Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) leader, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, on Tuesday gave out over 3 000 bags of maize to people of flood-hit lakeshore district of Karonga, as part of his prophetic work to reach out to people in dire need of food in the country.
Bushiri maize was given out at Kasoba Primary School grounds .
According to his public relations officer Kelvin Sulugwe, The self-styled ‘Major 1’ is expected to personally give out more maize at Karonga Community Ground Wednesday, saying he is pumping in K100 million in the charity.
Sulugwe said thousands of other beneficiaries including the Karonga District Hospital would be reached out.
He said Prophet Bushiri will also give out 5,000 blankets, plates and cups.
During the ceremony, chaos erupted as people struggled to get a bag of maize [each weighing 25 kilograms] despite their being enough for everyone.
Nyasa Times understands that the prophet’s way is “everyone should go home with a bag.”
Asked where they would be heading to after Karonga, Sulugwe said it all depended on “the prophet with his God.”
Sulugwe said no one in the ECG family knew they would get “as far as Karonga. We don’t know where we will go next.”
Sulugwe revealed that they had offloaded about twelve trucks so far in their campaign to help people who have no food in the country.
‘Major 1’ has repeatedly said that he will “support” every leadership in supporting the citizenry.
The multi-billionaire, currently based in South Africa, is arguably one of the richest Malawian, boasting of about 16 gold mines and three private jets.
