Police get orders to avoid providing security to Bushiri’s cheap maize sale 

Malawi Police in Ntcheu have reportedly refused to provide security and manage hundreds of people scrambling to purchase cheap maize that Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has started selling in the district since Wednesday this week.

Bushiri’s cheap maize for sale

Bushiri’s spokesperson, Ephraim Nyondo has confirmed the development ; adding they have temporarily suspended the sale as they explore to engage private security companies.

“A lot of people have come to purchase the maize and we cannot manage such huge crowds. We have tried in vain to have police help us manage this. But we will still continue with the exercise to save the starving poor Malawians,” said Nyondo in an interview with Nyasa Times.

Ntcheu Police spokesperson, Hastings Chigalu told local media that: “I  cannot comment on issues that can compromise national security” and could not take any questions for clarification.

District Commissioner, Smart Gwedemula avoided commenting on the issue when local media sought to hear how his office was collaborating with the Shepherd Bushiri Foundation in the sale of the maize.

Bushiri has intervened in Malawi’s severe hunger situation that has left close to two million people in panic with private traders selling the commodity at K25 000 per 50 kilogramme bag.

The South African based leader of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) Church is selling a bag of maize at as low as K5000; a move that has earned him praise at a time citizens are suffering.

On Wednesday, Ntcheu residents scrambled to purchase the maize as  late as 18:00HRS.

Last year, Bushiri had pledged to supply maize at cheaper prices at a time the Malawi government was resorting to importing the commodity.

He claims his kind gesture has no political attachments and vows to reach every area in huge need of the maize.

No surprises here…Police is very partisan! Major Prophet should engage the Army if he wants a professional security agency…the Police are very blue!

Its a private arrangement he should make his own arrangements for the security of his Satanic maize.

What is satanic maize? Satan resides in your heart not food that is eaten and passed out as mabibi.

Satanic is any inclination of mind contrary to the will of God. Is helping in time of need good? Am sure the original
designer of Maize DNA is God Himself. And those who eat this maize have nothing to lose but save money you
would have taken from them. Am sure that when you are not on the side of Christ you are on the other side, Satanic and you cannot see anything good cause you are blind.

Whenever you mention the name of satan he is happy.
