European newspapers focus on Prophet Bushiri

A number of European newspapers have published headlines to a story  self-proclaimed Malawian prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife, Mary,  who skipped bail in South Africa and fled their native country Malawi.

The Times, daily newspaper published in London, one of Britain’s oldest and most influential newspapers featured a picture of Bushiri in the  story about the head of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG)  church and the headline: “Africa’s wealthiest preacher Shepherd Bushiri on the run from fraud charges.”

It reported that Bushiri spirited himself back home to Malawi while facing a string of fraud and money laundering charges in South Africa.

The authorities only realised that Shepherd Bushiri, 37, had left the country when he issued a statement declaring he had made “a tactical withdrawal” after crossing at least two international borders, it reported.

Bushiri and his wife Mary, 39,  earlier in the month surrendered their passports in return for bail at Pretoria magistrate court.

German’s widely circulated newspaper  Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung also carried the story of Bushiri topped with his picture.

Bushiri has also been dominating headlines on BBC, Aljazeera, Bloomberg and all international media outlets.

There are times when it is best and safe to stay quiet and watch proceedings unfold. To me, this is one of those times. So, ……… quote my silence.

Rise and Fall of a Thief

He is a swindler. Walking on air? Why did he not demonstrate that in court in South Africa? Kuba basi. Doing that to the poor and the sick is cruelty Bushiri.

So you are one of those people who believe that only blacks are dumb? Well, you have just proved that you think so simply because you yourself are dumb. Of course you are, but not all blacks are. Don’t take yourself as representing all blacks.

Keep lying to yourselves. Even in his prophecies he never told you how it will end. One thing is for sure good always triumphs over evil. He took people’s money and God has listened to their prayers.
