Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has received support from political parties after a massive attack on him following the incident in which three people died during a stampede at his church service.
The unforeseeable incident has been used as a ‘tool’ to attack Prophet Bushiri by his detractors.
Black First Land First (BLF), has said the tragic death of three black people at ECG church must not be used by those who are in competition with Major 1 and by xenophobes for nefarious agendas.
In a statement released on Sunday and signed by its leader, Andile Mximata , BLF has called on the police to do their work without fear or favour.
“At the same time we ask our people not to be used against Prophet Bushiri by people with evil agendas.
“We have never seen such violent actions waged against white Anglican, Catholic and Dutch churches.
“Despite the existence of irrefutable evidence of sexual violence perpetrated on innocent children and women by the clergy of the white churches, there is no outrage.
“Our people have freedom of religion and we must all respect that. Furthermore, BLF calls on Prophet Bushiri to fully cooperate with the police.
“We repeat, please stop the violence against fellow blacks and hands off Prophet Bushiri,” read part of the statement.
Social media users were also supporting Bushiri under a campaign called #Im standing with Prophet Bushiri.
