From the wall of Bright Malopa: Bushiri needs Malawi govt consular help

Recent reports suggest Prophet Bushiri and his wife have been arrested in South Africa following claims that he was involved in money laundering. Further reports suggest authorities in that country intend to seize his property. Now this is what drew my attention but I shall come to that end later.

 Bright Malopa  with Bushiri the South Africa-based Malawian investor and prophet when he attended the Malawi Investment Forum 2018 in Lilongwe

Firstly I must say it at the possible earliest onset than I am a traditional Adventist Christian by faith deeply rooted in the theology that evolves around the second coming of jesus christ.

From my little knowledge about prophet Bushiri, he is a christian whose theology evolves around Charisimatic and prophetic ministries.

From this point of doctrine, our worlds will never meet. I have met him 3 times during which matters of faith were never part of our discussion. The first meeting was at a Gala event in Sandton followed by a chance meeting at the Investor forum BICC then by default in the plane last month when we shared a seat in the business class. I was coming from the middle east where I had private business transactions and he from South Africa and was in this plane after his private jet developed a fault.

By virtue of this coincidence, we had a 2hr jolly chat about things in general during which I discovered that he comes from my home area in Ntcheu including my mothers village at Kandeu T/A Ganya and all the villages between Mphepozinayi and Ganya via Gowa Mission and Muwalo villages we then delved into matters of commerce and investments with a focus on Malawi Tourism. It was then that I learned of his vast business interest in the region and the middle east, quite an impressive portforio I must add.

We had planned to engage more with a view to close an investment deal o over dinner at Crossroads hotel in Blantyre that evening but when I showed up for the 7pm dinner appointment,he was in Lilongwe apparently whisked to that land by his minders. We have not talked since then till news of his arrest started emerging.

Prophet Bushiri as a Malawian passport holder and a genuine business man. He has legtimate investments in South Africa. Investments between nationals of these two countries are governed by Bilateral agreements that include among others ; The JPC and the double Taxation treaties as well as other regional , continental and universal protocols.

The idea that South African Authorities intend to seize some of his investments because of errors of judgement in the manner he used some of those funds calls for an intervention from Malawi government.

It is therefore important that like any Malawian investor elsewhere, he be given consular help through which Malawi government can have first account over what the issues are in line with standing treaties between the two countries.

It cannolonger be a matter between the Bushiris and the Republic of South Africa. As it is,Malawi Government must raise a formal notice demanding a briefing over the developments.

I hope Mr Fraser Nihorya and Mrs (Gloria)  Bamusi  (at the Malawi High Commission in Pretoria ) are on this case.

Stop this nosense Malopa. Let him fight his battles. All what he calls his investment do not make any sense. Read the ladder that the world rich people take on how they source funds and apply it to become rich but Bushiri is not close to any. I dont have any convincing way on how he raised his money and applied it in order to become rich as he claims. Above all what makes him confine himself to foreign land if he ha legitimate business.

You are right Malopa. If government can manage to assist someone in middle east who was arrested i ilicit drugs, those labor exports who can not benefit malawians, what more with our own bushiri whose procceeds many malawians are benefiting, such as relief items, Malawi Government should come in ASAP.

seems sunandimvetse. Am not against middle east, but just to urge gvt to assist as it does with those trapped while seekin employment in other countries, middle east is just an example, like those labor exports who leave the country without government knowledge. though i don’t feed those families, the govt uses my tax in any transactions to assist those job seekers. open your eyes, dont be emotional for nothing. Understand bi-lateral agreement as highlitghened by Malopa.

He is not bragging about ndege but explaining how he met Bushiri and how he got information about his business interests. Let’s stop the self hate! We are all Malawians.

I agree that we cannot afford to watch the events as they unfold between the whole SA government fighting one person,a Malawian who has infact made our Mother Malawi famous for whatever subjective reasons that many of us have ready on social media. For what fo we gain as Malawians if one of our own is depoted or indeed his properties seized?He might have been wrongly directed by south Africans with the intention to expose and betray him later.We must stand up for him.

Bushiri is not an investor but a Pastor -cum-Thief who has enriched himself by hoodwinking people to give offerings and tithe in exchange for the so-called miracles. This money from the poor, vulnerable is what he has used as business capital. Malopa, as a learned person you need to realise that Pastors-cum-Thieves are a growing and very sad phenomenon on our African continent. Bushiri and other fake pastors need to be arrested.

Bright Malopa is not a learned person. His highest known qualification is MSCE. Political connections and cunningness got him DG at MBC and Director at Macra. You can see by irrelevancies in his story that the man is not up to the standard he holds himselfe to be. Bushiri is facing the law. Malawi Government’s consern is that he gets a fair trial. Laws that protect the fiscal, economic and security stability of a country apply to all: human and corporate citizens, as well as nationals and foreigners. When a foreigner is engaged in unlawful affairs he does face the… Read more »
