‘No political ambition’ Prophet Bushiri won’t stand for Malawi presidency

The famous South Africa-based Malawian prophet Shepherd Bushiri has again stressed that he has no appetite to pursue any political aspirations.

Bushiri: I 'm only interested being a servant of God

Bushiri: I ‘m only interested being a servant of God

Bushiri, currently on prophetic visit to Malawi, made it clear in northern city of Mzuzu that he has no political ambitions downplaying rumours that he may seek presidential office.

“I have no political ambitions whatsoever. My ambitions are all about being a servant of God,” said Prophet Bushiri has millions of online followers.

The Christian preacher, who has one million followers on Facebook, is part of the Enlightened Christian Gathering.

He also has his own messanger platform like Whatsapp called Bushiri Buzz.

Bushiri brought Mzuzu city to a stand still when residents learned he was in town with his  posh five-car convoy.

The preacher said he is facing politically inspired persecution because some sections suspect he is  seeking a political office like the presidency.

“Jesus was killed beacise Herod was afraid, he thought that he wanted to be king all because  of the crowd-pulling and impact of his [Jesus’s] presence.

“So it is not quite strange for me because it is in the Bible. People always link influence with politics,” said the ‘Major 1’ ECG leader.

He said Malawians should get rid of “the spirit of jealousy” if the nation is to develop.

“We should learn to support each other,” he said.

The prophet’s public relations consultant Kelvin Sulungwe also told Nyasa Times that Bushiri candidly declared that he is content with his position as church leader , entrepreneurship and does not harbour any ambitions for political office.

Bushiri said his recent visit in Malawi is to preach in rural areas.

He has been to Blantyre, Ntcheu, Mponlea and Madisi, Mzuzu, Euthini and will end his tour in lakeshore district of Nkhatabay.

Even if you wanted to join politics and stand for Presidency is there any problem? You are a Malawian citizen and very free to associate anywhere including in politics. After all anthu akuzunzika pa Malawi you are free to compete.

We are tired of the “do my prophet no harm” thing.God has given us the spirit of discernment. ..to judge the fruits of anyone who claims to be called by God(as opposed to the devil)..Anything short of preaching repentance,forgiveness of sins…but dwelling much on so called prophecies/instant miracles. ..IS NOT TRUE GOSPEL…it’s called a cult. ..it’s followers are brainwashed. ..and think a mere man has a solution to their problems.A true man of God should point people to Christ. .and does not talk any glory. ..Apostle Paul said”follow me as i follow christ”…

Give him a few years and you will see him in politics. Nothing wrong with that. He has the right. But he should not lie that he will never seek political ambition. Look at Chakwera.
