The arch-nemesis of the self-proclaimed prophet "Major 1" Bushiri, Pastor Mboro has opened up about Bushiri and his wife Mary's recent arrest. The controversial pastor has said that he prayed to God for intervention in order for the arrests to be made.
“It is not easy to deal with such a man - you need a spiritual covering to fight this. It needed God's divine intervention," he said according to a Timeslive article.
His words come shortly after the Hawks closed in on the leaders of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) at their home earlier this week. It was reported that his wife was first arrested at their family home while Bshiri, who had initially evaded arrest, turned himself in later that day.
Meanwhile, Mboro has called on South Africans to continue backing him with their support. He has also asked them to unite in prayer against what he calls spiritual warfare.
"SA has been captured and I need people to understand this. It's a spiritual war. I still need your prayers, I still need your support.”
Earlier this week Briefly.co.za reported, Twitter users are in utter disbelief at a post shared by one of controversial religious leader, Shepherd Bushiri's followers. Obakeng Kelebogile Matlapeng shared a post on Facebook after the Bushiris were arrested.
"Papa we are behind you. We know you are arrested for our sins."
Popular parody account AdvoBarryRoux shared the post to Twitter with the caption: "Bushiri is arrested for what?" Saffa tweeps rushed to his replies section to share their thoughts on Bushiri and his followers.
After the widely covered arrest, Bushiri's supporters arrived in their numbers to protest outside court. This after his followers flocked to the Pretoria Magistrate's Court to support their religious leader and his wife, Mary, after they were arrested by the Hawks.
