The president and founder of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) in South Africa, Prophet Shephered Bushiri has been denied entry into Botswana by the immigration department.
According to the declaration dated April 26, 2017 and signed by the Minister of Nationality, Immigration and Gender Affairs, Edwin J Batshu, it stipulates that the man of God will only be allowed to enter into the country if he has applied for a Visa.
“Notice is hereby given that in accordance with regulation 5 of the Immigration (Visa) Regulations, the Minister of Nationality, Immigration and Gender Affairs, hereby declares that Shepherd Huxley Bushiri of Malawian nationality is to obtain Visa to enter Botswana,” reads the declaration.
The Malawian born prophet, populary known as “Major One” is not allowed to set his foot in Botswana unless he applies for a Visa according to Botswana’s Declaration of Persons required to obtain a Visa to enter that country.
The prophet who has attracted millions of people world wide, is to have been making arrangements of having another spiritual event in Botswana this month.
After the news broke out on social media, some of his followers have reacted with anger to the government of Botswana by saying that the devil has arrived in Botswana and it needs deliverance.
