Bushiri takes maize donation to Lilongwe: Prophet spends K85mil in Malawi charity

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) on Friday took his charity initiative under ‘Prophetic Channel Aid’  to Nathenje in Lilongwe for a donation of maize to 3,000 households but also gave cash handouts to other 3,000 households who could not get the staple.

South Africa-based Bushiri who started his a maize donation in Zomba, said he will continue to help Malawi in his global humanitarian and philanthropic activities, stressing ‘charity begins at home’.

“I had come here to make maize donation to about 3 000 households but am overwhelmed by the crowds. Over 3,000 households who have failed to get the bag of maize will receive cash to be able to buy rice,” said Bushiri to  cheering crowds.

Bushiri’s team of “evangelists” from Prophetic TV were seen distributing the money to those who failed to get the maize.

The spokesman of the Prophet, Kelvin Sulungwe told Nyasa Times that the ‘Major 1’  pumped about K85 million in the exercise.

About 2.8 million people are grappling hunger in Malawi due to poor harvest caused by the El nino weather pattern.

Floods and drought have hit the country’s staple maize crop resulting to poor harvest in the region.

Malawi is said to be the hardest hit country affected by the prolonged dry spells in southern Africa further revealing the country’s inability to tackle food shortages, according to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).

Bushiri said it is the responsibility of every Malawian to help the people facing hunger in the country, saying the government alone cannot reach out to them.

“As Prophet Bushiri, I understand the responsibilities of the citizen,’ he said.

The Major 1 added: ‘As Malawians, we are supposed to work with the government of the day to help the needy. I, being a religious and Christian leader, I am an example to my community and what I am doing here is what I preach in the church.

‘This should serve as a message to everyone that let us do this work, let us help the needy and those who are suffering,” he said.

Bushiri, who was also previously involved in similar charity works last month, said he will return in the country soon to help flood victims in Karonga.

my response to NotIdiot, why was it necessary for Jesus to feed the 5000 multitude attending his sermons, likewise in the same fashion or christ like manner Bushiri is simply exercising one of his Godly given obligations as man of God…

I like the strategy he undertook helping the other regions first. Otherwise I smell a rat if he could help the northeners first

I have gone thru all the comments and I must say that I have seen a shift from being negative to being positive and may God bless you Malawians for supporting and encouraging papa.
