Prophet Bushiri complaints of media blackmail: Rejects ‘Mutharika worships Satan’ report

Enlightened Christian Gathering leader Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has sent a formal complaint to Malawi media bodies after he has of late been subject to on-line media attacks.

Bushiri has claimed he has refused to be stampeded by some reporters who have been demanding money from the Man of God after being appointed AFRICCI president.

Prophet Bushiri: Cliams blackmail

Recently, one of Malawi’s online platforms reported that Bushiri had preached in his church that “Malawi was sold to the devil and that [President] Peter Mutharika worships Satan.”

When contacted to comment on the matters, Prophet Bushiri’s public relations officer Kelvin Sulugwe told Nyasa Times that the Man of God’s sermon did not attack the Head of State and that the report had sensationalised the context of his message.

Bushiri claims one of the online news website is trying to blackmail him into giving out money to stop them from writing bad articles and that he has since reported the matter to media watchdog, Misa-Malawi.

“I must say that it is so unfortunate how some overzealous media platforms have resorted to blackmail the prophet into giving them money to stop attacks. We have the messages that one of the people owning a news website sent to the prophet and to me asking for money and threatened to use his platform to destroy the prophet’s image and he has vowed to do this until God knows when,” said Silungwe.

“All I can say is that the prophet is not shaken as these attacks haven’t started today. He has been subject to media attacks for years now and despite that, he continues to rise and transform lives. Its so unfortunate that these false stories end up confusing people who are weak in faith and being a spiritual battle, God fights for the prophet,” explained Sulugwe.

However, Sulugwe declined to give a specific name of the individuals who have been trying to dupe the man of God, saying such information will be shared with the media watchdog.

“I don’t think it matters if I stand here and mention their names because that is exactly what they are expecting to attack the man of God further. I employ you to take time and look at the recent stories attacking the prophet you will notice a greedy touch in the articles that have no basis in what so ever and they can’t even outline facts in a good order,” explained Sulugwe.

He continued: “Prophet Bushiri prays for them and he is praying for Malawi. He knows what he is and who he is. Never has he stood up in church attacking government or the president as reported by one of the papers .

“And talking of Bushiri’s appointment as AFRICCI’s president, we leave that to Malawians to see what will transpire as time goes. I can’t stand here justifying this appointment to people who have made up their mind not to see the truth and that’s not my entitlement as AFRICCI has its spokesperson.”

Bushiri was appointed president of African Christian Coalition for Israel Ltd, a newly launched Christian development charity organization that intends to give development grants to African Governments through its partners.

On Friday this week, Bushiri is expected to present a cheque to South African government.

    Is there hard evidence like a recording of what he said? If yes, bring it out & he should be prosecuted. And his “prophetness” is questionable. If no, then palibepo nkhani apa,,, just image-tarnishing.

  12. Whether you believe it or not, the truth is the God of Bushiri is a true God, the creator of heaven and earth. If you dont believe you must ask its your problem. Some of us have seen this God working thru him.

    No mutter how you try to damage his image you won’t manage. His a blessing to the nation and has saved so many souls, so of you fight him you might be ready to fight God, coz his the one that always fights his bottles. No wonder you will always be failures coz you always course yourselves by fighting an innocent Man of God. A Powerful Prophet for that matter.

Seriosly, 42 trilion kwachas just like that? where are in the world these funds coming from? African please wake up. Even the most richest countries in the world have never given such an obscene amount to frica before. Watch out 666.


    Man of God complaining yet at the same time he says God is fighting for him, so why complaining. All false prophets will be known very soon, time is running out. They now know that they are being exposed that is why they are teaming up to defend themself but they can not fight the truth. Wait and see. May the Almighty God punish them because they are misleading many innocent people who blindly follow them. AMEN.

    Bushiri you have check your mouth when it comes the time for you to fight the Malawi government. You are not holly than T.B. Joshua. But the government of Nigeria taught him a lesson. Did you see what happened to TB’s hotel.

  35. elder sage2 says:

    What is this AFRICCI anyway? Malawians are so gullible they just believe any silly thing. Am starting to suspect Nyasatimes is in this Bushiri league. Why do you keep giving space to this trickster masquerading as man of God? …or is it man of god?

  36. Abiti Mangarita says:

    MOG, nanga cheque cha Malawi chili kuti? they say charity begins at home, thandizani kaye ana amasiye ali mbwee M’malawi munowa. Ambuye akudalitseni pamene mukuganiza zothandiza anawa.

  37. Danga Lapezeka says:

    WHY CRY FOR PUBLICITY? “Dzuwa salozerana !aliyense amliona yekha” likewise if he is worth what he claims to be he doesn’t need reporters.What is hiis motive?Zobera anthu poopseza ndi Bible basi! Otherwise Hell fire is waiting for you infidels.God will not just let you pass through imposters,Sons of the devil the condenmed.

  38. Zosautsa says:

    This is a simple case to verify whether the so called prophet said it or not. I guess his preachings are recorded, if not then endeavour to contact any people who were present on that day and conclude your story. Otherwise it will be regarded as hearsay and indeed blackmail.
