Naked Thoughts: Of Bushiri’s  JB connection, perceived presidential aspirations in Malawi

Talks continue. Intellectuals refuse to remain put and words have been voiced out. The only task that remains is differentiating facts from opinions. Once again, just like anyone else, I refuse to remain quiet, burying my own opinion while being a consumer of irrationally baked propaganda seasoned with falsehood.

Prophet Bushiri

Prophet Bushiri

Rumours have made rounds. Others believed them and others trashed them, but what’s the reflection of truth on the issue of Prophet Shepherd Bushiri being an elite of Joyce Banda?

For starters, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is married to Prophetess Mary Bushiri who previously answered to the surname of Zgambo before the young and billionaire prophet claimed her heart to make her a “Mrs Bushiri” in a colourful ceremony at Mzuzu Stadium in 2011.

Just after three years of the prophetic wedding, Mary Bushiri’s older brother David Zgambo found a place in the heart of Joyce Banda’s daughter, Kambe Banda, the rest can be calculated.

The marriage scenarios stand out to define the relationship  that thinly exist between Prophet Bushiri and Joyce Banda. Despite the marriage link, Joyce Banda still looks up to Bushiri as a spiritual figure and answers to his prophetic voice when he speaks as evidenced from the visit she made to Pretoria ECG in 2016 where she also gave a brief speech, explaining her gratitude to God for Prophet Bushiri.

The connection between the two revolves around the explained scenarios and does not go beyond that.

Unfortunately, rumours have been created out of it with most middle politicians linking the youthful prophet to a presidential bid despite his continued refusal to contest on what is deemed as “a hot seat”. Bushiri has always made it clear to all that bidding for presidency is a total demotion to his prophetic calling.

It is evident from Joyce Banda’s actions that she still eyes the presidential seat and it’s a naked fact to bet her come back in 2019. With that in mind, what would strengthen her heart to promote a political personality of a man of God, who has his efforts lining towards serving God as a prophet alone?

The puzzle doesn’t need a genius to break. It’s straight forward and easy to dismantle. Joyce Banda stands independently as a politician, just the same way Bushiri stands independently as a clergy man. Associating the two to a political power bid is simply an unfortunate case that some quarters with other interests to protect have advanced. Luckily, the picture is clear to all rational minds.

In his Open Letter to President Peter Mutharika, Bushiri reiterated his lack of political intentions, but simply wants to help Malawians as any responsible and abled citizen could.

Talking of the Open Letter, I read a very well trained writer arguing that the letter never contained any biblical verse, apparently disqualifying it as fit to have come from the man of God.

As Malawians, we have bigger problems to deal with, from mental paradigm and the hunger at hand. The letter delivered its intended purpose without any verse. As I understand, it was simply issued to address the problems on the ground and not necessarily to preach to our dearest president. Some of these arguments that learned writers have started putting up do not even make sense and simply embarrasses one’s reasoning.

Perhaps, need I remind you that communication is communication, whether with or without verses. It would be acceptable to say his preaching lack verses, not a mare letter discussing problems on the ground to the head of state and the general public that consists of people from different beliefs.

    MALAWIANS WASTING TIME WITH USELESS NSANJE. INSTEAD OF THANKING MAN OF GOD BUSHIRI ARE BUSY FRUSTRATING HIS EFFORTS

  5. bentry smart says:

    I indeed agree with your reasoning and facts presentation.

    What was the purpose of this article? Really, I see nothing wrong with anything.They just want to let other people start commenting bad things against the Man of God.Please, I am asking you to find something to write and not think of talking things you know can not even help you.People now are starting to understand him ( the prophet) better than before.

  8. Chimbizya says:

    Kelven, thank you for clear observation. But let met add that the spies and government would be much happy if the Prophet started distributing maize in Thyolo, Mulanje, phalombe and chiradzulu where dpp gurus come from he would be heavely supported by government. It was a mistake (i mean dpp’s opinion) to distribute in Zomba and then Karonga both districts linked to JB hence the fear. Kkkk poor dpp why!

  9. 2016 welcome says:

    This article is meant to be an official communication unfortunately this Silungwe guy wants to present the issues with a high tinge of flowery English.

  10. Big Dance says:

    Kelvin writes “communication is communication whether with or without verses”. I bet if Kelvin was asked about the WhatsApp coup plot of Jessie et al, he will say, “communication is communication, whether on WhatsApp or sms or otherwise” Making the actions of Jessie and her fellow stupid fools treasonous, which is a right judgement indeed.

    What was the purpose of this article?

  12. Gladson says:

    Comment #7 “Bonkii”, have you noticed that you have just made the same mistake that you were geared to correct? Sometimes we should be sobber minded when trying to correct the mistakes our friends make. Near the end of your comment you have written, “… that our journalist have …. ” Interesting! Are you any better then? I leave this to you to make an honest judgement.

    Only those who respects the art of writing can understand this great peace of writing. We Malawians are just fond of critising and jealousy. Well put Kelvin. Thumbs up.

  15. patriotic says:

  16. Chambe says:

    Some of us suspected that the money Bushiri is using is part of the cashgate loot by JB. This article just confirms the suspicions as “ahaa!”
    Bushiri is a link to JB.

    1. Mr R K says:

      If You Have Concrate Evedenc, That The Money Man Of God Is Using For Helping People Is Part Of Cashgate You Can Arrest Him For You To Know The Truth. A Prophet Is Without Hounor Except At Hom.

    Ihave to say that I am not a very religeous person. I’m not an extremist and not even a fan of the present day prophets, bushiri inclusive. All the same, I consider Kevin’s article well thought and an excellent piece of work. If bushiri just wants to bail out poor and hungry Malawians without a hidden agenda, that’s good and commendable. On the other hand if the prophet has a hidden agenda of the presidency ‘ine nilibe pulobulem’. This is a free Malawi. Why are some people, especially politicians scared? If bushiri wants the highest office then he should go for it. Should heads roll at the end of the day ‘shauri yawo’. At thee end of the day the best shall prevail, if it is bushiri then let it be so. OOn a lighter note, Kevin please polish up on language I.e. the use of the letter ‘s’ on verbs. E.g. …head of state and general public consist NOT consists. ..Arguments embarrass NOT embarrasses. I have noted this is a general problem that our journalist have whether print, radio or TV. What’s wrong with the way English is taught in primary and secondary schools? Obviously this is not a problem of tertiary education.

      First remove the log in your eye then you shall clearly see and ably correct others . . .
      There are many errors in this very short comment of yours, yet you boast about having a strong command of the English language? Ha! Laughable!

      Spellings
      . . . In your first sentence, you should have written “religious” not “religeous.”

      Punctuation marks
      . . . In your second sentence, you should have written “present-day prophets” i.e. with a hyphen (-) not “present day prophets”

      Subject-verb agreement
      . . . In your last but one sentence, you should have written ” . . . our journalist has or our journalists have” not “our journalist have.”

      Let us not expose other people’s weaknesses in a manner that exposes our own. If we want to correct others, let’s first make sure that our own language skill is above average.

      Most importantly, the ultimate objective of language, is communication. Thus, even if a sentence has grammatical errors, so long as the message is clear; there is no cause for worry, unless it’s an academic paper.

    Dont worry Keivin these people are malawians and see they can even give you avoidable stress. Dont mind them plz. We love our man of GOD. They are used to poverty

  27. mmalawi says:

    Slung we. I admire your language command. You are a terrific writer. May God be glorified for giving you such gift. But Munthu Wa Mulungu mukufuna kutiuza chani. The letter was not from man of God? But why has he stopped the stewardship act. God gave him money to save hunger affected Malawians . Kapena zatsala?

  28. Who cares says:

    I just lost my interest after reading the first three sentences and that’s the missed seconds in Malawi I will never get back!!!
    Useless, pointless, waste of space!!!!! Total rubbish… Written by Bushiri’s mouthpiece Kelvin…..

  29. yakumbuyo says:

    Before you talk too much,How old is Bushiri to stand as candidate for the hot seat?

  30. pondani says:

    Chakula a Malawi nsanje, munthu asatukuke basi walakwa asauke kumene walakwanso. Anyway, let God be God. Major 1, we are with you always and u shall never walk alone. There are many rich people out there, who sacrificed his or her money to feed the poor? Tapitani mmidzimu mukaone banja la ana 6 with parents making 8 akupita ku chigayo ndi kachimanga ka mu basin. Nde wina akati athandize basi mukumpezera zifukwa? Inunso thandizani anthu adzidya. I dont think any president can do such a thing….. ndi ma politicians omwe analowera kudyelera not kuthandiza anthu omwe akupanga these things.
