Shepherd Bushiri’s trending photo of his early life

PRETORIA-(MaraviPost)-An enlightening picture showing the leader of Enlightened Christian Gathering Church (ECG) Shepherd Bushirihss gone viral.

Major 1 as he is popularly known was snapped back in the years whole riding a bicycle.

A sharp contrast to his current mode of transport. He now flies in private jets and now need a motorcade to go to his church on Joburg on the latest of automobiles.

Humble beginnings. Bushiri back in the day riding a bicycle. Date unknown

The major has not had a good 2019 as he was hauled into the courts in South Africa facing a plathora of charges. He faces offences of fraud and money laundering, as well as the contravention of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (POCA), which had been committed from 2015.

The flamboyant prophet as a taste for the finer things in life and has not shied away

from flaunting his exquisite taste. The Malawian born prophet is believed to be worth a whooping $150 million. This makes him the richest pastor in Africa.

In the image captured from the hey days. Bushiri’s dress sense has nor changed much. He can be seen wearing a suit even though he is riding a bicycle.Bushiri was brought up in Mzuzu which is the northern part of Malawi. He runs an investment company, Shepherd Bushiri Investments, based in Sandton near Johannesburg, with interests in mining and other property.

Bushiri is now believed to be the owner of 4 private jets

He now owns four private planes. In response to questions over the source of his wealth, he has said

“I am a businessman and that is separate from being a prophet. My prosperity is from private businesses. Such questions are not asked from leaders of white churches but when an African man prospers, then it’s a problem.

It remains to be seen how Bushiri will spend his 2020.

  1. 1. The sacrosanct cardinal constitutional principle, enshrined even in the international legal instruments, notably the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is that an accused person is innocent until the contrary is established beyond reasonable doubt.

    2. The onus (burden) of proving the alleged guilt rests squarely upon the prosecution (State), and not on the accused person.

    3. The irresistible inference in the eyes of the law is that H.E Dr Shepherd Bushiri, PhD, and Dr Nary Bushiri are currently innocent of all the charges before the law courts.

  2. Richest pastor in Africa.. Which Africa? Unless if Nigeria is out of Africa… He doesn’t even make it to the top 5…nwaz do your homework properly.. For your own info, the richest Pastors in the world are in Africa and Bushiri is not one of them
