Bushiri ‘survives’ assassination attempt: Attacks South Africa police for not coming to his aid

Did Major 1 sacrifice his driver as bait?

Shepherd Bushiri

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri claims to have survived an assassination attempt on his life after failing to foresee the incidence. Prophet Bushiri says he only survived after being alerted of the attack by well-wishers.

Posting on his social media platforms, the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church leader claimed that assailants armed to the teeth pulled his car, only to be disappointed of what they found.

“I have just survived an attempted assassination where we were held at a gun point. More details will follow – and if possible, a video footage of how my car was surrounded by hit men will be released” said Bushiri who previously hit the headlines for performing what experts said were doctored miracle stunts.

He once claimed to levitate in the air and ‘managed’ to capture angels on camera in his church only for video experts to claim the images were photoshopped.

Major 1 survives assassination attempt in South Africa

But in the post that he shared on Facebook this afternoon at exactly 12:25pm (GMT), Bushiri claims that despite being alerted, he left his driver to face the alleged assailants who were armed with guns.

“I was in a small unfamiliar car as I was alerted yesterday of the upcoming danger. I watched the whole scene including the guns being pointed at my driver”, claims Bushiri.

Last year, Bushiri claimed that Prophet Passion Java had hired gunmen to assassinate him. Java had prophesied that Bushiri would die last December. In retaliation, Bushiri called Java as a fake prophet.

Last February, Bushiri also claimed that his “wife [was] poisoned to within an inch of her life”.

While hinting at all alleged attempts on his life as connected, Bushiri did not single out Java as being behind the foiled assassination attempt.

Major 1, as the Malawian born prophet is widely known, also lambasted the South African police for failing to come to his aid.

“For some time now – as well as yesterday after receiving the alert – I have been alerting the authorities and high officials of the threats I’ve been receiving. However, as it has been for the past three years, their negligence leaves so much to be desired. Pray for us, we are facing alot of battles in this country but one day, the world will hear the side of our story.” ranted Bushiri who is renowned for hiring heavily armed security.

A section of the general public has been mocking him as to why a man who prides at foreseeing the future and claims to be under God’s protection still requires bodyguards.



  1. So, he watched as his driver was about to be shot and killed? Ok, this is alarming.

  2. We Thank God for your protection Major1 and we are standing behind you ALL the way.. Indeed as a South African, the level of urgency in our Police department is truly something to be questioned. And at times we may think its because Dad is foreign but actually even for us born and bread south Africans in this country we are disgraced by our Police department. And to answer those who keep asking stupid questions such as ” Why does Bushiri need Bodyguards if he claims to be a powerful Man of God”
    Jesus had disciples who walked by him all day and every day. In those days, there was no such thing as body guards. In todays time ,they are called “Body guards” Something people need to understand is that Dad was not called by man ,but He was called, anointed and chosen by God, and ONLY God has the final say upon his life. South Africa should stop talking and spreading false information and actually start to focus on the economy and well being of the country. ECG has changed the life’s of many and still continues to. ECG keeps raising the economy of South Africa but the government cant recognise that!..
    As South Africans we should be fighting the real enemy here which is Poverty and Poor Education facilities for our children- start rooting yourself in the bible and may you get revelation of how much God truly loves South Africa for sending His chosen Prophet to come and redeem us from sin and the snares of the enemy..

    Shalom !

    1. They were not bodyguards. Stop changing the Bible to suit your narrative. Ridiculous.

  3. We thank God for Protecting you MAJOR 1…. . We need you in this Planet to guide us in our spiritual needs . . May the almighty God be with you and protect you with your Family from Evil ones . We Love You PAPA
