Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) on Wednesday donated 1,000 blankets and a Plasma TV to Maula Prison in Lilongwe.
The donation was presented by ECG officials in Lilongwe and members of a Prophetic Channel, a TV station for Bushiri’s church.
Lawrence Shaba who represented the ‘Major 1’ said the multimillionaire prophet based in South Africa was keen o do charity work in his homeland.
Shawa said it is Bushiri’s fundamental prayer to God that he touches the needy and hopeless people in his country Malawi “as it is his biblical principle.”
Malawi Prison officials said they were “excited” with the donation and the “great surprise” the prophet has made in Maula Prison barely two months after he donated maize and millions of Kwacha’s to Maula and Mzuzu prison respectively.
The cash which Bushiri gave was meant to finish the building the prison and help inmates find space to sleep to ease overcrowding in the cells.
Asked why he still helps Malawians despite his attacks from everywhere in the country, Bushiri speaking from South Africa, said he is aware of the attacks that he will not stop helping poor Malawi people.
“They are my brothers and sisters and my own parents. I love them and God loves Malawi,” said the ‘Papa’.
“I work hard not for my stomach but for my fellow brothers and sisters in need,” he added.
