Bushiri soldiers on with charity: Gives food to about 2000 victims of Dedza hailstorms

About 2000 families in Dedza whose crop was destroyed by hailstorms early this year have hailed president of  Shepherd Bushiri Investments (SBI) Dr Shepherd Bushiri for reaching out to them with relief maize.

Bushiri, who is also a prophet of God with the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG), is currently in a nationwide relief maize distribution to various vulnerable groups in the country.

So far, five districts have been reached and more than 12 000 families have been helped with relief maize. The districts are: Lilongwe, Salima, Mzuzu, Kasungu and Ntchisi.

Speaking on his behalf in Dedza, SBI communications director Ephraim Nyondo said Dr Bushiri is a man blessed with a heart of giving.

“WE are in a nationwide programme of reaching out to vulnerable families in the country and Dedza is one of them.

“There were over 2000 families here whose crops were destroyed by hailstorms in January. Some are going without food. These are the people we are targeting,” he said.

One of the beneficiaries, 73 year old Mercy Lumbira thanked Dr Bushiri and SBI for reaching out to them.

“WE are very far from the city. But for someone in South Africa to remember us like this, nooooo it must be God. I thank God for Prophet Bushiri and I pray for him to live long,” she said.

Dedza district disaster officer Zione Mafuleka hailed Dr Bushiri for the gesture saying it compliments government efforts of protecting vulnerable.

The programme continues next week in Balaka, Blantyre and Chikwawa districts.

This is what the words of God teaches that, faith without works is died. I’m very proud of you my spiritual father that, whatever you teach on the pulpit is what you demonstrate outside. May the same God that you preach bless you more so that, you can touch other people’s life’s.

‘When your right hand gives, let your left hand not know’ that’s what the Bible says. The problem with false prophets is that they use miracles and gifts to lure people in order to build their church. If we look at all rich countries, they did not become rich by giving gifts to their people – but developing skills and knowledge. They built industry and invented aeroplanes, cars, computers, mobile phones as well as developed medication and medical equipment etc. As foolish as we are in Malawi and Africa, we continue clinging to useless things – miracles whilst using medication,… Read more »

There is nothing wrong to distribute food items in full view of the press. This is done in the name of transparency after all Bushiri himself was not there. Compare this with gluttons who gathered in Blantyre in the name of fundraising consuming uwende supplied by Mia in full view of the press. Was that necessary? What Bushiri and his SBI have done is in the best interest of the public unlike what those gluttons were doing. All the districts that have been reached so far are from the central region, is Lazaro not ashamed that he has not fed… Read more »

I appreciate what Bushiri is doing for the people of Malawi, but I have a big problem with distributing foodstuff in the glare of the media which I believe is at the invitation of his Publicity Officer. This is more undignifying for the recipients of assistance. These are our mothers and sisters, father and brothers who are already vulnerable and their dignity taken away. Why would a man of God want to shame them by showing them to the world carrying bags of maize. If this is for marketing purposes then God won’t be happy at all. God is always… Read more »

Zukani a Malawi, I think it is wrong to blame people who distribute maize, instead of blaming the journalist who published the story and put it on the social media if you have got issues with it.

Even good things that Jesus did was published that’s why we are able to know and read them. So it is not wrong that what Bushiri is doing is written. Kungoti a Malawi tiri ndi vuto. This is what is called news so that we know what is happening. Simatama . Few weeks ago someone wrote that Bushiri is broke because he stopped charity work, pano wayamba mukuti akudzionetsa. Are we sane?
