He further indicated that ECG’s engagement in civic education and social dynamics, brings positive change and development a development he said has made the church a government partner, his Ministry in particular.
“As government, we recognize and appreciate the role played by the civil society and its stakeholders. It is with great pleasure that we salute the work and efforts of the ECG Church, as we soldier forward and upward to build a Malawi that will touch heaven and change our world.

Bushiri has been endorsed by several members of President Lazarus Chakwera’s cabinet such as Information Minister Gospel Kazako and Tourism Minister, Michael Usi.
