Prophet Bushiri drags businessman to court over K130mil debt: Wants garnishee order to Indebank, Nedbank accounts

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) has dragged a Lilongwe based businessman Timothy Phiri to court for his failure to pay him back a debt amounting to K130 million.

Major 1 Bushiri : Wants : Wants garnishee order to Indebank, Nedbank accounts

Major 1 Bushiri : Wants : Wants garnishee order to Indebank, Nedbank accounts

According to the writ of court summons which Nyasa Times has seen, Bushiri has given Phiri 14 days after the service of the summons to acknowledge whether he intend to contest in court.

First defendant is Timothy Phiri, second defendant is Inde Bank Limited, and third defendant is Ned Bank Limited.

Affidavits which Nyasa Times has seen indicate that Bushiri gave Phiri K130 million debt in August in agreement whereby the businesmsan was supposed to pay back the whole amount.

According to the affidavits, Phiri is abusing and misusing the funds and is unwilling and refusing to pay back the money.

Phiri operates current account with Inde Bank. He also operates another current account with Nedbank, Mzuzu branch.

It is alleged that Phiri has acquired different vehicles using the man of God’s money.

Some of the vehicles include; Truck Registration number MJ 6863, Toyota Fortuner DZ 9009, VW Golf Registration number DZ 4960, Toyota Prado Registration number DZ 5201, Nissan Note Registration number DZ 2218, Nissan Note, unregistered, and Will Cyph Registration number DZ 3540.

Bushiri is being represented by  Jivason and Company.

When agents of Bushiri have been requesting Phiri to pay back, he has always been saying: “I did not get any money for my business from any person, I do not owe any person any money,”

Bushiri is therefore asking the court to provide a mandatory order compelling the banks to release the money in the said bank accounts to court to be forwarded to him plus costs of the action.

  1. The Truth says:

    Koma ma bodza enawa, Bushiri iwe ungakongoze munthu K130m. Musatinamizepo apa. Paja mumazitama kuti ndinu olemera koma chonsencho ku Malawi kuno munasiyanso ngongole zambiri mbiri, anthu anu a ntchito simumawalipira, amakhalira kupemphesa. And why were you lending money to this money instead of giving it for Charity Work, apa ndiye zawonekeratu kuti nzakumidima

  2. redeemed says:

    My late grany, may her soul rest in peace, taught me that, when one borrows with no intention to pay back, he or she is just as good as a thief. It disheartens me that a lot of people abuse the generosity of their rescuers and ruin the chances of those who genuinely seek help to receive it.
    The holly Bible teaches us that a wicked man borrows and never repay while the righteous keep lending.
    To those who are reluctant to repay their debt please note, your debtors didn’t lend you their hard earned income by virtual of having nothing to do with it, but they chose to put their needs on hold to help you, therefore the least you can do is to return the favour by settling your debt, else you will always have a need to borrow. Remember, a man is a master of his own fate.(shake Spear)

    Bushiri is a business man, he sells a non existent and fictitious product called god, this product is so successful because the people willing to buy it have already been brainwashed by their parents during childhood. The god product has a huge prophet margin because it does not require lot of inputs, it’s tax free and has no guarantees. It’s success rate is as good as chance.

    Timothy Phiri represents a crop of crooked businessmen who obtain money through false pretence. In the case he hoodwinked the man of God abusing the trust the man of God had in him. Others who may need a financial push from the generous man of God will not be given the opportunity because of such despicable behaviour. How can you be flaunting stolen wealth.

    don’t comment if you don’t feel like commenting, just by lending him such amount of money clearly shows that A Man God has got a heart of helping people. A LOAN is A LOAN, Just pay back the money so that othe

    Is he not a man of God? He should just forgive this Tommy Phiri and move on. For a man of God, money should not be important. He should consider the loan to be charity

  31. Namarokoro says:

    Does the money belong to Bushiri or ECG? You should be very carefully when reporting here one day you will put this pastor of yours in trouble with revenue services in South Africa. If you claim that the money belongs to Bushiri, does Bushiri pay tax for that money? Is it Bushiri taking Phiri to court or is it ECG taking Phiri to court?

  33. Sapitwa says:

    Easy come easy go! Prophets should not resort to courts to recover debts. They get free money and should always write-off debts after they make wrong decisions of lending money to bad people. The moment they start resorting to courts for recovery of debts, just know that this is the beginning of the end. Debts are sources of evil and am sure the prophet hates Phiri hence failure to forgive him and write off and move on; shame!

    Man of God, can you lend me $300,000 and my security is a coal mine with 20m reserve. Ask Nyasatimes for contact details

  47. mphwache wa bingu says:

    I think there is no case here. And this guy will not pay back the money. Bushiri is not a bank and has no legal mandate to lend money to anybody. If you did so you were doing so at your own risk. Money lending institutions are registered by the reserve bank of Malawi. That’s why katapila and village banks are illegal.

    I also doubt if Bushiri indeed gave this guy all this amount of money and expected to pay back just after a year. Just is just a way Bushiri wants to steal from this man.

    paliponse pali ndalama amayandikilapo ndikuombapo heavy.
    mmangitseni atengelepo phunzilo.

  52. Mugonapamhanya says:

    The story is not adding up. The story says that Phiri borrowed money from this so called prophet which he is failing to pay back. How can it be alleged that Phiri is abusing the money that is his own? Kalipo kalipo kakumidima. Prophet chasing profit. Munthu wa Mulungu katapila.

  53. levelheaded says:

    Helping a Malawian is just a wastage of money and time. You lend interest free money to somebody and later he thinks of not returning the money because he thinks you are already rich and doesn’t deserve being paid back. I have tried this to even my so called close friends only to leave me in tears at the end.

    My advice to my fellow rich people,don’t you dare think of helping somebody without a collateral. If you want to please God you would better venture into charity work which pleases God most. Palibe angakutembelere chifukwa choti wamukaniza ngongole,infact kulibenso something like wina kukutembelera.Akafuna ngongole adzipita Ku Bank. I repeat, Go charity, God rewards abundantly.
