HRDC appeals to Malawi govt to let Bushiri’s child travel to seek medical attention: ‘Sanctity of life must be protected’ 

Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) has appealed to Tonse Alliance government to allow Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s 8-year-old daughter to travel to Kenya to seek specialised medical attention.

Government blocked Bushiri’s daughter to seek medical attention in Kenya on Friday and hasn’t given reasons for the move.

However, during the press briefing on COVID-19 in Lilongwe on Tuesday, HRDC leadership commented on the issue, saying government should, in the first place, consider the life of the child because she does not have any problem with the law.

HRDC says government must consider “the sanctity of life” in dealing with the issue in which Prophet  Bushiri’s daughter.

The group has since asked government and Prophet Bushiri to sit down quickly so that the child travel to Kenya and access medical attention.

In a statement, Bushiri’s spokesman Ephraim Nyondo said: “Having worked with the prophet for many years, I have noticed that he is a man of faith who believes that doctors treats; but it is God who heals. He believes the child has a right to life and access to medical attention just as any other citizen.”

Bushiri’s lawyer  Wapona Kita confirmed the daughters and their grandmother were on Friday prevented from travelling to Kenya yet there are no travel restrictions imposed on them.

This bushiru guy has a very proven history of lying to the masses. He lied that he walks in air and himself osatumidwa made a pathetic video to ‘prove’ that. He lied about owning 3 jets, he lied that he will not run away from south africa, he lied about making short hands grow, he lied about making a car without an engine start, he tried to lie about 3 people who died in a stampede in his church, he lied that he got his riches from his father that has been rich all the time, he lied about making… Read more »

I think the hrdc are doing the right decision to rescue the daughter who is not concerned with his father’s matters therefore it is better for us not to tolerate before things reach worse situation

As a father he must know that what he does will always affect his children. When he goes to jail for 10 years will it not affect her? Ndiwabodza mkulu amaneyu everything he says must always be verified independently, that includes the claim that his daughter is ‘critically ill’. HRDC must help those with hiv that this person gets their money chatering planes for.

What’s good for the Goose is good for the Gander!

Government cannot just allow a few minority through and ignore the many. The Constitution does not allow for a Cherry Picking advocate; it sides on serving the many.

HRDC are you a lobby group or rights advocate…be careful as you may well be in violation of your Articles of Association and Memorandum. A case of too many Cooks!

This HRDC nonsense needs to be disbanded. It’s quickly becoming a nuisance and a scourge on our democracy. They choose issues that only benefit them and their personal interests. Apa adya dollar za Bushiri. Where are they when other Malawians are being arrested? Who helped chanthunya?

HRDC lost track ages ago when they meddled in politics. There are wider human rights issues they should push such as the selective justice system – loads of people jailed long term for minor offenses, access to quality education, and lack of health care e.t.c

HRDC,please stop this nonsense.You are not here to dictate what the government want to do.Why don’t you encourage the Malawi Government to build better hospitals so that everyone must be accorded the treatment rather than going abroad.Can a poor person go abroad for medical?You are on a wrong direction now.

The government should let Prophet Bushiri’s daughter receive medical help abroad. A government is suppose to promote the health of its citizens. In the bible, King Hezekiah had a deadly boil. God told King Hezekiah that He would heal him. Isaiah, the prophet, who saw God’s throne, instructed people to put a medicinal solution of figs on the boil. King Hezekiah recovered. Prophets and preachers have their own doctors. Luke, who the book of Luke is named after, was a physician. If anyone of us was in that situation, we would not want our child to be denied medical treatment.… Read more »

Did you say Bushiri brought joy to many? Or did you mistake that with misery? Can you give examples please? Why is he on the run from giving this ‘joy’ to many in South Africa?
We don’t want fake preaching here. This mbava MUST be stopped from attempting a second escape. I would edge the authorities to keep a 24/7 watch on these crooks so they don’t escape. After all, this ‘man of god’ does pray for the sick and heal them. Let him do likewise to his daughter.

Kabwafu is a demon . The guy is a dunderhead he doesn’t think. The only achievement he has registered in his life is to hate the multi billionaire man of God, the Major Prophet of the Most High, Papa, Major Provovo, Daddy, Major 1, !!!!
