Bushiri acquires second plane: Malawi prophet cleared in South Africa probe

South Africa-based Malawian prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) has grown wings and he is flying unstoppably above hate after adding another major purchase on his heavy list of toys. Forget the red Bentley or that black Porsche Panamera , Bushiri is flying higher and higher with his new Aeroplane ZS-VIP.

National Airways Corporation (NAC) a commercial aviation company in South Africa confirmed to Nyasa Times that Bushiri has finalised the purchase of the plane on Wednesday, November 25, 2015.

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri Ministries public relations officer Kelvin Sulungwe  said the purchase of the Gulfstream plane is a “prophetic growth” for the ‘Papa Major 1.’

“The prophet is a man of example. We thank God for the news at hand and Him alone can prove to the whole world of His greatness. This only serves as a motivation factor to all Christians out there. It’s very real and possible to be a man of God and able to excel in personal life,” explained Sulugwe.

This is the second aeroplane that Prophet Bushiri – a man who is now popularly called ‘Major 1’ in Christian circles – has  purchased this year.

According to Sulugwe, the Aeroplane will help facilitate the prophet’s travels.

“The prophet is a mobile man. He travels a lot across the world preaching the gospel and this new Gulfstream will do him so much good by making his travels easier,” said Sulugwe.

He confirmed that the plane – estimated to have cost millions of US Dollars – will be handed to the Prophet within the next 14 days at a public event.

Meanwhile, Bushiri’s church has been cleared by South Africa’s Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural‚ Religious and Linguistic Communities, on investigations it has been conduction on churches in that country in an alleged commercialised selling of religion.

ECG has been cleared on allegations that it charges congregants 5000 rand (K202,391) for divine sessions with the ‘Major 1’.

“ECG-Pretoria has a membership of over 30 000 people that come to attend our weekly services. No one has ever been asked to pay a fee to meet the prophet during all our weekly services,” Sulugwe said.

He said following the growth of the church “at an alarming rate,” it continues to attract thousands of people from outside South Africa who, though not obligated, pay to be hosted by the church.

According to Sulugwe, Prophet Bushiri has nothing to do with this as he is only concerned with preaching while all prearrangements of the international visitors are done by an independent body chosen by the church, saying “we don’t stress. We relax.”

I believe so much in Major 1 s supernatural powers. He is highly spirited Man Of God ,ordinary people will not understand his powers unless they accept Jesus Christ and believe that He is our Saviour. Lets not worry about them cos they do not read the holy bible. If you believe in Jesus Christ, you will not judge Major 1.

Long live major 1 i’m behind you God should continue bless you ubundantly and keeps on doing the good work of our God

If anyone thinks that he gets money from the congregation, then it shows how wicked and weak people are. He has businesses and He teaches people how to be good and best business people. Yes, He prays for people to be rich! Is it wrong to be rich? Was it wrong for King Solomon to be the richest and wisest King? Everything thing He teaches comes from the Bible and I wonder which Bible people are reading!! People are infested with so much hatred and judgements of things they know nothing about. Who are you to warn the people to… Read more »

Malawians are very gullible. Nyasa Times, you have very sloppy journalistic research procedures. All you had to do is enter the aircraft registration ZS-VIP in google search and you wiould get all the information regarding the aircraft. The aircraft does not belong to Bushiri, it belongs to Medair. Medair is based at Lanseria Airport in Johannesburg SouthAfrica, and thet hires out private jets.


Jesus did not have a mansion, donkey, even a hut to live in. Why on earth does he have all these things. There busy taking money from poor ppl. And expand their business. Thats church money. U must be ashamed of yourself. Fake prophets

Proud to be associated with successful men of God like Major 1. Let us work hard and be honest and praise the living God.

wilfred Ephraim Ziba
number 132, no wonder you call yourself Safusa because you should have asked where the money used came from, major 1 is an example to every one because he preaches the Word of God at the same time he is a well known business man, am talking about billion dollars business here, if for a second you think the man of God is using church money to buy all what he has then you are wrong. for your own information Major 1 has gold mines not a mine and wells of oil, something you and I will just dream of… Read more »
