An unfortunate family is now living in serious poverty after selling their car and giving R130 000 to Prophet Bushiri.
Felicia Sibeko says she invested R130 000 in Bushiri’s gold forex and commodities scheme, but is yet to get returns from it.Felicia said she heard about the scheme when she visited Bushiri’s Enlightened Christian Gathering Church at Tshwane Showgrounds in 2017 and made the decision to invest in it. And now her family has been left poor and are even resorting to begging for food from friends.She said she had to sell her Toyota Quantum for R130 000 in July 2017, so that she could invest in the scheme.
She claimed they were told that after investing they would be more than R1 million richer just 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,”
She said her husband also paid R2 000 to attend an investment seminar in early 2017 after being told by Bushiri that the seminar would change their 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 it was operating as taxi while their other taxi down early last year and they didn’t have money to fix it.
She said they tried speaking to Bushiri about the matter but they were blocked and left without 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.
Provincial police Spokesman Kay Makhubele confirmed the issue to the Daily Sun and said Felicia did go to the organized commercial crimes unit.
“Police opened an inquiry for investigations,” .
