The Christians of South Africa (COSA) organization on Tuesday pledged solidarity with Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church leader Prophet Shepherd Bushiri who has faced allegations of soliciting sexual favors amongst several women within his vast church.

Civil rights movement #NotInMyName on Sunday criticized Bushiri, accusing him of taking advantage of several women within his highly popular church which has almost one million registered members.

The ECG church, headed by the charismatic Bushiri, draws thousands of people to its services on several days each week.
