  3. Jeff says:

    IN THE POOREST AND UNEDUCATED PARTS OF THE WIRLD RELIGION IS ALWAYS KING BECAUSE THE PEOPLE CANT THINK FOR THEMSELVES.. SECONDLY, THEY BIDE BEHIND RELIGION DOING EVIL THINGS…
    THIS SO-CALLED PROPHET HAS FOUND A WAY TO USE RELIGION AS A BUSINESS STEALING FROM THE MOST VULNERABLE AND UNEDUCATED..
    IF PEOPLE WERE INTELLIGENT THEY WOULD UNDERSTAND WHERE HE GETS ANY MONEY THAT HE HAS!.. HIS SO-CALLED DONATIONS IS THE RETURNING OF STOLEN MONEY.. IT IS NOT HIM BEING A CHRISTIAN, BUT HIM TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONTINUE TO MAKE A NAME FOR HIMSELF WHILE DIGGING DEEP IN THE POCKETS OF THE MOST WEAK MINDED AND VULNERABLE PEOPLE IN AFRICA!!

    RELIGION IS FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE HOPELESS!…

  4. Someone says:

    This is nonsense. He’s not even in the top 1000 richest evangelists in the world. Poor journalism. I wonder how much he’s paying you to write this rubbish.

  5. naphili says:

    No 32 ukuti ndalama wazitenga kuti? Ndi zomwe amampatsa his so called stupid bonkus followers. First of all, call yourself a prophet ,get a Bible preach a little, lie a little and you are on your way to riches!

  15. Mcloud Jere says:

    Jesus said “if you believe in me u will do miracles even more than I do” Gold and silver is for God and if you ask Him through His son Jesus he will give you more. Leave Bushiri alone.

  19. Nabanda says:

    Which means Prophet Bushiri akhonza kupeleka budget ya Malawi pa chaka.Including kumulipila president wa Malawi kkkkkkkkk. I admire you and support you Prophet.

  20. ineyo says:

    So it has taken Bushiri just 14 years to become this rich and over 20 years for TB Joshua to amass $15 million.

    God knows the truth! I am speechless but just hold on for a while;will God really allow these men amass all such riches in a dubious or satanic way as most of us think? I don’t think so…. debatable

  21. difficult says:

  26. Researcher says:

    Also google the top 10 or 15 rich people in Malawi. Chikaonda is there 5 billion, Muluzi 60 billion, Muli etc. We know that many who are on the list have looted govt coffers or organisations they work for or have used people in govt to get rich.

  36. kenneth chipeta says:

    With GOD not even the sky is the limit, Bushiri is a living testimony and whether one likes it or not this great son of Malawi is UNSTOPPABLE. I admire you MAJOR ONE and am following on your foot steps as you are following CHRIST

  37. Jokujoku says:

    Aaaaaaa , though me not of the church but can’t believe that TBJoshua can be on the tenth number, i doubt this .com credibility. Otherwise there might be something else. I don’t

  38. Lieutenant General Makiyi says:

    Tell us the truth, in 2015 Oyedepo was reported as a number one richest in the world networth was at U$ 150 million. Right now you are telling us that Pastor Enoch Adeboye who
    heads the Redeemed Christian
    Church Of God(RCCG)– net
    worth estimated $55 million is
    ranked number 3.

    Kutanthauza kuti Oyedepo chuma chake chagwa kuchokera pa U$ 150 Million kufika pa U$ 55 Million?

  39. Fred Chiphaso says:

    That is the whole reason Peter Muthalika and his DPP hate Bushiri. Envey will kill you Madala.

  40. Malawians fans are jerious to prophet sherpherd bushiri why are you talking some lies ‘nenani chilungamo osanamizila mnthuwamulungu watani bushiri to me itrust in his prophecys ‘ zonenanena ayi chinga wafa tosefe zatikhuza dont point bushiri as aconcener including JOYCE BANDA why my fellow malawians

  41. golo says:

    At the rate Major 1 is going he will soon overtake TD Jakes as the richest man of God in the world.

  42. JJ says:

    Wow! So, it’s about the riches and not salvation?

    1. Albert Moyo says:

      No 5 u seem to have a problem,the report is about wealth, not salvation. Mind u,Bushiri is a family man,a business man,and above all,a prophet. These are 3 different things.If u want to know how many people have given their lives to Jesus through this young Malawian’s anointing, u will be shocked.

  43. peter says:

    Major doo it!

  44. Ntaila says:

    God is indeed blessing you mwana wa pa Malawi. You did not ‘cashgate’ it like Bingu. You work each and everyday. And you have a giving hand, that’s why God loves you and will continue to. Let the govt thieves hate as they prepare for hell for their stolen tax-payer money contributed by poor Malawians
