DIS, FIA after Bushiri's insurance firm


The Directorate on Intelligence and Security (DIS) and the Financial Intelligence Agency (FIA) have been roped in to investigate a curious insurance company linked to Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and warring factions of his church in Botswana.

It is alleged that FIA has uncovered traces of suspicious transactions bordering on money laundering by the Joseph Family Assurance and alerted the DIS. The Enlightened Christian Gathering Church (ECG) saw peace elude it two years ago when factions started fighting for the soul of the church leading to its closure at some point.

At the time, some pastors were suspended after the church failed to submit audited financial results for two financial years. Latest news in is that DIS and FIA are investigating allegations that funds in the Joseph Family Assurance are benefitting a few individuals and may also be being used to clean dirty money.  The insurance company is said to have changed its name from Major Assurance Family after Bushiri ordered that it be closed, as he was concerned it would harm his integrity and image.
