ENLIGHTENED Christian Gathering (ECG) leader, Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary have been arrested by the Hawks over an investment scheme called Rising Estate.
According to the statement issued by the church, the couple was asked to present themselves to the Hawks offices on Monday night in Pretoria accompanied by their lawyers to discuss an issue relating to the investment company.
The incident comes after several people have alleged that they were robbed of their hard earned monies by Bushiri through an investment scheme, which was now refusing to release funds back to them.
The 37-year-old pastor who is also regarded as a prophet by his followers has branches of his church in other African countries and around the world.
Bushiri is known for staging choreographed miracles which video experts have dismissed as fraud.
Besides ministry, Bushiri is also a motivational speaker, author and businessman.
