Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) has dragged a Lilongwe based businessman Timothy Phiri to court for his failure to pay him back a debt amounting to K130 million.
According to the writ of court summons which Nyasa Times has seen, Bushiri has given Phiri 14 days after the service of the summons to acknowledge whether he intend to contest in court.
First defendant is Timothy Phiri, second defendant is Inde Bank Limited, and third defendant is Ned Bank Limited.
Affidavits which Nyasa Times has seen indicate that Bushiri gave Phiri K130 million debt in August in agreement whereby the businesmsan was supposed to pay back the whole amount.
According to the affidavits, Phiri is abusing and misusing the funds and is unwilling and refusing to pay back the money.
Phiri operates current account with Inde Bank. He also operates another current account with Nedbank, Mzuzu branch.
It is alleged that Phiri has acquired different vehicles using the man of God’s money.
Some of the vehicles include; Truck Registration number MJ 6863, Toyota Fortuner DZ 9009, VW Golf Registration number DZ 4960, Toyota Prado Registration number DZ 5201, Nissan Note Registration number DZ 2218, Nissan Note, unregistered, and Will Cyph Registration number DZ 3540.
Bushiri is being represented by Jivason and Company.
When agents of Bushiri have been requesting Phiri to pay back, he has always been saying: “I did not get any money for my business from any person, I do not owe any person any money,”
Bushiri is therefore asking the court to provide a mandatory order compelling the banks to release the money in the said bank accounts to court to be forwarded to him plus costs of the action.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
