In other Briefly.co.za news, on Wednesday this week, eTV aired the exclusive interview done with two women who claim that Prophet Shepard Bushiri had raped them on separate occasions. According to the women, Bushiri had lured them to hotel rooms where the rape occurred.
On the first occasion, the woman says she was asked to come for a prayer session at the hotel. According to her, once she arrived, Bushiri proceeded to kiss and hug her. Thereafter, the unidentified woman says she was put under some sort of spell by Bushiri who then took off her clothes and proceeded to rape her.
The second woman, also lured to a hotel room but this time for a "Bible reading" session, claimed she walked into the room to a naked Bushiri.
“He asked me to take off my clothes and then told me to turn around. I was shaking and scared. I didn’t know what to do. After that, he came on to me and everything happened.”
Bushiri has responded to these claims by accusing the women of being under the influence of law enforcement officials and trying to extort him. .
