Peoples Party officials are rejecting claims from some quarters that Malawian billionaire prophet, Shepherd Bushiri is the major financier of the party activities.
Acting PP president Uladi Mussa said the party has no political connection with Bushiri of the Enlighted Christian Gathering.
“As a party, we know him as a religious leader, he is a preacher and some of our members are members of his church,” said Mussa.
He said him as acting president, he has capacity to raise money for the party as well as the founder of the party Joyce Banda.
Mussa also said the 26 members of parliament who sit on Peoples Party benches in the 193 strong Hous help in fund raising.
Bushiri is apparently facing attacks from DPP government and its agents as they suspect that he may can run for presidency in 2019 elections.
But the South African based preacher has categorically said he is apolitical and has no presidential ambitions.
According to Bushiri, his church has membership of people from all walks of life and different political affiliations including the DPP, MCP, UDF, Aford and PPM.
