The Asset Forfeiture Unit has attached popular self-proclaimed prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s private jet.
Bushiri leads the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church.
The Hawks made an application to have the R20 million worth private jet attached as part of an investigation into Bushiri and his wife.
Bushiri and his wife stand accused of money laundering and fraud and are out on bail of R100 000 each.
The controversial pair is yet to respond to the Hawks, the directorate’s spokesperson, Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.
Several allegations have been levelled against Bushiri and his wife, including contravening the Exchange Control Regulations Act in relation to $1,147,200 worth of foreign currency.
