footage revealed the crowd all pointing to the sky in unison as they claimed to see the miracle unfold.
However, none of the photographers nor journalists were able to see anything.
It is common knowledge that Bushiri enjoys a massive following in South Africa.
In fact, it’s been claimed that his congregation amounts to 700 000 in Mzansi alone.
