Bushiri feeds Karonga, says no presidential ambitions: Chief Kyungu applauds Malawi Prophet

Excitement engulfed villagers in Traditional Authority Kyungu in Karonga when South Africa-based Malawian prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG)truckloads of maize arrived in the area to distribute the maize to the needy.

With others chanting “Major 1!” noisily, the maize was successfully offloaded at Kasoba Primary School ground where thousands of people had already gathered upon hearing the good news that the man of God’s generosity and interest to help them with maize.

On the second day, the ‘Major 1’ joined his Prophetic TV team distributing the maize to Karonga Hospital in the company of T A Kyungu who welcomed the donation to his area.

According to Bushiri, it is his quest to help government deal with the hunger crisis that has hit Malawi so badly.

“Am so much impressed with government’s effort to deal with this problem and I feel proud to be part of the solution towards the hunger at hand,” Bushiri told local reporters who attended the ceremony at Karonga District Hospital on Wednesday, explaining further that “It is our duty as Malawi citizens to help the government and support the needy.”

On his part, T A Kyungu commended Bushiri for his kind gesture and appealed to other quarters to come and help because so many people have been affected with the problem.

“I was happy when I heard of the prophet’s visitation to the area. This is what I have been praying for, to see help for the people who have been affected with the hunger crisis in my area. Prophet Bushiri came at the right time and this is a blessing to me,” explained T A Kyungu.

Asked whether he was comfortable to welcome Bushiri’s donations following reports that some chiefs have been threatened by government officials not to welcome the donations in their area, Kyungu laughed it off, maintaining that “Bushiri’s coming to help my area is timely.”

Bushiri has so far helped people in Ntcheu, Dowa, Mzuzu, Zomba and Lilongwe spending over MK100 million for the exercise that has reached out to thousands of beneficiaries across the country.

Of late, Bushiri has met resistance from other chiefs to accept his donations for poor people because of fear that government will blacklist them and think that they are helping Bushiri score a political point.

However, speaking to Times TV with Brian Banda on Times Exclusive, Bushiri made it clear that he has no political ambitions.

“Am happy with what I do and I don’t intend to contest for what you call ‘Hot Seat’ because that would be demotion to me,” Bushiri told Brian Banda on Times TV.

the prophet’s public relations consultant Kelvin Sulungwe also told Nyasa Times that Bushiri candidly declared that he is content with his position as church leader , entrepreneurship and does not harbour any ambitions for political office.

This is indeed a good job that the prophet is doing, helping govenment. I hope others(such as Kabwila, Nsonda and Kamlepo kalua) will emulate his good gesture and not just saying the president should step down as if he is the one who has brought the hunger. Everyone is responsible and people like the ones I have mentioned have at least money than the people in the village that they can atleast help even with just one bag of maize.
