Prophet Shepherd Bushiri revealed he would be pledging R400,000 towards emergency services in Alexandra following the devastating fire on Tuesday.
On Thursday, Major One visited the township after a fire destroyed at least 100 shacks following the collapse of an electricity pylon and its overhead lines.
Bushiri thanked emergency services volunteers and vowed to donate R400k, which should be used for the children affected by the fire.
According to Eyewitness News, Bushiri was surrounded by 50 people as he walked around, starting at the Stjwetla informal settlement.
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."
