Malawi’s most famous prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church has made a historical home coming when he landed on a private plane in Lilongwe Thursday, on his way to Mzuzu where he is expected to host a Miracle Weekend Crusade at Mzuzu Stadium.
The plane , branded “Shepherd Bushiri Aircraft” is flown by two white pilots.
In a quick interview with Nyasa Times on arrival, Bushiri said he is grateful to God for his return home from South Africa where he has been ministering.
“I thank God we have landed safely. That’s what I was praying for. See you in Mzuzu tomorrow,” said Bushiri.
Asked if he is not disturbed with the backlash which was going round on social media that he lied of owning a private plane, Bushiri simply said:“Let’s not talk about those who don’t believe in me cause I don’t believe in them either.”
He added: “ I believe in God just as they do so well, God loves you, even you journalists God loves you, that’s what I can say not of the jet but of God’s love on you.”
Quizzed to comment on his latest miracles which have been strongly critiqued on some media outlets and social media, the Man of God said doubting Thomases will always be there but he will soldier on in his spiritual work.
Asked to comment why some people never believe in his miracles, Bushiri said: “Some people its just out of envy and hate and they will not believe in anything that I do. They don’t even believe that I have landed here on this jet. I bought a Bently car they claimed I was lying but they saw it here in Malawi. I am not here to justify my spiritual work but those who follow me they get the end result. I don’t do half measures.”
Probed on his ‘walk in the air’ miracle which many questioned and labelled them dubious, Bushiri was upfront: “If people can request me to walk in the air here in Malawi live, I can do it.”
He said “time will tell” the spiritual truth of his miracles.
“Let haters continue to denigrate my work for God, but many will benefit from me and I shall be vindicated spiritually.”
Asked to comment on bad headlines in the media, Bushiri said he was not fazed by unfair publicity.
“I do not get fazed by unfair publicity. I pray for responsible journalism. I am a believer of freedom of expression and I do what I can to promote the media hence I sponsored the establishment of publications and my Prophetic Channel,” he said.
“I get attacks on Nyasa Times; people write bad comments on Nyasa Times but I pray for them. I will not fight the media. I have a duty to do as Prophet.”
Bushiri , affectionately called “Papa” by his followers, reportedly performs several miracles at his church services.
From Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe, Bushiri who famed as ‘Major 1’ boarded his convoy that awaited him which had among others, 2 Hummer vehicles, BMW X6 and other posh cars.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
