Bushiri rescues MP Bandawe from bankruptcy: Saved from losing seat

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has come to the rescue of Dedza East Member of Parliament Patrick Bandawe who risked losing his parliamentary seat for failing to pay K13.8 million.

Bushiri: Saviour
MP Bandawe: I am saved by Prophet Bushiri

Bandawe was facing with a cloud of bankruptcy from a commercial entity MM (Operations) which he owes K13.8 million from May 30 2018.

Bushiri’s spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo said, Bandawe engaged Prophet Bushiri, through Shepherd Bushiri Foundation (SBF), seeking funds for his humanitarian projects in the constituency.

“However, the Prophet, after having read the media that showed that Bandawe was facing bankruptcy, advised that we help him fight that first and then partner him on humanitarian projects,” he said.

Nyondo added that Prophet Bushiri found it imperative to help his bankruptcy challenge first to ensure stability in his constituency and also himself as a person.

In an interview with Nyasa Times, Bandawe hailed Prophet Bushiri for the gesture, calling it a stitch in time which has saved nine.

“I didn’t go to him to ask for a rescue on my bankruptcy issue. I went to him to seek support for my constituency—I pay school fees for orphans, I am supporting the elderly and I am constructing boreholes. But he saw to it that he must help me with my bankruptcy issue first. I thank him,” he said.

It was not immediately known what type of business Bandawe and the company transacted.

According to  laws, a legislator loses a parliamentary seat if the person is ‘an undischarged bankrupt having been adjudged or otherwise declared bankrupt under any law in force in the Republic’ according to Section 51 (1) d of the Constitution.

So far, no only one former MP Reverend Christopher Mzomera Ngwira was  declared bankrupt while in office.

He could not contest in May elections for the  Mzimba Hora seat.

Giving an individual all that money is shame. Bushiri needs to think about else is goner not work. We know he is trying find way in politics but he needs to tread carefully.

The Prophetic provovo, The sharpest prophet on earth, My Daddy, should be using his personal money. Just be quiet. Be content with your poverty

Komatu apa Juliana Lunguzi will never bounce back. Imagine if Bushiri pumps in millions of kwacha for proper development projects for the youth and for older people. Bandawe will not need to campaign for the next election. Juliana must find another constituency to contest. Try mu Lilongwe muno

Welcome to politics Bushiri. This man Bandawe is a very bad manager of finances. How can you trust him with Constituency Development Fund and any other public funds? And you Bushiri, be careful with setting precedents despite the fact that you have lots of laundered money.

The Major Prophet doesn’t need fans! He is God’s representative on earth. Whether you love him or loathe him, he still remains Major1. Blessed are those that have this revelation
