South Africa-based Malawian, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, leader and founder of the Enlightened Christian Gathering Church International (ECG) has unveiled his plan to fund secondary schools construction in Malawi.
Bushiri made the revelations to Nyasa Times in an exclusive interview f explaining that he has secured millions of bags of cement to help with the project.
He said the project aims to make education available to Malawi youth especially those in rural areas.
“We need to make Malawi a better place to live. Most of the ignorance we have is as a result of illiteracy. I want to take a leading role in giving a future to our young ones with quality education,” said Bushiri.
He further explained that the project will target rural areas and said he would simply fund people building secondary schools, whether private or public institutions..
Bushiri said he will disclose the projected budget for the project.
Asked how he plans to go about it in relation to the lukewarm reception he is getting from government, Bushiri said he will do all the paper work and follow every protocol.
“I know they have been saying I don’t consult them, well, I will do all the paper work and make sure they are involved where necessary,” said Bushiri.
“But let me make it clear that I will directly fund the projects that will be selected and not give money to government. Otherwise, I love government and I respect our President. He is the father of the nation and I am loyal to his leadership unless they want to push me away deliberately,” said Bushiri.
Bushiri- fondly called ‘Major 1 – said he is not afraid of what is going and he will stand strong saying “Poison in a cup can kill but same amount of poison if put in Lake Malawi is no longer poison. It takes how small or big you are to be affected with such baseless allegations. Malawi is now wise even a villager can judge that I aim for a better Malawi.”
Pressed to comment on scathing allegations peddled against him by his detractors, Bushiri said he would not dignify them with his comment but the posterity will judge him leniently.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
