The followers and fans of Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) can now watch him live via his app but not free, but R80 has to be paid for monthly subscription.
Reports confirm that about 10,000 enthusiasts have already downloaded the app. The man of God popularly known as Major1 pocketed R800,000 for a start.
The app is tagged ‘Major 1 Connect’ It was posted on the church Facebook page that about 7,000 connected to watch the man of God recently.
Prophet Bushiri was roasted recently for being overly ambitious when he pressured his congregants for money (tithes and offerings) online and on tv.
The accusations came after Bushiri asked South Africans to still give their offerings and tithes despite his church being closed due to the lockdown.
On the flip side, Bishop David Oyedepo, general overseer of Winners Chapel distributes relief package to less privileged households in Ogun State in Nigeria on a weekly basis during the lockdown and the church promises the food package will be distributed throughout the lockdown period.
