MP hails Bushiri in Malawi parliament: Prophet forced to land in Tanzania

Member of Parliament for Karonga central, Frank Mwenifumbo told the House his appreciation to Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering Church International (ECG) for  his relief support to people affected by hunger in the country.

Scramble for maize flour as Bushiri suspends humanitarian assistance

Scramble for maize flour as Bushiri suspends humanitarian assistance

Bushiri, who is based in South Africa, has been distributing maize across the country to starving villagers.

“ I want to register my thanks to Prophet Bushiri that having distributed maize across the country, from Southern Region and Central Region, he decided to come and see people in the Northern part of Malawi,” said Mwenifumbo.

Bushiri has, however, announced suspension of the charity as government operatives are frustrating his initiative and politicising the donations.

Nyasa Times understands that government blocked the ‘Major 1’ from landing in Karonga when he came recently to distribute maize. Bushiri was forced to land with his private jet in Tanzania at the Songwe border.

National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) director Nicholous Dausi was also reportedly phoning chiefs threatening them not to receive maize from Bushiri, saying he much channel his donation to government.

According to social media discussion,  Dausi phoned Chief Kyungu not to attend Bushiri maize distribution exercise but the Karonga paramount chief rebuffed him.

MP Mwenifumbo reported to parliament some of  the obstacles Bushiri faced.

Said Mwenifumbo: “What happened there, Mr Speaker, Sir, which I witnessed, was a very sad occurrence that a man of God, looking at the problem that we have, was stopped from distributing maize. He was stopped at Karonga Community Ground. He took the maize to Karonga District Hospital, nobody was there to receive the flour and that he left the country, without distributing.

“ It is rather unfortunate. I think government should consider allowing any meaningful people that have well intentions about this country to help. Prophet Bushiri is one of our own. Whilst he is helping elsewhere, he decided to come and help us.  “

Bushiri’s spokesman Kelvin Sulungwe said there is plenty of maize that Bushiri has and wants to distribute to Malawians and can only resume his aid if there is good will from government .

He said  Bushiri only spent a quarter of his  planned budget towards maize donations.

Sulungwe also said Bushiri wants to help reduce unemployment to Malawian youth, citing the Prophetic Channel and the charity aid department as some of the sectors of his church that are creating employment to young people in the country.

“The current maize donation alone has created jobs to youths that are working in the areas of situation analysis, logistics and actual distribution exercise. And because of this, more young people, including artists, are becoming part of the Major 1 family to help carrying on his mission,” said Sulungwe.

About 3 million Malawians are facing food crisis due to the drought has hit many part of Southern Africa and floods that Malawi experienced last year.

    Quite interesting! Not so? On the one hand, why does govt insist on that the aid passes through them? Afraid of the prophet’s popularity? But why the fear? Or, is it that you don’t to be seen as failures when individual personnel can afford to assist, so you want to be seen doing something? At least the govt’s relevance is at risk when the prophet is distributing while the govt has nothung to distribute! Or is it because you know that the moment the aid is not channeled through you then it means less allowances, not to mention less resources to cash-gate from?

    On the other hand, why is the prophet insisting on personally distributing the items? Why not do as others have done (either thru govt, WFP or some NGO)? You still want to be identified with the assistance, not so? What is it then? You really are prepared to let people starve and die simply because govt feels you shouldn’t directly give relief? What are you exactly up to? For you, as long as govt doesn’t want people to know that the maize they are eating is coming from you, you will see to it that the hungry starve and die? Really!

  2. Gonto says:

    Dausi, you days are numbered.Shame, I think you are practicing old politics.You better change,If you don’t change, the winds of change will change you! If you are fighting with Bushiri and Bushiri is mouth piece of God and carries his word,and word is God, therefore you are fighting with God.And God is who created you! Can you win??? Quad errand demonstratum (QED)

  3. Kaluluma says:

    Nkhani yake ndiyoti munthu wa Mulungu akazeretsa kumeneko wina afuna atomeponso!! Faith based organisations are the ones saving people today because several people in power today are not ready and willing to serve the people but their own selfish gains. Zoona chingakhale chifukwa choletsara munthu kuthandiza abale ake amalawi? Nsanje bwanji amalawi inu osaopa Mulungu!! Mipingo yochuluka ikuthandiza mudziko muno osadzerankomwe kuboma. Mwana wang’ono uyu woti sisayizi yanu, mwana wobereka nokhayu wosalakwa mukulimbana naye chani?

  4. Joe says:

    What is wrong with this man of God helping the needy people ? Why stop him now and not the time he started ? Dausi, what is wrong with you ? Do not connect hunger with politics . People don’t feed on politics but MAIZE which Bushiri is distributing to his kinsmen. If God has sent Bushiri to feed His people, who are you to oppose ?

  5. Bob Chiswe says:

    There can be no progress in intelligence services in Malawi if imbeciles like dausi are still allowed to play a leading role.

  6. One Day 2 Come says:

    I think so called gvnt officials hate Bushiri cos Bushiri z sharing his charity direct to the needy without passing through these stupid called leaders ! It’s a syndrome in gvnt that when gvnt receives donations they share 3/4 b4 they give to the poor! Now there’s no this chance with Bushiri charity! Bushiri shares directly to the poorer to make sure ppo hv assisted! Who don’t know about Malawi gvnt n its stupid leaders!

  7. DZINA LANGA says:

    Bushiri! Bushiri! Bushiri! Ine ndinali mdani wa Bushiri number one. Koma nkhani izizi zikundipangitsa ndizimusapotera.

  18. Good move by the government,this guy called Bushiri is just after fame

  19. mganda says:

    he bypassed protocols.

      1. Kenkk says:

        Mganda and others, indeed what protocols? You stupid dpp bootlicker. You didn’t see the protocols when he was distributing maize in the south and central regions until when he started in the north?

        You wanted bushiri not to touch the north so that northerners should hate him, agalu inu a dpp. You wanted bushiri to bribe first the president and his thuggish dpp cohorts, then he would be okay to distribute maize in the country.

        The eyes of the suffering and dying Malawians are upon you heartless dogs.

        He has the right to spend his wealth on anyone he wishes to spend on without following any protocols. He is a Malawian and can feed any Malawian without first seeking permission. Permission for what?

  20. Ndagomandidziko says:

    I can’t believe this can happen at a time such as this when the whole country is suffering. Pathetic and evil

  21. Vinjeru says:

    This only tells you the caliber of leaders we have in Malawi. They are all selfish. They DONT HAVE INTEREST OF PEOPLE AT THEIR HEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    gawa chimanga boy, dyetsa ma future voters ndipo ma wailers ako tilipo. usatutumuke chili chonse

  26. Chambe says:

    Really or it’s just attention seeking?
    Don’t worry, help where you rip. The poor South Africans are also starving in some parts of the country.

  27. syanda nkanyis ngcobo says:

    I need success in my life

  28. cbk says:

    Shame on you guys!!!!!!how can you brocke someone not to distribute maize?Do you love your pole?Stupid politics!!!!!!Chilichonse ndale!!Munakhala bwanji?u advisor ndi umeneo??

  29. Kenkkk says:

    Now you can understand why bushiri wants an assurance direct from Peter that his efforts will not be hindered if he is to resume helping the suffering masses. Why force him to use a Tanzanian airport? Really? Stupid cabinet meetings to stop bushiri, really and for what?

    Jealousies and selfishness of these dpp thugs. You are happy for people to be dying of hunger. Well done mwenefumbo for praising bushiri, soldier also praised bushiri but look at the evil faces of dpp, not even a single minister has uttered a word to praise the work of bushiri. Not even Peter. Bushiri is doing the Chinese way, doing it himself rather than see his millions stolen by you dpp thugs craving for his attention.

    Just because he is richer than any of you dpp thugs, just because he has three private jets and you have zero, ndiye ikale nkhani ya nsanje basi.

    For you dpp thugs dying Malawians mean nothing but your pockets and power are more important than people. Shame. This is worse than old mcp atrocities. Dausi again but sent by Peter and/ or his so called advisors. Next time when the north says they want to share the lake with Tanzania, what are you going to say? You have already forced bushiri to go to Tanzania. Really stupid people you are.

    Infant kamuzu tried very hard to ensure that every Malawian hard food. Kamuzu would have locked up all these Admarc dpp staff thugs troubling and depriving people of food.

  30. Funzo says:

    The Government’s action, if true, beggars belief.

  31. kambuwi says:

    stupid dpp

  32. Zovuta Kumvetsa says:

    It seems the problem with some leaders is that they take more pride in begging from overseas countries like USA, UK, China than encouraging self reliance through engaging with our own sons and daughters of Malawi. What a shame! No wonder we find ourselves dancing to alien tunes of homosexuality. Shame, Shame, and SHAME!!!

  33. kambuwi says:

    DPP. dengerous peoples party.

  34. Kennie says:

    A Major1 anagawa chimanga mzigawo za kummwera ndi pakati kunali ziiii, pano akufuna kugawa chigawo cha kummpoto nde aboma mukulesa anthu kulandira chimanga, kulesa abusawa a Prophet Bushiri kutera pa Karonga mpaka kukatera ku Tanzania zoona amalawi tizikhala choncho?
    A Dausi muliwazereza lekani mukwiba mino ya zovu ku nyika.
    (wanthu wakufwa na njala mbwe mukuwakanizga kupoka ovwili, am very sorry this leadership)

  35. Chosna Mantu says:

    Please, Dausi allow Prophet Bushiri to help the needy Malawians who spend nights at Admarc only to be told there is no maize.For how long shall you be cruel to the very own people you are supposed to work for. You killed during MYP days and today you want genocide both to people and the elephants at Nyika. Old habits die hard eh? Repent and do things right, by the way as a Christian be reminded that Jesus is coming soon, what will you be doing when he comes? Killing elephants for ivory or preventing people of good meaning from assisting the hungry? You reap what you sow mind you! The Prophet is a Man of God we cant have everyone be a politician to help read your bible Mr. Dausi.

  36. herbs says:

    can’t believe that dausi really dd ths if he did ” blood of the nnedy in ur hands”

  37. sandram says:

    I see a man of God well helpful and wonder why APM government blocking this opportunity to we needy citizens.
    Its shame to this government that speaks things that are not true, who doesn’t know that people are dying in the rural areas because of hunger? And them saying coolly to the nation there is no hunger in Malawi.
    I request man of God to keep on helping us, we villagers are really in panic situation of hunger.
    Peter as you are the president of this nation, go to Kafere, Kunjawa, Kude, Kampambanya, Mantega, Mkuwa, Dambo and many more villages in Dedza, you will never talk this nosense, you will feel shame of yourself with all these lies that you feed us with.
    Dausi, with democracy as freedom of our nation, I wonder how Peter told you to call chief not to welcome this man of God, this is why our nation has no love in politics that spreads into villagers who never even know whose the leader of their own Malawi. Be wise old man, this uncivilized life of yours, should belong to you and Peter families.
    Cant you take examples to other nations? You dont even listen to us when we come to your gate for help and don’t give that stupid attitude to other people who can will to help Malawi citizens. You are stopping Bushiri to help us because he knows your government system, if he could be a foriegner, hopefully you could welcome him for portions.
    Why are you imprisoning your own citizens with nothing wrong be done to them?

  38. Denesio Bisika says:

    Nicholas Dausi pls watch what u r trying to do Next time u ll be out in ur position when MCP took over u ll be asking help pls give me his number I want to stop him frm calling chiefs not to rebcieve maize from Bushiri

  39. ababa& says:

    Malawi needs aid. Bushiri is bringing in aid in the form of food and he is not welcome. Interesting.

    But where is he getting the food from just curious.

  40. Charity. says:

    Thats in human mr dausi,thats what we co murder!how can u stop someone who is tryn to feed malawians! shame on u sir!

  41. The Analyst says:

    “Power is always dangerous. It attracts the worst and corrupts the best.” – Ragnar Lothbrok (The Vikings)

    Looking at APM and his VP in the election period, one could see one of the best combinations. But little did we know, what power would do to them.
    You see, power has so much corrupted the country’s leadership that the only thing that matters to them is power (the very agent that corrupts).
    They are forgerting, however, that . . .
    . . . Life itself (be it of a prisoner or commoner in the village) is much more important than power . . .
    . . . that Its only when you are at peace with others first, that you can be at peace with yourself . . .
    . . . that the best way to cultivate your happiness is by making others happy . . .

    Sadly, the country’s leadership has failed to do or just demonstrate any of the above. Indeed . . .”Chosadziwa, adaimbira mfiti mmanja” – Mkasa (Mphuno salota)
    As if this is not enough, the leadership has been surrounded by the worst – vulturous, suspicious hence untrustworthy faces like Dausi, Mwanamveka, Chaponda, Malopa, Ntaba, Chiyembekeza e.t.c

    . . . As a group, these people are so greedy and cunning that if money comes in the country, only 10% reaches the beneficiary, if at all.
    . . . As individuals, these people perceive their individual selves as being the most powerful or smartest hence preoccupy selves with playing the game of thrones – who-lives-who-dies and who-gets-what-and-how-much; at the expense of coming up with policies that can move the country forward.

    Now due to their less-usefulness, the country is in chaos and instead of supporting those who are willing to help, you have the hair on your balls to intimidate and frustrate them? Mhhhhh, “A hungry man is an angry man.” – English Proverb. This; you should know!

  42. wilfred says:

    Malawians, if he doesn’t help he is bad but when he does he is a threat to someone’s post. Don’t you get it mr President, he has no intention of running for president, he is a man of God. Let him do as the spirit of God tells him. Maybe you don’t know, he has been instructed by the Holy Spirit to clear his account and give to the needy, so if you are depriving the poor Malawians then other countries will be happy to receive. He is not doing this only in Malawi, so please Mr President it is not you who go to bed on empty stomach, let the needy get what has been prepared for them. You are an honorable man so do the right thing. Major1 is a Malawian so he has the right to land on any Malawian airport, I know you are a little jealous and I understand that, considering that you have to hire one every time you wanna go abroad but I can promise you that if you are to come to your sense he might lend you one hopefully for nothing, I know Papa is a kind man.

  49. Parallel Market says:


    Why blocking someone who wants to give food to the needy? Why? Why? This is a shameful act by our leaders. Is Prophet Bushiri a threat to your political careers? Why do we shun him as if he is not a malawian, why? Lets support him. He is our own. If we disown him many countries will welcome him in their countries. Lets encourage him to invest in Malawi. Give him land to build his international conference centre, etc.

    i welcome you to Malawi Prophet Bushiri. This is your home. Forgive everybody in Malawi who hated you. Continue ministering to malawians in every faculty of their being.

    The same Dausi was close to Kamuzu and we know how Kamuzu dealt with dissent! Now Dausi is close to APM, he is the Dpp Intelligncy Director, not NIB director. Its a pity that Intelligency agents are being used for partisan interests while being paid by taxpayers money!
