Bushiri made the revelations on his official Facebook page when he posted about the new development.

“I had a very delightful time over the weekend at my Academy as I witnessed young people showcasing their talents. It has always been my sincere wish to give the best resources to young people as they discover their God’s given talents. My excitement was also pre-eminent with the presence of my spiritual Father, Prophet Uebert Angel who also has great love for talent.

“Through the new Academy Manager, Coach Francis from Norway, I believe the youngsters are in experienced and good hands. My prayers are with them as they sharpen their skills for more bound rewarding careers in Europe,” he posted.

Bushiri recently launched the academy of sports in South Africa amid cries by Malawians who felt the young preacher would have prioritised his home Malawi.

However,  in a quick phone interview with Nyasa Times, Bushiri explained that he already does a lot for Malawi.

“I do not know what you mean when you mean by saying I should have done more for Malawi Sports when I just recently helped the Flames with millions for the Afcon and World Cup games. Let me also say I do not regret having this academy in South Africa because South African people have been very supportive to my projects unlike Malawians who always try hard to find faults in everything I do. The is the least I can do to people and nation of South Africa,” he said.

“I have love for Malawi football. I have even spoken to the Minister of Sports a couple of times pledging my support to the Malawi National Team, only that offer is not being fully utilised. As it stands, we might mock and insult the national team for continued losses, but truth of the matter is, the Flames is poorly funded and nothing good can come of a broke team,” he added.

Bushiri launched the academy early this year and have so far managed to export talent to Europe and Brazil.

He has the right to invest wherever he likes, ndi ndalama zake! ku Malawi too much ndale zopanda pake that’s why we are heading nowhere. 51 Years tilibe choloza chenicheni,njala bwana! ndithandizeni order of the day!


Moses, that’s the the question. Let’s us wise up. Let’s open our eyes.

Generation of vipers

Bushiri, just wait until the two districts in the southern Malawi become a sovereign state then you can come to invest in the new Malawi


This man is a genius. He has managed to use the word of GOd to push for development


Firstly, we should ask, were does his get his cash. Kumayamikila if you know his money is clean or not, osati basi kumangoyankhula.


This is totally irrelevant man…


In my opinion. His ministry has millions of followers and well wishers most of whom are well to do and generous. they believe in tithing and monthly pledges. you may also wish to know he (Major 1) has numerous Income generating activities. It will be unwise to question his source of income now.


Olo ndili ine. He has been criticised all along, calling him names so the SA people including their leadership welcomed him with warm hands, so what do you think he can do. Even if he build a world class facility, DPP will find fault in him and will destroy it. Always dziko la malawi no wonder tidakali osaukisitsa cos we politicise everything. Wina akatukuka, basi akumpezela zifukwa even connecting him kuti amapha anthu and yet omwe amapha anthu akuwadziwa. Go on Major, we love you!!!

I do not blame Prophet Bushiri for investing in South African youth because aside from being a man of God, he is also a businessman.After all, South Africa respects him and the leaders there have no problem with his church and business activities. I think Bushiri feels unsafe to invest in Malawi due to political interference.There is too much barbarism, jealousy, and paranoia in the DPP government. Prophet Bushiri’s maize distribution to the suffering masses bears testimony to that. In spite of this, I personally request the Prophet to establish a world-class academy either in Mzuzu or Lilongwe because this… Read more »
