Pretoria – The Black First Land First (BLF), the African National Congress, COSATU, and the Economic Freedom Fighters were among the many powerful organisations who had members and leaders present to support Prophet Bushiri as he appeared at the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court in Pretoria this morning in the capital
The BLF, have by far been the most vocal of all political outfits in the country since the prophet’s arrest last Friday.
BLF leaders have slammed the arrest, branding it as a “persecution of successful black businessman”.
Members of BLF drew parallels today, with how white people accused of corruption had been arrested in the morning of today, appeared in court the same day and released on bail immediately.
Several members of the ANC, EFF and other parties were present.
“I am not a member of the church. I am just a member of the ANC but i came because an innocent man is under attack”, said Thabo Moloi, who claimed to be a member of the ANC from Tshwane.

Major 1 is not going anywhere: Mboro
Pretoria – Prophet Mboro says Major 1 will not go back to Malawi. He will stay and preach the Gospel.
Speaking at the Commercial Crime Court premises on Monday, charismatic Preacher and Prophet, Paseka (Mboro) Motsoaneng denounced calls for the deportation of Prophet Bushiri and his family.
“He must go all over the world and preach the gospel. He can’t only preach in Malawi…his ministry is needed in South Africa”
He added that if SANCO insists on the Prophet going back to Malawi, then all businesses that are run by Chinese and Indians and even Americans must go back to their countries.
Prophet Mboro said he also runs businesses outside South Africa but he has never faced xenophobic attacks towards them. He however emphasised that the Law must take its course and that Prophet Bushiri must allow all channels to take place.
Prophet Mboro is a long term rivalry of Prophet Bushiri who turned into a friend a few months ago. He spoke earlier on Monday about the need to support each other as the black community at the Commercial Crime Court in Pretoria where Prophet Shepherd Bushiri together with his wife, Mary were supposed to appear before the court for bail application.
They are charged with fraud, money laundering and Contravention of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (POCA).
Brig Hangwani Mulaudzi said the crimes were alleged to have been committed from 2015 in relation to exchange control regulations of about $1,147,200 in foreign currency.
Prophets Shepherd and Mary are expected to appear in court on Wednesday the 6th of February following the court’s announcement that the application be postponed to that date.
Prophet Mboro stands up for Major 1
Pretoria – Controversial Prophet Paseka ‘Mboro’ Motsoeneng urged hundreds of Prophet Bushiri’s supporters who were gathered outside the Commercial Crime Court to stand with their Father who is being charged with fraud, money laundering and contravention of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (POCA) to remain calm and respect the Law.
This followed after hundreds of ECG members started chanting that they were not going to leave the court premises until Major 1 is released.
Prophet Mboro arrived at court in a white suit and matching white shoes and stole the show. In an interview with this publication, he said he came to support a brother who is been unfairly persecuted. He further narrated how the two Prophets sat down last year and decided to bury the hatchet.
He described Prophet Bushiri as a humble man and a true Man of God.
Prophet Bushiri and Prophet Mboro have had feuds for over five years, but according to both Prophets, that’s all in the past.
Mboro added that ECG members should pray for their father and their church.
He also pledged his unwavering support for Major 1.
