- Protesters burnt tyres in close proximity to the ECG church demanding that “Prophet” Sheperd Bushiri be deported
- One of the men was arrested but has now confessed to Bushiri and begged for forgiveness
- Congregants of the ECG church were shocked on Sunday as Bushiri publicly forgave the man and consoled him
“Prophet” Sheperd Bushiri stunned his congregation at his ECG church on Sunday when he showed his compassionate side.
In January, Bushiri’s church was under fire (literally) as a group of protesters burnt tyres outside of the ECG premises.
The group of men demanded that Bushiri be deported back to Malawi and that the church be closed.
The men were arrested at the time but 1 of the men allegedly confessed to being part of the attack and begged Bushiri for forgiveness at his church on Sunday.
ECG News reported the man to be Praise Ceba, who hails from Lesotho.
Ceba revealed to congregants that he is homeless and that he burnt tyres for 3 days just outside of the church.
He said, “In the fire of the protest, I was shot in the mouth, by the police, for talking too much. I was arrested and since then my life has been in a mess. Nothing is working.”
Ceba said he realised that he had done wrong against a man of God, which prompted him to attend the service and request forgiveness.
Major 1 showed compassion for Ceba and immediately forgave him.
He gave Ceba a hug and stated that God would restore the young man.
