JOHANNESBURG - Self-proclaimed Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s supporters are out in their numbers to support their church leader and his wife, Mary.

The couple is appearing in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on money laundering charges.

"We are here to support our prophet, major one, who is the only prophet in the whole world. He is a man of God and I believe and I trust that he is not guilty, he is the victim of the plot of the so-called devil," said one of his supporters.

"There is no way they can take him down because our God is alive and kicking and we are not afraid."
