Holed up in Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri finds himself in a state of confinement, barred from venturing beyond the borders of the nation to interact with his flock except via social media platforms. If he dares cross the Malawian border, there is a high risk he may be seized by any he country he may find himself and be extradited to South Africa, where he brazenly evaded legal obligations by skipping bail when his life was in grave danger.
Despite the seismic shrinkage of his once formidable sphere of influence due to relentless court skirmishes, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri exhibits an unyielding resilience. His disciples, like a fervent testament to an inexplicable spiritual magnetism, staunchly affirm their adoration for the prophet.
Their unwavering devotion underscores an inexplicable spiritual allure, drawing multitudes from South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and beyond—pilgrims converging upon Malawi to partake in spiritual communion as they herald the new year on Malawian soil.
Amidst this fervor, foreign exchange streams into the country, injecting vitality into the local economy. The narrative persists: Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, despite the legal tempests, endures as a charismatic figure whose spiritual allure transcends borders and resonates in the economic pulse of Malawi.
Wrote the Prophet on his official Facebook page:
“We couldn’t even finish counting people but roughly 23,000 people came from different countries and the rest, from here, Malawi. After all the battles our Prophet major 1 has been through, then we have such numbers still following him locally and internationally. indeed Jesus Christ is Lord!”
