Bushiri chases SA police

Controversial Malawian pastor Shepherd Bushiri and his armed bodyguards had a three-hour standoff with South African Police this week, which ended with the officers fleeing.

The dramatic scene unfolded at the Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria where Prophet Bushiri stays.

Police had tried to obtain a statement from Bushiri, who is being investigated in connection with cases of intimidation, assault and death threats.

According to News24, Bushiri is alleged to have assaulted one Martin Antonio on three occasions between March and July after Antonio opened a case against the clergyman at the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities during its investigation into churches.

He accused Bushiri of allegedly destroying his marriage following his false prophecy.

Antonio said he lost his wife after Bushiri told her that Antonio’s mother had bewitched and cursed her not to have children.

“Bushiri sent his bodyguards to follow me everywhere I went. They swore at me, assaulted me and threatened to kill me.

“He wanted me to withdraw my case at the commission and the police station,” Antonio said, adding that hotel staff and guests had witnessed the incident. He vowed not to withdraw the case.

Malawi-born Bushiri is the head of Enlightened Christian Gathering, a Pretoria-based church that has thousands of followers throughout southern Africa.

He claims that he can “walk on air, make the ‘lame’ walk and cure HIV/Aids” and other diseases.

City Press witnessed Bushiri’s bodyguards refusing to grant police access to him.

Instead, Bushiri barked orders at the police telling them he “needs a report” before he could comply, referring to a search warrant or a subpoena.

The police tried to reason with Bushiri asking to be allowed to do their work because the complainant had laid charges against him.

In a bid to avoid controversy, police backed off.

“We were outnumbered by Bushiri’s bodyguards,” a police officer told City Press, adding that the pastor has “powerful connections”.

  1. Bodza ilo inu a Malawi 24 …mukungolemba without having the truth of the matter…eeeessshhhh…Nobody is above the Law .Police can apprehend even the president said the major 1

  2. It’s common sense to have bodyguards these days whether prophet or not munthu wamba

    Even in bible they had bodyguards

    Just a few verses Read Luke11:21
    1kings1-8
    2kings11:7-8
    chronicles 12-11

  3. Please fellow brethren, glory to God and peace on earth. “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Luke 6:37 NIV.
    Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand. Romans 14:4 NIV. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
    Matthew 7:3 NIV. Please let God do His work. Judgement does belong to us. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7 NIV. “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
    John 13:34‭-‬35 NIV. How can I judge if I am not all knowing, if I still need grace? Don’t you? Shalom, shalom, shalom.

  4. This is the laughing matter now,
    You people, why are bitting each other here?
    Most assuredly you are wrong.
    Sometimes you need to bung your mouth and it doesn’t mean that you are dull.
    With your truth and faith continure praying God will make it clear.
    Intelligent people are not always speak but they know where to be.

  5. Ngati ukuti azafa ifa yowawa iwe uzafa ifa yotani muoneni aaaa za ziii kumalimbana ndi azitumikili osamalimbana chitukuko bwanji anthu azipedza zintchito mkulimbana ndi munthu alindimapiko iwe ndi silipazi yomwe ulibe komazinazi kkkkkk

  8. Jesus hi never hard bodyguards

    If hi bereave God
    Hi most never be a fled ..as sun off God did …

  9. It is not surprising to hear this negative story from the Malawian media, Even the state president is jealous of this guy. No wonder Malawi is the poorest in the whole world.

    1 mafumu 22:29
    Tsono mfumu ya Israyeli ndi Yehosafati mfumu ya Yuda anakwera ku Ramoti Gileadi. 30Ndipo mfumu ya Israyeli inanena ndi Yehosafati, Ine ndidzadzizimbaitsa, ndi kulawa kunkhondo, koma bvala iwe zobvala zako zacifumu. Ndipo mfumu ya Israyeli inadzizimbaitsa, nilowa kunkhondo. 31Tsono mfumu ya Aramu idalamulira akapitao makumi atatu mphambu ziwiri za magareta ace, niti, Musaponyana ndi anthu ang’ono kapena akuru, koma ndi mfumu ya Israyeli yokha. 32Ndipo kunali, akapitao a magareta ataona Yehosafati, anati, Zedi uyu ndiye mfumu ya Israyeli imene, napotolokera kukaponyana naye; koma Yehosafati anapfuula. 33Ndipo pamene akapitao a magareta anaona kuti sindiye mfumu ya Israyeli, anabwerera osampitikitsa. 34Ndipo munthu anakoka uta wace ciponyeponye, nalasa mfumu ya Israyeli pakati pa maluma a maraya acitsulo; tsono ananena ndi mnyamata wa gareta wace, Tembenuza dzanja lako, nundicotse kunkhondo, popeza ndalasidwa.

  14. jusus was a humble man who didnt need any kind of protection as its case with morden false prophets like bushiri.if bushiri is true prophet he would have reduced himself to nothing(he would deny himself)

    • Oh.. Hell no no no maaan.JESUS WAS PROTECTED……one f his disciples took out a sword and cut an ear of one of those who were apprehending and saizing Jesus….when you read your bible…understand it man.God didn’t say you must not project yourself.David went to hide in the cave..with his army being afraid of Saul.Do you understand.

    • you are at it again man.like a lamb that is taken to be slaughtered, jesus didnt resist when his enemies came to arrest him neither his followers attempted a rescue.they all run away leaving jesus alone.

  15. kodi inu mumati Bushiri man of GOD.Kodi enafe tidalengedwa ndi satana?mumatanthauzanji? Tanvapo anthu otchuka akumangidwa like former world bank boss being arrested so who is bushiri afte all? if other pipo take him as their god heeeeee!! kaya zikunyasanidi ngati mwakiya mulondoleni komweko.Anzanu kutheba sanyengelera munthu akachimwa even atakhala ndi tap yotulutsa wine mmalo mwa madzi iwo amamanga ukachimwa ngati J Zuma adamukuwa in parliament.The main issue about this man is zimamveka kut ndiwa Satanic komaso zonse zimene amachita ndi za satanic osati zoitanira anthu kwa HEHOVA MULUNGU waAbraham Isake Yakobo komanso amene adaukitsa YESU KHRISTU kwakufa.Ngati ndizoona let him stop now.Body guards what for if he is from the living and true GOD why dont he let GOD protect him? is he another pope? is he pope bushiri? I ena ziwanyasa yaaa let it be but ndani sachimwa? kulapa kenako mkumachita chifuniro cha YEHOVA komaso chipulumutso ndi YESU osati zinazi,gehena ndi wa satana.

  16. Why does the so called man of God use hired human protection instead of Angels to give him the needed protection? I really wonder which God he claims to believe in. Fake men of God like bushiri really need human protection because they know that their god cannot protect them. Continue fooling the masses who do not want to search the Scriptures for themselves.

  17. Kodi bwanji osamakambako za ena monse munayambira kumunyoza munthuyi .Agawe chimanga kwa osauka walakwitsa kwenikweni mukufuna azitani?Talembani zina tinveko

  18. Kodi bwanji osamakambako za ena monse munayambira kumunyoza munthuyi .Agawe chimanga kwa osauka walakwitsa kwenikweni mukufuna azitani?Talembani zina tinveko

  19. Bushiriyu mukut mneneri wamulungu mwina wasatan km yesu sankayenda ndi magud ndiye ndookhulupilila mulungu mmmmm kaya tidzaonana tsiku lachiweruzo ndintchito zathu

  20. Why does a man of God need protection,this is just another charlatan or just more fake news! SAPS did not flee, we get untruths all the time. He would have been charged by now.

  21. The dumbest people I know are those who claim they know it all. If there’s a human being that thinks knows it all is a Malawian. I tell you when you really know somebody you can’t hate them. Or maybe it’s just that you can’t really know them until you stop hating them.. This just proves how much hatred most of our fellow Malawians have on the Man of God. If I were to ask you a question, how closer are you to God than the Man of God Prophet Shepherd Bushiri. It’s sad and embarrassing how some people are so jealous and intimidated by him that they only have negative things to say when they know absolutely nothing about him. I bet, If you haters saw him walk on water you would yell out that it was because he didn’t know how to swim. Manage your life. There’s just so much about yourself to handle and focuss on than somebody else life. He’s got his own life and a better life on top of that. You can hit your head on the rock, no matter how many times. You will never win, spiritually or physically. It’s just my advise for you Haters.

    • your so called prophet is the one looking for kak attention with fake miracles that does not enrich Christians lived,when did he last do am altar call?If your a Christian Stop ✋ following prophets,apostles,priests and other Church leaders but follow the Almighty God

    • Tell me which verse in the Bible where it says Jesus asked for consultation fees?and ask yourself why a man performing miracles but is so scared of death so much so that he has bodyguards even inside his practicing room(church)

    • People… I guess by now he needs to make some new Haters, the old ones are starting to like him. And for you Grace I wonder if you are writing or drawing, you don’t make sense. Say something…. How does his personal life affect you. Are you a member of his church? No? So where do you come in? Jo flava tell me which verse in the bible where it says you must attack men of God. Are you doing according to what the bible says? And where in the bible does your life refer to? Its God who can read the position of our hearts. If indeed the Prophet is cheating God why not wait for God to complain. Are you faster and smarter than God?

    • This is rubbish. You will only find this in Africa because of desperate and poor. If Elijah was a man of God and was protected by God. Why today’s man of God protected by armed man with Ak FA and pistols is God not protecting any more. Mufa ndiumphawi

    • I can feel the pain guys, but unfortunately you have no choice. He was born a Man of God and he shall die one. Where is your stand as a Christian. Muzayankha chani pa siku lomaliza. Kapaena muzizayankha za Bushiri?

    • aliyense adzayankha zake even ur purofeti adzayankhanso zamiyanda imene wayipeleka msembe kwamdyelekezi,open your eyes before it is too late uyuyu uyu mukapsyerapo zaziiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

    • I can sense the heat of anger from Jo. I understand. Not all men are the same. Osadandaula Madala vuto lanulo lizatha one day maso anu akazaseguka. They are the signs of jealousy and hatred.

    • This is the laughing matter now.
      You people, why are you bitting each other here?
      Most assuredly you are wrong,let God judge.
      Sometimes you need to bung your mouth.
      Intelligent people are not always speak but they know where to be.

    • Khenefi Chipeta they is no pain or hate here. But I am telling you facts. God said the only way to him is Jesus not busiri or tb joshua . Common sense is needed here. Everyone is a man/woman of God. This are fake prophets. The reason of worshiping God is to have eternal life not miracle money. Because of your laziness and stupid you don’t want to work but to have miracle money. This madness is only in Africa because you are lazy to think.

    • Mr Michael Mkandawire, you are indeed full of hate..why? If you don’t like somebody, stop following him up, stop watching his channels, get your life!! Don’t expose your small rebellious minds here….God has been using his prophets ever since from the bible …just go back to your Holy bible stiff necked human beings!!!

    • They is no prophet left since Jesus Christ was crucified. I don’t follow stupid things and I don’t watch rubbish channel. Eating snake, drinking petrol, eating grass all that rubbish. Buying water and pens for examination all that is bull kak. Lizzie Ndhlovu you want to hear what make you happy that is you problem. Repent now ask forgiveness. I have seen all these prophets and I will never go to their church. And here is Malawi 24 no bushiri page. I don’t follow kak. Like it or not I will never do that shit. Go to school and get yourself education then you will be rich. Work hard. Not this madness you are captured

    • ur advice has put me in tatas because each time i try to read the bible i never come across a verse that explains that jesus had body guards to protect him rather he was always there to provide people with security. so , if this ur so called a man of God why he normally arrange body guards divide them into shift of performing their duties of security to ur prophet. infact, if at all he is a prophet, how many prophesies he has made so far and turned them into a reality? my brother dont proclaim about jelous here but the truth of the matter is wide open to anybody and it is tangible. so dont bother urself to put him under ur armpit. we are not obligated to judge yes, but dont lead us astray because the scripture already foreseen of the last days and here we are. what else are u looking for? if ur having alion share of his earnings then u need to be more more careful. am done with u there. but always remember that the second advent of jesus is at hand.

    • Michael Mkandawire don’t raise your dirty voice, improve your argument. I can now feel the temperature, haters are reacting. People like you with irrational motives and illogical reasoning always end up by attacking and being personal in arguments. This is just a sign of anger. But guys, you have no choice. There’s a saying that says:
      Your life is a product of choices. I have a choice av made in life, to be a Christian under a church led by a powerful Man of God, Prophet Shepher Bushiri. And there’s nothing you can do about it.

    • Khenefi Chipeta seems you don’t get it. I have a right to believe a religious that I want. Don’t forget that this is Malawi 24 page not Bushiri page. If I was going to like and comment on Bushiri page that was going to be something. But here I can comment whatever I want to. And you can’t tell me how to comment. You can follow your prophet. Spray doom in my eyes and rub in eyes with chillies but I will never follow rubbish. If this don’t get you well kick the rock you will be fine

    • I never make the mistake of arguing with people for whose opinions I have no respect. And kodi a Hastings Shasha, ndekuti munthu kuyenda ndi ma bodyguard ndi tchimo?

    • Mpume and Omo, don’t be criticizing unless you get it. What are you trying to say. And more over you trying to hind behind my Comment. At the same time you don’t make sense.

    • So Khenefi Chipeta you don’t see wrong with bodyguard? If he is a man of God why does he trust bodyguard than God. And are you aware that a gun was designed to kill. And is a man of God have power to kill. Jesus didn’t have bodyguards. He had followers. His followers were not armed because he trusted God protection. But this madness is just show off. And his followers a stubborn like Khenefi Chipeta. You can see his comment that its an empty argument. He will never see any sense because he is blind and deaf. As for me I follow Jesus Christ, not just Jesus. And this Group will never mention that Jesus Christ, or Jehovah. They go to church for prosperity not deliverance. To my friend Khenefi Chipeta repent and accept Jesus Christ as your saviour. Have your name in the book of life. Car, house, children, money, gold etc are just extra blessings. But first my friend repent

    • Open your eyes. God said you will eat your sweat not miracle. That why my father sent me to school. To learn so that I will have a job or business not miracle. Most of the time are these guys who left std 8. Because you are desperate to be rich that’s why you believe in these stupid miracles. Nothing comes easily. Work hard God will help you. No miracle. So this madness of miracle money must stop right now

    • Kudzabwera aneneri nadzasocheletsa anthu ambiri,mau amenewa akupezeka m’baibulo. Kodi aneneri amenewa alipo kapena sadabwere? YESU akachilitsa munthu amati ”’USAKAUZE MUNTHU KAPENA ANTHU”’ kodi amkatanthauza chiyani?

  22. Ine wandikaniza kulowa mpingo wake chifukwa ndilibe ndalama yogulira annoint water ndipo ndili ndiumboni wankhani imeneyi.ndiwokhayo asatanic amene angamuyikire kumbuyo chifukwa ali limodzi.

  23. amalawi tangoganizani arendo onse ochoka maiko osiyanasina kumakam’peza bushiri,zikadakhala zuchitikira kumalawi kuno.kodi malawi idam’veka bwanji.pakachitika chinthu kwathu nikuvundula.ndie munthu wachoka m’dzikolanthu sitifuna zolakwikalo still kumamukambabe mulangidwa ndinu coz simudziwa zinsinsi zamulungu potionetsela bushiri

  24. There is no way there can be stand off between the man of God and the South African Police.Prophet Bushiri is not a militia leader or warlord.He is being persecuted and that is expected for every true man of God you must be the last people to write such falsehood. Check facts from him.He is in a foreign country and its unfortunate that some people can allow the devil to use them to malign and innocent person. They are jealousy of him and his achievements.

  25. Malawi this is fake news. Stop to disturb and threaten this man otherwise calamity will befall all all of you with evil plot against him Because the Bible says ‘touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm’ Therefore his anointing is there to bring you bad omen except you repent.

  26. Go deeper Major 1…teach the world that u r someboby untouchable and unstopable.If pple do not hate u then know that u r noboby in a society.The more u hate is the more u publicise and energise him.

  27. Don’t twist the story right now am watching prophetic channel the prophet talk about this and you are twisting the stories change for better you will never win popularity sheet

  28. Bushiriyo anathamangisa ma policewo chifukwa ninji, zamaboza basi, ndinkana anakuthawani amalawi,..-magine how many troubled amalawians could have been delivered from spritual hardships …God have mercy on us

  29. as i read this article,ar the sametime watching the very same prophet saying thatit was antonio who intimidated his worship team mambers one of them was James nee.the very same Antonio twisted the story saying ia the prophet who send them,the prophet was not in the hotel.malawian media you are crazy.

  30. He can do that only in Malawi olembawe ukunamiza agalu akwanu SA police its more advanced than ur police!!!! Even youur president or major 1 wanuyo amaziwa zimenezo

  31. anthu osa borner ndichoncho kumangoyipitsa mbiri ya anzanu bwanji osabona muzilemba nkhani zokhuza ufumu wakumwamba busy kumangonyoza mukhalira yomweyo yomangonyozayo
