Popular preacher and leader of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has fired seven of his pastors and suspended five of them for not being loyal and labelling him a fake prophet. Bushiri communicated the decision in a leaked Whatsapp audio where he stated the pastors were plotting a massive rebellion against him. Bushiri has since made the decision known to branch and district pastors.
Bushiri has also fumed about other pastors from other churches who are calling him a fake prophet and who are mocking his church doctrine. Bushiri says he believes there is a bigger plot against his church.
Names of Pastors fired by Bushiri
The seven pastors who were booted from the church, according to Bushiri’s clip, include Reverend Arthur, Martin Kunje, apostle Stanley, pastor Dunamis, Mike Faiton, Wilson Madise, and apostle Felixosis. Those who were suspended pending an investigation, Bushiri said, were apostle Hoppings, pastor Kadzuwa, pastor Eric Kusane, and pastor Wisdom and David Ruach. He said they had not said much on the WhatsApp group.
Bushiri says he has the screenshots of the conversations by the pastors from the private Whatsapp group. So bad were the contents that he decided to fire them without going for any disciplinary process.
Bushiri says he feel betrayed by a pastor called Felixosis, as he took him for his own son having taken care of him and allowed him to live in his own house. He realised Felixosis was actuallythe once who was inciting others to rebel against him.
Bushiri called for the church to remain united and to shake off the recent betrayal it was facing from other pastors. He says the church is not a project or a company but the house of God.
Bushiri refused to comment on the matter.
