Self confessed Malawi billionaire prophet, Shepherd Bushiri jetted into the country on Thursday afternoon and immediately parried away allegations he is milking his own ministry, saying to the contrary, he is the sponsor of the church.
Bushiri came through Kamuzu international airport and triumphantly walked out his private jet with a thunderous welcome from his followers.
“If the government cannot afford a presidential jet, do you think a church can afford? I have a string of businesses,” said Bushiri, a young, headline hitting, charismatic prophet.
The Man of God who is fondly called ‘Major 1’ by his followers said he has over 30 mineral mines in Africa, 27 of them gold mines, he has oil wells, a university in South Sudan and property in Dubai and will soon open an international bank and mobile service company.
The ‘Major 1’ said he had brought with him a K35 million cash chest to help Malawians affected by floods in seven districts last year.
He said apart from the charity work, he will embark on evangelism.
Bushiri attracted attention after arriving on his latest private plane reportedly a Gulf Stream III jet, which costs $37m (£25m).Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
