During his visit, Bushiri reportedly claimed his visit was not a PR stunt, he simply wanted to support the victims of the fire.

However, some social media users did not buy Major One's claims.

Henry Chauke, who goes by the Twitter handle‏ @Henrychauke1, wrote: "This self-proclaimed nincompoop think we will all buy his story, if he didn't want this story to trend, he would have done an EFT to the Disaster Fund and ask that it assist without him visiting the area. When is he going to jail so people can go back to their respective churches."
