Fraud-accused Shepherd Bushiri has launched a subscription-only online church service called Major 1 connect.
The Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) Church said in a statement on Monday that the move to start the online church was an intelligent and timely response to the suspension of physical church meetings due to the raging Covid-19 pandemic.
According to reports the app has already been downloaded 10,000 though the church is expecting the number to reach 25 000 before the next service.
How much does the app cost
Users will have to pay R79.99 for the Major 1 Connect Application, which can be found on AppStore and Google Store.
The church said that over six million people had jumped at the chance to interact with the prophet when the app was launched on Sunday 19 April.
These six million people are said to have watched the broadcast through streaming services, with 7 000 having logged into the app.
