Members of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) which was founded by Self Proclaimed Prophet Sheperd Bhushiri were robbed at gunpoint on Saturday 12 August 2023 at about 21:30.

About ten Kamhlushwa branch members were gathered for the night vigil.  Whilst still waiting for other members, three robbers armed with handguns and their faces covered stormed the church and robbed members of an undisclosed amount of cash, 14 cell phones, personal bank cards, and church’s back card and further demanded the personal identification numbers (PINs).

Mpumalanga Police spokesperson Brigadier Selvy Mohlala said the suspects further robbed the congregants with two vehicle keys and managed to flee the scene with one of the robbed white VW Polo Vivo which was later found abandoned at Mzinti, about seven kilometres from the robbed Church.

Meanwhile, Mpumalanga Police Commissioner Lieutenant General Semakaleng Daphney Manamela has already gathered a team of investigators to work on the case.
