Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of Enlighten Christian Gathering (ECG) church is today celebrating his 36th birthday, faceofmalawi can reveal.
The birthday comes barely weeks after Bushiri and his wife Mary were released from Police cell on bail on allegation of fraud and Money laundering charges.
Earlier this week, the South African Asset Forfeiture Unit (AFU) applied for Bushiri’s jet seizure arguing that that he fabricated loan agreement papers to acquire it.
This is contained in two affidavits seen by News24- one from a detective colonel attached to the Hawks and one from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) – detailing how cash was used to pay for the jet.
Although this is the case, Bushiri’s followers have taken the Man of God’s birthday to the social media wishing him well.
Writing on his official facebook page one of the veteran musicians in the country Lucius Banda hailed Bushiri for his charity works in Malawi.
“Happy Birthday Papa major one son of the soil, Our pride and My good Friend.
“For all the good things you have done for the poor in and outside Malawi, l will always respect and love you,” wrote Banda
He added: “After all is said and done you remain one of great people of our time.”
Bushiri’s wife also wrote: “Happy birthday the love of my life, happy birthday my everyday person, happy birthday my husband. I love loving you, I enjoy submitting to you and it is an honor to carry the great mantle upon you my Prophet.
“Happy birthday my Priest, happy birthday my voice and mentor, happy birthday Major1.
