SA Police exposes Star Newspaper’s False Reporting Against Prophet Bushiri

In what could be described as sharp stab on Star Newspaper’s lie that 96 officers were deployed to protect Prophet Bushiri and ECG, SAPS says every event organiser is treated the same.


The Tshwane metro police department (TMPD) has exposed The Star newspaper’s false reporting against Prophet Bushiri and the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church.

In its Wednesday edition, The Star newspaper carried a false article, accusing SAPS and TMPD of deploying 96 officers to protect Prophet Bushiri and the ECG Church.

Just as lies have short legs, in an interview with TimesLIVE, community safety MMC Karen Meyer for Tshwane said, “TMPD deployment at events is governed by legislation and policies. This deployment includes security services at large gatherings such as soccer and rugby matches at stadiums in Tshwane.”

He added that SAPS has its own procedures for determining the need for deployment, and TMPD plays an auxiliary role as and when needed. Every event organiser is treated the same.”

Meyer’s position concurs with Gauteng Police spokesperson Cpt Kay Makhubele that police officers were deployed to ECG, but said this was standard operational deployment as the church had applied for security through the proper channels.

ECG spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo says the church is happy that the police has come out to explain to the South Africa public after ‘that shameless act of lies peddled by The Star Newspaper.’

“There is absolutely nothing, in the story by the Star newspaper, proximate to any established or verified fact of the matter. In fact, the story is a careful piece of creation, maliciously designed to pitch ECG leader Prophet Bushiri against the South African public,” he said.

He added that when SAPS and TMPD deploys officers to ECG events, they do so to enforce law and order just as they do at any event.

“For the record, SAPS and TMPD have never provided any isolated, systematic and targeted security to Prophet Bushiri. Just as anybody who comes to ECG church events at Tshwane Events Centre, he only enjoys generic state security services as a citizen. But on a personal level, he hires his own private security,” he said.
