ECG Church’s Shepherd Bushiri reportedly does not currently have access to his private plane.

The NPA has said that a curator is looking after the jet, but that Bushiri will not be able to use it.

The Bushiris have been accused of being involved in extensive fraudulent activities. Shepherd Bushiri, who is a self-proclaimed prophet, has also come under scrutiny for some of the activities of his church.

Bushiri’s residency in South Africa is also under investigation. He received permanent residency in 2016, but his church has been operational since 2012.

The Bushiris are currently out on bail for the corruption charges, for which they were forced to pay R100 000 each. They are reportedly being represented by noted defence advocate, Barry Roux. His fee is said to be R50 000 a day.
