Prophet Bushiri to construct a mega Church in South Africa, swallowing up to 60,000 congregates

Malawian prophet based in South Africa Shepherd Bushiri has made an announcement that his  Enlightened Christian Gathering Church (ECG) will now embark on a project to construct a mega prayer building that will take up 60,000 people in South Africa.

Bushiri: The new church will take over 60,000 people at once

Bushiri: The new church will take over 60,000 people at once

The announcement was made during a Sunday Service which was live on his television Prophetic Channel.

According to Bushiri, the church will be constructed in Midland and among others; it will have a 5 Star Hotel, University and other equally important infrastructures.

“Am happy to announce today that plans to construct a big church in Midland have finally been finalised. For now we have started a temporary structure that is costing us up to $4 million and once we are settled at our place, construction for the church will begin,” explained Bushiri to his congregates.

‘Major 1’ as he is proudly called also shown the designs of the yet to be constructed church and hotel.

According to the man of God, the church will serve his purpose to accommodate as many people as possible.

“This is a dream come true to me because this church will not have Overflows as is the case in this premises that we are. It is a big task to visit all these Overflows every time we have a service and this error is being corrected now. I believe we will join hands and make this dream come true. This is your place of worship and as usual, great things are expected to happen,” said Bushiri amid cheering from his followers.

Bushiri’s ministry has expanded alarmingly ever since he relocated to South Africa. He has become one of the most richest and famous prophets within a short period of time.

Other great men of God such Prophet Uebert Angel of Zimbabwe have described this humble prophet from Malawi as “Sharpest prophet in the whole world.”

His move to South Africa was not received well by fellow Malawians who felt the Prophet abandoned his country at a time when his presence in Malawi would have greatly boosted the economy of the country that keeps dwindling despite regime changes.

However, according to Bushiri’s Public Relations Officer Kelvin Sulugwe, the prophet never abandoned Malawi, but only fulfilling his calling purpose.

“It is unfortunate to think that Prophet Shepherd Bushiri abandoned Malawi. Truth of the matter is that a prophet is usually a prophet of nations not a nation. He is serving people well in South Africa and this has made it easier for from different countries to visit him. At the same time, his movements are prophetic as told by the God he serves. He has stayed in Tanzania, Zambia and other countries. He was in Malawi all his life time and just few months ago, he had an event in Mzuzu that shook the country.”

“As it stands, the prophet is already of great benefit to the economy of Malawi. He has establishments in Malawi and has employed thousands of Malawians. When he became President of AFRICCI, he gave chance to Malawian companies to submit proposals for funding and I believe some of them were successful. All in all, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is a Malawian and he will continue being of benefit to his country, with or without any support from other powers,” concluded Sulugwe.

    Dnmj, this is not a name, hiding your identity because you know there is nothing good that will come out of your head. My prophet serves a true living God and if you think for a second that he relies on your so called witch doctors then you are day dreaming. He is a true man of God and there is nothing you can do about it. I LOVE MY PROPHET AND WILL CONTINUE DOING SO TILL DEATH my life was a mess before I knew MAJOR 1. GI DEEPER PAPA, IYEEEEEEEEE! POWERRRRRRRR, SMALL SMALL SMALL, nine months in your mother’s womb just to prophesise.

    Mind you Bushiri, relying on sangoma’s will not take long. Beware of keeping the vows you made with your sangoma.

    Papa why dont you built this state of art church in your homeland?

  10. Daughter of Major 1 says:

    Prophet Bushiri is my first spiritual father and he is the sharpest one. Papa you are indeed the servant of God. People are complaining about the first class church you are building , complaining about the amount of money will be used for the project. I am failing to understand because this church will benefits everyone in this world. if the money was used for the world cup which will only take one month, no one will complain. but because is used to build a church that will be used by everyone forever and ever, people are complaining. As for our family, we are not complaining because we will support PAPA as much as we can. No one is willing to sponsor churches in this world but everyone wants to control how the church money is used. Papa , keep it up and i knew immediately when the video clip was shown that the devil will be provoked. One more thing, Papa is originally from Malawi not Zimbabwe, But his spiritual father is from Zimbabwe. This is the power of TSALACK, SAKAL, TOBE, SHALVAH, and SHAWAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! iyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh.

  11. Winston msowoya says:

    What is behind Bushiri’s construction of a mega church that would pack 60.000 prayers in South Africa while there are millions of poor Malawians living in shacks similar to medieval age? To my comprehension,Jesus Christ care for poor people unlike this fallacious Prophet who continues to amass wealth for his own greedy ends and those of his collaborators.Malawians,when are you going to Wakeup from your slumber? Indeed,there are myriads of problems Malawians are facing at home like the inadequacy of Clinics,Scools,Clean Water,Food for our kids and many other human vital necessities.However,who are going to benefit from this prestigious symbol be it poor Malawians or poor South Africans?

  12. Bololo says:

    Goodluck Bushiri in your business ventures.

  14. Tifufuze Zoona says:

    For one, I believe any true prophet would listen to, and do only what God is telling them. I am of the opinion that matters of spirituality are not always synonymous with patriotism. For example, prophet Elijah was branded the “troubler of Israel” (his nation); Jesus was rejected and did not perform miracles in Nazareth (His home town); the condition God gave Abraham (Abram) for him to be blessed was to LEAVE (not live!) his home and relatives. I know there are prophets who are based in their native countries e.g. Senior Prophet TB Joshua. But I am of the view that what is key is to go by God’s will. Maybe, just maybe, it is high time as a nation we re-examined our relationship with God. Otherwise kumasemphana ndi galimoto ya malipiro in this manner plus cash-gate scandals, mismanagement of natural resources etc could be a symptom of a spirit of poverty tormenting our nation -God forbid!

  15. Fundo says:

    Malawians, can u give $4million for temporary structure? U dont have such a giving heart whether its Bushiri, Joshua etc. Things are moving there financially coz of giving….

  16. wisdom j.chirwa says:

    I do agree with Opportunity, the Mega Church , the five star hotel and the university could have been constructed in Malawi , but a Malawi sanje, kaduka, ana athu totse could benefit. Onani soprano tilikulila.

    Ife aMalawi tisanamizane, when Shepherd Bushiri was in Malawi people gave him names, some said he is fake. It’s like Jesus in his own country they called him names, some said he is the son of Maria and the Carpenter Joseph. sopano zakoma pati? Mumuleka mwina azachita zoposa APA.

This time it will take the President himself to invite Major 1 back home!!! We stand to lose if not done quickly. Zuma is benefitting already 50 billion!!!!! Even the oil exploration Bashir has all the contacts. Let’s nurse our hobby of being poor and jealous!!

  35. Nyayekha says:

    Besides financial problems which are unbearable to each and every Malawian accept for apm and his dpp cronies we have daily voilent robberies day&nite,24hrs daily blackouts and dry taps ,i think prophet bushiri wud have done better had he invested in malawi than in sudan and southafrica.

  36. Wisdom Of Karonga says:

    That’s what you expect when someone is blessed.Certain influential politicians tussled with him to the point that this man of God sojourned in South Africa and God gave him refuge there.It’s all about jealously and hatred for northerners.

    The fact is Malawi will not develop as long as a northerner is not president because God chooses his own leaders.Leaders from southern Malawi are corruptly chosen and are not naturally blessed hence the predicaments, poverty, and misfortunes prevailing in Malawi.A blind man cannot lead the caravan.

    Now we hear PAC blocking Federalism calls as if Malawi has ever been redeemed in a unitary system, all this to protect the devil’s influence. These are elements of a cursed country in which good leaders are not given any room to lead the people and to fulfil the wishes of God.

    Look at Rwanda, now a blessed country because it’s leader practices honesty and stamped out corruption, he loves God and loves all tribes and has enabled a culture of tolerance between tribes.Such a leader is a blessed one by God because he has full wisdom. We have never had such leaders in Malawi since the country was born. Kamuzu’s leadership was partly blessed because he had traits of a northerner but lost track due to egotism and paranoia.

    Typical Malawian. He started in Malawi get ric h Then run away. Where has he got all The money? Why he can not build in hos country? These are young men who has made money on weak people. Churches of nowardays are milking people money. Imported Churches. He went tog South Africa because he knew there is money there bur he started in Malawi. These churches of Alelua are money business. It does not take long for a man/woman to make money in Africa If one is good to convince people of These type of church. One need vocaburary. Thats all. I have attended one of this churches to study how they cauth the hearts of people. With poverty, Aids its easy.

  47. mtumbuka1 says:

    Fact is that he is not a patriotic Malawian. I understand education also did not help him much…. When I was in south Africa couple of weeks ago, I met this other prominent politician (an anc member) he said to me that the south African government has strike a deal with him and he will have shares from the tourism sector bla bla bla… And the land in Midrand was also given to him by the anc government. The fact that remains therefore is that bushiri is a politician, a business man and a magician. The guy pockets about 80 million dollars from the Kuwait government, he is currently getting millions from the south African government and he has nothing to lose but everything to gain but as to what his secret weapon and power is, still remains an unsolved misery. I would love to suggest that he invest in Malawi and make all these deals with the Malawian government (minus cashgate of course) and turn around the ailing economy. He happens to be the man I don’t admire and wishes to meet. Foreigners are the ones benefiting from him. I have never heard of a tumbuka sell out until bushiri availed himself. Anyways, as individuals we have goals and dreams to peruse and high is only pursuing his.

  50. sapitwa says:

    That s how it goes! With loud noises in the fame, we saw lot of people flying to TB Joshua; the presidents, rich people and poor alike using their hard earned money. Many went there and came back empty as if they had never gone there. Just one day, he failed to foreknow what would happen to the hotel leaving more that 115 lost lives. He is slowly fading if not already finished.
    And another one is Chris who has been entangled in a cheating battle. He also is finished.
    There were many in the past: Billy Graham, Benny Hinn, Reinhardt Bonke( please ignore my spellings) etc before Chris and TB.
    They come and go but our God remains intact. He is Alfa and Omega and the only one to believe in, have faith in through Jesus for us Christians; not through these modern self declared saints whose focus is on money and material accumulation!

    God has brought Prophet shepherd Bushiri to SA to expose him to the world, all over the world watch him on prophetic channel. God raise him from a small country like Malawi to save the world, many people today have become Christians giving their life to our LORD JESUS CHRIST. Healing people from all kind of diseases, when Prophet was in Malawi only few people knew him but today billions of people all over the world know him. God can raise anybody from any country to fufill his prophecy no matter how small that country is, Our God is a Dangerous God He do what he say he say He will do. God bless Malawi, God bless Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, God bless us all Amen.

This is unfair as he has not even constructed a kindergarten here at home. Its too much. Remember one thing the prophet, the first coin which you enjoyed for opening up your prophetic role was a coin from poor Malawians. Now you are deserting them to such extent. Please Prophet put at least 1 in Malawi. Dont forget east , west home is best. One day you will need Malawians.
