iPadgate! Prophet Bushiri hits back: ‘I didn’t use my iPad to capture the prophecy’

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri

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.

  1. Man of GOD continue bringing lost souls to Jesus Christ, all this noise is a sign that the devil is under panic. May the good lord forgive and bless us all.

  2. Bushiri .if you are anointed by GOD almighty why worrying about those ppo. I think you read bible ,did you hear any word from the bible that Jesuse went through revenge on those they were hurting him?did you hear that Jesus used any lawyer to defend him?so if you believe yourself that what you do is from GOD stop worrying about ppo.but if you keep on going against them,then we gona have a proof that you are on bussines. Every prophate that come on earth went through difficulties but they were depending in GOD as their lawyer. not ralph kasambala.

  20. God can use anything,if He wnt to review something,make sure before you judge, You pray had & God himself He told you that this prophet is nt from me.JESUS IS COMING SOON

  21. Why respond to accusation man of God ,defending yourself to accusations it may imply that something is wrong .However you and God know the truth .Responding to such accusation will only sparkle the debate to go on .People may conclude that prophecy was stage managed .Next time take an ipad from the back row not the front row because people may think it was your own ipad .With due respect Man of God stop responding any accusations against you .

  22. What if this man is really man of God? Dont u think it will mean u r fighting a servant of God? R u a pegan? Because u know how to write then u think u can write anything? Why cant u write how pathetic ur country’s economy is?

    God punish u!

  23. hey,people of today using ipad for prophecy not the holy book moses used his stick,but to day we are living in digital world indeed
