shepard bushiri is good leader and young billioner who motivate us and teach us something that is prophetical be boldness with everything



Chincho de critical

As long as Bushiri plays a role in developing the economy of our sick Malawi I see no any problem of where his wealth originates from.


I wonder why malawians are interested to know where Dr Bushiris wealth comes from and then what is he not allowed to prosper


Let me concur with Generation wa Vipers, how has Bushiri accumulated such a massive wealth within such a short period of time? Bwinotu – bwino.


The now close relationship between Bushiri and APM has hit hard on certain quarters. There was a time when they wanted to use Bushiri their political silly moves. The first blow was when Bushiri declared that he would vote for APM if elections were today. Why should APM be resistant to the young man who has shown interest in the way he is doing things in Malawi. Asiyeni eni ake ayamba kugwirizana. Wakwiya ndi mfiti basi.

Muthalika should arrange a meeting with Bushiri. He has suffered a lot at the hands of DPP operatives now they have realized that the Guy is important for the country’s development.
