A flyer that has been making the rounds on social media claimed Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa would be the guest of honour at the event ECG’s Prophet Bushiri would attend.

But the ECG has distanced itself from the alleged breakfast meeting, saying they had no business meeting scheduled for Harare.

An official at Meikles Hotel, who refused to be identified, confirmed that a booking for the venue had been made but was cancelled after Bushiri distanced himself from the event believed to have been advertised by tricksters.

The church said the adverts  of the meeting were fake and should be disregarded, since they were not on the ECG website or television channel.

“ECG (Enlightened Christian Gathering) Church would like to categorically state that we have no business meeting scheduled for Harare,” a message posted on both  Bushiri’s official Facebook page and official Instragram page read.

“It has come to our attention that some malcontents bent on tarnishing the image of ECG, as a church and Prophet Shepard (sic) Bushiri, have been circulating a flyer on social media platforms stating that he will be holding a business meeting in Zimbabwe.”

The the popular Malawian preacher condened the adverts to such breakfast meeting hoped Zimbabwean authorities would bring those behind the fraud to book..

“It has also been brought to our attention that these rogue elements behind these fraudulent adverts have used the name of the Zimbabwean Vice-President ED Mnangagwa,” the statement continues.

“Please, be in the know, had such a meeting been planned, our office would have followed through protocol to inform him (Mnangagwa).

“As stated above, ECG has nothing to do with this false advert being run by some media outlets in Zimbabwe.”

Ntokozo John Msipha, whose contact number is listed on the poster when contacted by Nyasa Times said he has hoped the organisers would convince Bushiri and Mnangagwa to attend.

He said since Bushiri and Zimbabwe vice president have refused to attend, they had to cancel the  event for another time.

According to the flyers, which were littered with spelling and grammatical mistakes, Mnangagwa was expected to be the guest of honour at the breakfast meeting, where a seat was going for $250.

Meanwhile, Bushiri  posted on his official Instragram page on Wednesday photos of his arrival in Mauritus for what he called a business trip.

“God willing, I will be meeting some government officials today,” wrote the billionaire Malawian preacher  based in South Africa.

He said the agenda of meeting Maurtius government officials is to discuss investments on the Island.

“It is high time we join together to pray hard and work hard in order for us to invest in God’s kingdom. It is the only way we can finance this gospel, spread it to nations and reach out to the poor,” he added.

Am also confused to see people who have knowledge about life are also squeezed into the knees of these called prophets. No doubts may be due to poverty, and one way of flying to the countries enjoying themselves. That is one way to show us that you do not believe in yourself but someone be feeding you and the entire home, that is ignorance. Anyway because you are used to it, and you may not change I see you die poorer. Do you know that in some countries there are no prophets but rich? In Japan, they pray once in… Read more »

Wakwiya, you think like me indeed. Malawi is very small and poorer but more prophets. These prophets have everything for day to day life but they were poorer. Most prophets have police or soldiers to protect them, why it is like this? I have not heard a prophet to prophesize the year, date and time to die, but for the others, and this is confusing. The prophets behave if they will not lose life one day. They need to know that, they have life and will lose it anytime, and should not be like kings forever. Be smart to fly… Read more »

Bushiri says he has to work hard to invest In Kingdom. In order to finance his gospel and reach to the poor people.I met a white IRISH man who came to work in Malawi. He asked me why there so many churches of prophets in Malawi? I said they believe God is better there. He said he was a Catholic but he does not believe in Churches where people are milking poor and they say they are men of God. In Malawi once one say against Bushiri or any pastor or question about them one can be attacked. The best… Read more »
