It appears in South Africa you either love or hate Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, but there's not denying he does do good as well.
While the religious leader often gets criticised by those who dislike him, he has shown a compassionate side on occasion.
The ECG leader visited a North West community on Tuesday to hand out food parcels to less fortunate families.
The lockdown has been hard on all South Africans but the poor communities have been hit the hardest.
So, Bushiri decided to give back to South Africans. He and members of his church handed over parcels to Professor Job Mokgoro at the Department of Agriculture Buildings in Rustenberg.
Major 1 revealed it's not the first time he has blessed Mzansi during the lockdown.
His church quoted him online saying:
"Since last month, we have been distributing food parcels, giving out cash disbursements, providing healthy kits and, also, holding special online prayers to our people in different provinces. So far, through our local leaders and pastors, we have been to Durban, Vaal, New Castle, Sebokeng, King Williams, Nelspruit, Limpopo and today we are here in Rustenberg."

ECG added on Facebook that Bushiri also hinted at making a contribution to the solidarity fund.
Briefly.co.za previously reported Bushiri has launched an app on mobile services that would allow his followers to watch his sermons live.
The app reportedly has a subscription fee of R80 a month and more than 10 000 people have already downloaded it.
