Bushiri jokes about a congregational takeover

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s Enlightened Christian Gathering Church has been reported to be seeing an influx of people from all walks of life of late. This is attributed to the South African based church’s purported growth. However, there has never been any clear insight as to the exact rate of the ministry’s rising from Bushiri’s inner circle.

In a rare interview with the prophet’s Personal Assistant , Sylvester Mkanda, he spoke of some of the issues that have been making rounds only as rumours.

Mkanda said the church recognizes that it is expanding at a rate they never anticipated.

“The rate at which the church is growing is unimaginable,” explained the personal assistant.

Mkanda revealed of the church’s expansion, at times dragging one to and fro the character of a doubting Thomas.

“The church has grown so big that sometimes we are unable to count the numbers. Imagine having four overflows. I remember our papa saying the vision will overtake us if we are not careful,” he said. Papa is a common reference to the man of God himself.

It’s hard to tell why people opt for Bushiri’s ministry in an Africa marked by a boom in the religious world. It takes a simple talk over with the prophet’s personal assistant however to understand the simplicity behind the church’s fame.

Mkanda attributed the Church’s fame to God, and God only.

“It is the power and the movement of God through Major Prophet Shepherd Bushiri,” he said.

It is because people have heard a lot about miracles but they haven’t had some upon themselves. He says this forces them to flock to Bushiri.

“People want his God to manifest in their lives. People have heard enough of miracles being around the corner, they want to see them happen.”

The church has of late acted the hub of celebrities and other very famous people. To Mkanda, this is nothing. That is a house of God and it’s so normal that it should be frequented by people regardless of class, age, or gender. However, he still has to make reference to some. You can never know what inspires others.

“There are lots of famous people in all circles attending the church’s services,” he explains, at first reluctant to go deep into the details.

The prophet’s personal assistant says there have been comedians, politicians, musicians and ministers, among others.

“The mayor of Limpopo has been here too,” he adds, finally shading some light on the kind of people that have put effort to find themselves at one of Bushiri’s church gatherings.

Mkanda said the church has also been visited by a daughter to the King of Durban, former president of the South African Football Association, directors in different government departments (South Africa plus other African countries), and even Nigerian actors. “One of them being Osita Iheme.”

The church’s expansion hasn’t been a South African, or an African affair only. Apart from Malawi, its birth place, it’s got branches all over the world. According to Mkanda, ECG is in Europe, America and Asia too.
