Bushiri who arrived in the country through Chileka Airport in Blantyre on Wednesday proceed to Zomba where he gave villagers a lifeline through a relief maize donation .

Over 5,000 bags, each weighing 25kg, were offloaded and distributed to the needy.

Speaking after making the donation, Bushiri said apart from helping people spiritually, his prophetic church has an obligation to help people even on food distribution.

“God sent me as a man of God not only to assist people spiritually, but also socially,” he said.

Bushiri explained that Malawi needs help from all sectors and he is taking a leading role to help government address hunger issues.

“I understand that there is hunger in our country. We cannot deny that fact and we cannot wait for government to address the crisis alone,” said Bushiri accompanied by his army of “evangelists”.

The ‘Major 1’ said his global humanitarian and philanthropic activities under ‘Prophetic Channel Aid’ will always include his home country for causes to alleviate the plight of those in need.

Bushiri said he understands that a lot of countries in the Southern Africa have been hit by food shortage and pledged to continue assisting government.

“This is what the church is about. It’s about giving,” said Bushiri.

He also said people should not politicise his charity activities as he has no political ambitions.

“I am contented as a church leader and have no political ambitions,” he asserted.

Bushiri also said as a church leader he supports and work with a government of the day, saying he will help President Peter Mutharika in the fight against hunger and any challenges the nation is facing.

“As a church leader, am mandated to support our President and remain his pillar in all well being matters. This is biblical and not political. Am a religious leader and not a politician. I go by biblical and spiritual doctrine,” he stated.

Bushiri prayed for people in the area, saying apart from relief items, flood they also need religious care for them to build their spiritual relationship with God.

Bushiri church’s broadcast arm, Prophetic TV was co-ordinating the relief teams.
