Malawi Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has hit back at people attacking him over the iPadgate prophecy as more members of the public join in to accuse the controversial man of ‘God’ of staging his prophecies. Bushiri maintains that the prophecy he captured using an iPad was authentic.
In the controversial footage, entitled Supernatural Capturing Photos in the Spirit – Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’ which was first posted on the Prophet’s YouTube channel in April but deleted after a shower of negative comments that branded him a fake prophet, Bushiri claims to capture using an iPad a congregant’s son who he claims needs prayers.
However, some observers with an eye of the eagle managed to dig the video and have now cornered Bushiri by showing how the alleged iPad prophecy was staged.
Using the moniker, Exposing Staged Miracles, the anonymous person claims: “When you look closely, Bushiri double taps his right thumb to open the camera roll (the image galley) on the iPad and the image preview as he taps is that of the same Child”.
But the self-acclaimed man of God who could not hold his temper, posted on his Facebook page the same video with a caption “A wise man once said NOTHING”, a caption most Facebook users deem as defence for his ‘prophecy’ which has now been declared ‘fake’ by hundreds of thousands on the social network.
In the video on his Facebook page, Bushiri claims that since the iPad he used “to capture the prophecy” belongs to a member of his congregation, it follows that the prophecy he captured was authentic and not staged.
Meanwhile, Ralph Kasambara who a suspect in the cashgate scandal and attempted murder of former Budget Director Paul Mphwiyo has defended Bushiri by advising people not to be too quick in declaring the pulpit master as a false prophet.
“For all those that are blindly joining in the so called iPad joke, I suggest you read Luke 6 verses 36 and 37.” said Kasambara.
