“Cezobal comprises members of the ECG (Enlightened Christian Gathering)community and it noted with great interest that the prophets has established a sporting academy in South Africa. This cemented our belief that that the man of God (Bushiri) has a passion of developing young people and cementing Africa’s footprint on the world stage,” Chabunya told Nyasa Times in a statement.

She said they want to use the money to renovate and construct basketball courts  as well as purcharse equipmeny.

“They say  charity begins at home, and it is out humble hope that as we are getting no assistance from our duty bearers, the propjet will empower Cezobal to reach out to Malawi’s urban and rural youth that are increasingly denied fair life chances,” said Chabunya.

“The Major 1 is also Malawi’s greatest export to the world and it is our hope that our association with the Man of God’s brand will bring more youth into Gods kingdom and also lay foundation for personal growth and sporting glory that Malawi can truly be proud of,” she added.

Chabunya said they hope Bushiri –who recently funded Football Association of Malawi –  will favourably respond to their request and hep save basketball in Malawi from its “death bed.”

Roza Muroma.

What have you done to, atleast raise some funds as a start please. Basi zonsezo angokupatsani, basi? Motive yanu silibwinotu. Ndakuonani kale, ndapanga kale science yanga, asah! Ana akuBa inu, eti? Shupiti zanu.


Izi sizoona guys. What have you done to raise any funds out of the 50m? All these basketball players you mean they can’t organise something to raise some funds..and just because some worship at that church basi nde mukapemphe? This attitude is rampant here in Malawi these days and it’s a very bad players ambiri i know are educated and have good jobs can’t they contribute something toward this cause and find innovative ways to increase funds..


This obsession for handouts is killing us big time….

Big brains

So major 1 has now become our modern times treasury ? How things change ! Mwala umene amisiri omanga nyumba, anaukana…… God is really great ! He rescues the under privileged through other people. Mulungu si munthu !!

If DPP govt fails Bushiri ndi deal. Amene mumadzitama kuti ndinu a DPP mzimayi wakuwuzani kuti mukulephera kuthandiza CEZOBAL, takanani, ngati muli ndi mau.


Please don’t abuse Bushiri’s generosity.


Helen, a piece of free advice to you. Organise fund raising activities such as big walk, basketball day, golf day, etc. Stop this begging mentality.By the way Prophet Mboro is taking him to court


Chabubya just go and meet him yourself in south Africa, one to one will get that 5o mita very fast.
