Prophet Bushiri pens Mutharika strong worded letter: I’m facing obstacles in my maize donations

Malawian famous Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering Church International (ECG) has written an open letter to President Peter Mutharika  expressing concern over the technical ban government has given his relief support to people affected by hunger in the country.

Major 1 Bushiri :Pens Mutharika

Bushiri, who is based in South Africa, has been distributing maize across the country to starving villagers.

He has, however, announced suspension of the charity as government operatives are frustrating his initiative and politicising the donations.

The ‘Major 1’ said  in a strong worded open letter to Mutharika he has lately been facing “obstacles” from people “protecting President Peter Mutharika’s political interests”.

The letter posted on Bushiri’s Facebook page,  the  wealthy prophet said the President’s royalists believe he [Bushiri] is harbouring presidential ambitions and that his popularity can affect Mutharika’s chances of retaining his seat in the 2019 elections, hence their decision to frustrate his efforts.

“Your Excellency, I will resume my aid when you personally assure me that I have your support towards my efforts in salvaging the suffering citizenry of our great nation. I have only spent a quarter of my planned budget towards maize donations, but with regret, I have suspended the project,” Bushiri said.

“I have said it time and again that I have no intentions of joining politics now or in the near future. I am a man of God with a prophetic anointing and I am very contented with that. Treating me as a threat is a big mistake that your machinery is making.”

Bushiri admitted in the letter that the suspension  of the maize and cash handouts will neither affect him nor Mutharika, but the people who are suffering, adding that “If you [Mutharika] have their affairs at heart, then you will publicly support my efforts to help them.”

He further claimed that most chiefs have been afraid to cooperate with him “because they are scared of your [Mutharika’s] machinery which has waged war under a mission of bringing down my humanitarian efforts.”

The Man of God pointed out that that President Mutharika could not be aware of the bottlenecks he is facing in donating the maize.

Presidential Press Secretary Gerald Viola said President Mutharika has not received any communication from Bushiri.

He however persuaded Bushiri to “engage the President.

About 3 million Malawians are facing food crisis due to the drought has hit many part of Southern Africa and floods that Malawi experienced last year.

This thing that the president is doing is the same as what happened between Pharaoh and Moses in Egyipt,but bear in mind that the man of God will always win no matter how long it will take, God works in different ways.
