Prophet Bushiri warns Rev Chakwera over son’s attack on his church 

South Africa-based Malawian Major Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has warned  opposition leader  Reverend Lazarus Chakwera to rebuke his son, Nick, against attacking him and his Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) on social media.

Major Prophet Bushiri: Is Chakwera prepared to fight with me? Steady, ready, go deeper!

Bushiri issued the  stern warning after Chakwera’s son went on Facebook to attack ECG for selling church materials.

The Prophet said different churches and religions across the world, since time immemorial, sell church materials as part of raising funds for running their ministries.

It is surprising, added the Prophet,  Nick  Chakwera chose to go public to mock and question ECG church materials as if it something out of ordinary.

Prophet  Bushiri said he saw the post as a “deliberate and well calculated move” by Chakwera’s son to get into conflict with him.

Asked why he has responded defying his tradition of remaining silence, the Prophet underlined: “I cannot be silent when somebody whose father is respected Man of God and also a renowned politician goes public and attack my church.

“My warning is going to Chakwera because I expected him, as a Man of God I respect and also a politician, to have realised that his son has made a mistake. He should have rebuked him and advise him to take down the disdaining post on Facebook.

“I don’t see such a respected man choosing silence over such a post.

“Further, you can see that some members of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) which Chakwera leads  joined on the post supporting Nick and attacking my church. I can’t be silent against such provocative moves.

“I want to tell Chakwera that I respect him as a Man of God and also a politician. As such, he should tell his son to leave me alone. I don’t want to be dragged into conflicts with MCP and his church.

“I am not MCP, DPP, PP, UDF or Aford. I am Major One and I am a Prophet and  man of God. I am warning Chakwera not to allow his son drag me into religious war. He should leave me alone because when I react he will not like me,” said Prophet Bushiri, popularly known as Major One.

He questioned why Chakwera’s church charge for using Sheaffer  ConferenceHall for use and also charging fees for  Assemblies of God  University including religious literature.

“So why is he questioning church materials instead of his?”

Nick Chakwera who is also a Pentecostal pastor says he does not regret his post.

You are a MAJOR 1 not a minor 1 Daddy forget about them do the work that God has called you to do, they just want to be come a stumble stone on your way but they will not succeed in Jesus name.


Major1 is right to direct his warning to the father so he can school his son.I guess he is not alone.This is very strange behaviour from the son of an honourable man.musiyeni munthu akupanga zake,a nick zikukukhudzani pati?


A man of God issuing threats on a petty issue like this simply shows he is no longer a man of God. He has indeed lost direction. These are not the tread marks of a man of God. What does he want from Laz Chakwera? Is this something to call for a religious war for, and what does he mean by “religious war”?


Rev Chakwera do not answer anything. I know you as such a leader who does not answer provocations. God alone knows that you have done nothing wrong.

If one picks quarrel with so many people it is deemed childish. As a leader keep silent we stand with you. So many people provoke you ranging from APM, Your Constituency chairman, Kaliwo, etc but you have always kept quite. What a leader.


aaaaa I don’t see the reason why big man Chakwela is involved in this issue, Ndale basi!!!!!! palibe nkhani apa!!!!! kusowa zochita?

bwana wankulu

A Christu now also want Jihad
keep us entertained niggers.


This gives us an idea of Bushiri,’s level of thinking Please be serious . Chakwera would, if anything at all, act if Nick was underage


I wonder if Bushiri is really a prophet, because a prophet doesn’t fight back. These are Prophets who wants to fill up their bellies as Paul wrote to the Phillipians in Chapter 3 verses 18-19.


Leave Laz Chakwera alone,am not a politician or belong to chakwera’s church.Stop intimidating each other.Tamangolalikirani mmene mukuchitira baba,galimoto zopanda engine ziziyenda, ma fridge oonongeka azigwira ntchito basi.Mphotho nonse mukalandira kumwamba.Devil is always happy when he sees men of God pulling each other down so dont listen to him,correct each other mwachikondi mukalakwirana.Free advise!

Mudzamva liti

Bushiri, ufuna kunena kuti iweyo ukalakwira anthu ena iwo apite kukayambana ndi bambo kapena mayi ako? Nick is an adult and no longer under the control of his father. Ukumuopa chiyani? Zoona munthu wa Mulungu choosing “to react”? Palinso za uMulungu apa? Mufuna kudutsako pa Mulungutu? In fact do you know what “major 1” means in religious circles? Find out and tell me. You just face Nick head on; don’t involve his father; he has nothing to do with those issues. Dzisungireni ulemu poopa kuti anthu angapitilire kupeleka ndemanga zawo.
