Pastor Chirwa from Malawi killed in Cape Town as Bushiri claims death threats

Barely four days after Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) Church skipped bail and returned  to his native country, a Christian pastor  from Malawi,  Blessing Mduli Chirwa has been shot dead in South Africa during the night of Saturday, November 14, 2020.

 Malawian pastor Mduli Chirwa killed in Cape Town

Pastor Chirwa, a Malawian national, was killed in Cape Town area a called Deft.

 According to information gathered by Nyasa Times, pastor Chirwa before he went to Deft, he was staying in Joe Slovo Park.

Chirwa was reportedly  shot by armed robbers in Deft because he resisted them from stealing his car.

The Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP) in Joe Slovo  where he belonged were busy preparing his burial arrangements.

This follows Bushiri’s claims he had left South Africa because he had received death threats.

The preacher, who was on bail and awaiting trial for money laundering and fraud, had previously said he wanted to clear his name.

The Bushiris ‘miracle escape’ has already caused a diplomatic uproar with Malawi’s foreign minister Eisenhower Mkaka who reportedly met Bushiri in Pretoria- shortly before the prophet exited the country – told the BBC that he thought the South African authorities suspected the Malawians were trying to smuggle out the controversial preacher.

“When we were coming to Malawi leaving South Africa, we were exposed to stringent checks. It is just now that we are beginning to realise that maybe there was a suspicion that we were trying to smuggle Bushiri out of South Africa,” Mkaka is quoted by BBC as saying

On Monday morning he then complained, very publicly,  issuing a statement on Twitter about the seven-hour delay to the president’s journey, which included “vague security reasons” for thorough checks of the presidential plane.

Mkaka noted that the South Afrcain authorities had categorically stated that the controversial preacherhad not escaped on the presidential plane.

But he described South Africa’s treatment of President Chakwera as “improper”.

May the soul of Pastor Chirwa rest in peace.
From my perspective, more Africans and descendants of Africans are being hired in very visible positions of employment. People are taking note of how intelligent and excellent you are.
May the matter with Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, Prophetess Mary Bushiri, President Chakwera and the South African authorities be resolved peacefully (and in favor of Prophet and Prophetess Bushiri). The world is watching.

Wisdom is lacking in our judicial systems today. U see how evil has criped in because the government refused to use wisdom on high issues. Before u take a final decision on anything, u should always think on the unintended consequence.
The government was first to threatened his life. Someone is yet to be proven guilty but u went ahead asking for collateral if he leaves the country. Africa Africa Africa please return home with wisdoms of our fore fathers

My deepest condolences extend to the family, friends and well-wishers of Pastor Chirwa. May he sleep in Jesus.
Many of us are elated that Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and Prophetess Mary Bushiri are out of harm’s way.
Africa has intelligent and rich people there. I believe that Africans and African descendants are receiving even more respect in the USA. The matters concerning Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, Prophetess Mary Bushiri, President Chakwera, the authorities from the RSA etc. are able to intelligently resolve the problems.
