Prophet Bushiri told the news conference on Monday, March 7, 2022 that the bursary scheme has nothing to do with political ambitions but pure charity for needy learners.
The man of God hinted the need for Malawians to help the needy students while helping Malawi government agenda for quality education promotion.
“This is pure charity and an appeal to able Malawians to help the needy learners in all circles of life. There is a common norm that when one is into charity is associated to political coronations.
