When it rains, it pours for Prophet Shepherd Bushiri! This time he was called a liar after he left a family heartbroken and destitute.
Felicia Sibeko says she invested $7,914 in Bushiri’s gold forex and commodities scheme, but had not received anything from it.
The 46-year-old said she heard about the scheme when she visited the Enlightened Christian Gathering Church at Tshwane Showgrounds in 2017 and decided to invest in it.
However, she now regrets that decision as her family was left poor.
She said she was even begging for food from friends.
Felicia said she sold her Toyota Quantum for $7,914 in July 2017, so that she could invest in the scheme.
She claimed they were told they would be more than R1 million richer after six months.
“I’m heartbroken, abused and I’m struggling to send my child to university. There is no more peace at home. We are suffering,”
Her husband also paid $122 to attend an investment seminar in early 2017.
“My husband was told by Bushiri that the seminar will change our financial problems.
“He even said to my husband that as a child of God we should be rich,” she said.
Felicia said the Quantum they sold was their source of income as their other taxi, an Inyati, broke down early last year and they didn’t have money to fix it.
She said when they asked for their money from Bushiri, they were blocked and not given any answers.
“We don’t even have access to speak to Bushiri. My mother and father-in-law died last year and we struggled to bury them.
“I’m heartbroken, abused and I’m struggling to send my child to university.
“There is no more peace at home. We are suffering,” she said.
