President Bingu wa Mutharika donated a fridge to controversial Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, of the fastest growing charismatic ministry, the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) who wedded his sweetheart Mary Zgambo at the Mzuzu stadium on Saturday.
While Vice President Joyce Banda sent a representative with MK20,000 cash.
Hundreds of people from all over the country attended the wedding that started in the morning and ended later in the evening.
The Courts in Mzuzu are hearing a case in which Bushiri is alleged to have impregnated 21 year old Brenda Phiri.
Beatrice Chumachaazungu Phiri dragged Bushiri to court claiming financial damages for “for impregnating my sister”.
But the case stalled at the First Grade Magistrate Court in Mzuzu after Bushiri successfully obtained an injunction preventing the court from delivering its verdict until a judicial review determines whether the Magistrate Lillian Munthali was well placed to handle the case and also whether Beatrice Chumachaazungu Phiri has sufficient locus standi (sufficient interests) in the matter.
Brenda delivered a baby girl weighing 3.5 kilogrammes five weeks ago.
Bushiri coupled with incessant prayer session, has put a formidable challenge to the allegations and clear his name.
“I am not worried about the negative publicity. They are advertising my ministry and Satan is paying the bills,” Bushiri told the media.
