Bushiri touts his love for Malawi in Facebook chat: Sending his kids home for studies

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri says he loves and believes in his country Malawi so much that he is even sending his two daughters back home for their studies.

Bushiri: Patriotic

The South Africa based preacher made the comment in a rare and unexpected social media chat he had with Malawians on Facebook on Tuesday.

Bushiri underlined that nobody should lie to the nation that he doesnt love Malawi.

“I am a Malawian and I spend much of my time in Malawi. Everytime I am in Malawi, I silently go and preach to villages and townships,” he said.

He added that he so much believes in Malawi so much that he is sending his two daughters, aged six and four, to study in Malawian schools.

“We must be the first to believe in our country, to believe in institutions and to believe in ourselves.

“Nothing will move in our country if we think nothing can work here. Things can work in Malawi and they are working though there is always room to make them better,” he said.

Apart from echoing his usual statement that he has no political intetests in the country, Bushiri also answered questions regarding why he has taken time to build churches in Malawi.

“I do things according to my plans. Our first interest was not to build churches but to help people. That is why for the past three years we have spent billions in providing free maize, building schools, helping the elderly and supporting government social service delivery,” he said.

He added that, though he has a house in Lilongwe, he hasn’t built the house of his interest because he concetrated on helping the needy.

“Its now that we have moved to the phase of constructing churches. We are buildng big churches in Lilongwe, Mzuzu and Blantyre and it our hope that by April next year, we will have finished,” he said.

Bushiri further called on Malawians against thinking that Malawi will change by changing leaders. He said Malawi will change if Malawians change their mindset towards development.

“We need to begin to think that success is normal. We should stop thinking that a Malawian cannot work hard and succeed. We can all succeed. We should stop connecting success to magic, witchcraft and satanism. Lets develop a positive mindset,” he said.

Asked if Malawians love him, Bushiri said his nation loves him so much that is why he gets followed eveywhere.

That is his plans, inunso muli ndi ma plan anu leave him. To send his kids to malawian schools does not mean abandoning them. We critisise anything guys wake up. Malawi is poor but is the best place to raise your kids than SA or even Uk.

Sending kids to Malawi? Why can’t you be here you self? It is selfish for you to send kids as young as 4 and 6 away

James Banda. You are a fool. Major 1 is encouraging to believe on our selves. How do you feel of politicians who sends their kids to Europe or America for studies instead of building better schools and pay teachers well? You are such people who does not love your country. Malawi needs foreign currency. If we all spend our money in Malawi, we can build a strong economy. Inu ndi athu amene mumakagula mazila, tomatoes and onions mu shorprite at double the price just because ndi za kunja. School siyinakupindileni achimwene.

But not kids of 4 who should be mentored by their parents and not sent away as if they are orphans. Wa Chiyao you are an impotent fool.

Your name speaks volume that you never travelled. I have seen parents sending children to boarding schools as young as 4 just to teach them independence. Since you are a Tumbuka you will never understand anything apart from what you were taught at school which you cant apply in modern civilisation. just shows how thick headed you are.

Zayamba kuvuta zinthu kuJoni top another ena akukumbukila kumuzi. Bushiri knows that his days are numbered in South Africa that is why he is starting to retrace his steps back home. Dzulodzulo amati akuchepesa chithandizo kuMalawi chifukwa chakuti anthu akumunyoza koma lelo ndi awa akuti kuMalawi ndikobhebha.

Mwangodana naye muthuyu. Major 1 has financial muscle where he can choose to migrate to any country of his choice. He is celebrated in many countries including SA. If you land at OR Tambo you will be welcomed by his bill board. The mayor of Pretoria pleaded with him to build his church within Tshwane to boost tourism. Msanje siyizakupindulirani a Malawi. Major 1 is not in your league. Muthu ndi big uyu. Osamalubwalubwa ayi.
