After donating to Ntcheu and Dowa in the central region, leader and founder of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has once again jetted in the country via Chileka Airport for a planned series of maize donation in the Southern part of Malawi.
Speaking on arrival from his base in South Africa, Bushiri explained that Malawi needs help from all sectors and he is taking a leading role to help government address hunger issues.
“I understand that there is hunger in our country. We cannot deny that fact and we cannot wait for government to address the crisis alone,” said the ‘Major 1’.
“ Truth be told, it is not just Malawi that has been affected. Alot of countries in the Southern Africa have been hit by this unfortunate happening. Am here to donate more maize to people in the southern part of Malawi understanding solely that Malawi is also my home,” said Bushiri.
Prophet Bushiri further revealed that as a man of God, he is mandated to help any government to develop the country, among others, addressing problems that Malawi faces.
“I support the government and I support His Excellency Professor Peter Mutharika. A leader is given by God. As a church leader, am mandated to support him and remain his pillar in all well being matters. This is biblical and not political. Am a religious leader and not a politician. I go by biblical and spiritual doctrine.
“ My help towards the people suffering with hunger at the moment is part of it and I will do all I can to help our government, the leadership in particular,” said Bushiri.
According to information made available to Nyasa Times, Bushiri’s first stop of donation is Zomba where he is expected to help thousands of families with maize.
