From the wonders of the aging and experienced entrepreneur Napoleon Dzombe of Dowa to the magic and steadfastness of glowing and youthful Shepherd Bushiri who trades as a Prophet, Malawi, if such like-minded numbers can be growing geometrically, would be heading for greatness.
Behold, Bushiri’s Goshen city brainchild project has been awarded as one of 30 emerging business brands in the Middle East and Africa. The award took place at a grand, glitz, and glamour award ceremony conference held in Dubai three days ago.
The awarding entity, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) underlined that the awards are meant to encourage and inspire emerging business leaders and companies to transform their businesses, meet the needs of their customers and inspire communities.
According to MENA, Goshen City was among 100 nominated companies and it was among the 30 companies that received the award from the jury and selection committee.
Said the chairperson of the committee: “Though still under construction, Goshen City is one of the most followed corporate brands in the world, attracting the interest of various business leaders and companies across the world. This award is meant to encourage, motivate and inspire Goshen City.”
Speaking at the event, guest of honor, former French President Francois Hollande who personally handed the award to Goshen City, said the companies being recognized represent the future of global business.
“They are the hope in the face of the challenges caused by the competing global geo-political and business interests spearheaded by the West, on one hand, and China and Russia, on the other hand”, he said.
Since his mysterious arrival back to Malawi from South Africa in 2020, Prophet has never traveled outside Malawi, his home country where he is enjoying a diplomatic sovereign shield against South African prosecutors and assailants who have reportedly unsuccessfully attempted his life on several occasions. Against this background, Bushiri, was represented at the event by his elder brother Apostle Misheck Bushiri who welcomed the award.
“I am here representing Dr. Shepherd Bushiri, who is a clergyman and businessman. He sent me to speak on his behalf, and I quote, “This award is for all Malawians. They have been supporting the project both locally and politically. I appreciate the award and promise that Goshen City will be what will bring the world to Africa.”
This was MENA’s 8th award ceremony, and since its establishment, they have awarded over 200 business leaders and companies in the Middle East and Africa.
