Prophet Bushiri feast of Easter feeds over 2000 families in Malawi: On nationwide charity

South Africa-based Malawian prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) on Thursday kick-started his nationwide charity programme in Malawi by feeding over 2000 families affected by disasters in the poor township of Mtsiriza in the capital Lilongwe.

Prophet Bushiri lives a full circle Christian life because he doesn’t just preach love on the pulpit but he also practices it

In Malawi, a family consists an average 5.5 people; to mean, his gesture managed to reach to more than 11 000 people.

Most Malawians are currently reeling from aftershocks of disaster induced food shortages as some had their crops swept away floods, some had them wilted in the sun, while others had their houses damaged.

These most affected have been the urban poor who, apart from the rural poor, are barely supported by any form of social protection from government.

Prophet Bushiri’s gesture, hence, comes as a great relief to these urban poor folks who, in search of recovery from these shocks, turns either into streets or, if worse comes the worst, to crime.

One of the beneficiaries, 56 year old Esmie Chiwalo, a widow of six, could not hide her tears of joy when got home with 4 bags of maize for her family.

She is one of the 600 people in Mtsiriza, Lilongwe City, whose house was completely damaged due to strong winds. All her properties, including food items, were destroyed.

Chiwalo is now sleeping rough in a small kitchen of her friend and having a meal has been quite a challenge. About 150 000 bags of maize has already bought to be distributed nationwide.

“At least, my children with find sleep now. I thank God for Prophet Bushiri. God should protect this man,” she said.

In an interview, Prophet Bushiri said it has always been his calling to reach out to the less fortunate both physically and spiritual.

“I do this every year. In fact I will keep doing. My heart never rests when a child of God I can help goes to bed without sleep,” he said.

He added he lives a full circle Christian life because he doesn’t just preach love on the pulpit but he also practices it. Bushiri, then, called on the Malawians to emulate his spirit.

The exercise continues this Good Friday in Salima where about 3000 families will also benefit from receiving relief maize.

Anthu ena mumaoneka ngati anzeru chifukwa choti mukulemba muchizungu but in actual sense ndinu mbutuma, sukulu sinakupindulireni.These people were affected by natural disasters and ofcoz the government tried its part to intervene through the Vice President.If you say political leaders have reduced people to beggars can you justify? Were the floods brought by politicians?

Next time, assist people who fail to reconstruct their houses or those who can, to start small businesses. These handouts are only good for a while and for your own publicity.

Political leaders and more especially the president should watch this (Bushiri distributing food to what I would describe as beggars). This is what you have reduced your own ordinary people to, beggars……a group of hungry families willing to queue for a bag of maize from Bushiri. How do you really sleep at night. This is an indictment on our political leaders. Any political leader or leader at all, who goes to some poorly constructed podium, shouting on top of his voice, saying that Malawi is in good space since independence or since DPP, UDF or PP took over, should just… Read more »

Bambo Chifundo, the sick are dying in hospitals due lack of drugs; 40% of the youth remain unemployed; people dying of hunger. All these are not natural disasters. As a survival instinct, people have resorted to begging to survive. They need money to buy drugs and to buy food but unfortunately they are unemployed. If you don’t understand the link Chifundo, there’s nothing I can do to make you see the light. I don’t know what’s blidning to see the reality, for what it is. Mukuimbira mfiti m’manja. Ana akufa mzipatalamu, because makolo alibe ndalama zogulira mankhwala olo zogulira zakudya.… Read more »

Thanks a million to you Bushiri, Malawi needs people and leaders who can feel the pain and suffering of other human beings especially the poor. Change is actually what you can feel on your skin or in your stomach not just empty-sweet-nothings from politicians. How could someone claim to develop the country beyond recognition when a single natural disaster wrecks the lives of innocent people like that? Go to developed countries and see how many disasters knocks them every year but people don’t suffer like the way Malawians do.

Well done man of God. Ng’ona zimanyoza zija zili kuti? God’s time is always the best. The righteous always wait for God’s time.
