Flamboyant man of God, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has shut down all his churches in South Africa until further notice.

This decision is coming at the back of directives given by SA  President Cyril Ramaphosa as preventive measures against Coronavirus.

Below is the full statement issues by Bushiri via his social media handles.

Greetings to ALL members of the Enlightened Christian Gathering Church as well as all my partners of PSBM staying in South Africa.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for you continued support with regards to the smooth running of the church as well as all our various programs.

However, in the wake of the CORONA VIRUS pandemic, it is important that we comply to the strict instructions that have come through the President of this nation, President Cyril Ramaphosa. And our compliance means any gathering of more than 100 people ought to be avoided at all costs.

As the world continues to monitor the COVID-19 Pandemic, your safety is my top priority. With that said, it is out of our great love for you that I announce that, ALL services- in all our South African churches, shall be postponed until further notice, effective immediately.

This includes midweek, home cell and Sunday services. All programs tabulated on our timetable, therefore, have also been cancelled indefinitely.

In that same line of communication, please take note that I will continue to minister to you all, via our online media platforms as well as the Prophetic Channel. ⁣

During this time, I encourage you to take care of yourself, stay informed, stay away from public places and follow the instructions of health officials and the Centers for Disease Control.⁣ I am praying for you knowing fully well that God is watching over you. God bless you.
