Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church founder Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has hailed President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika for the prestigious Great Leadership Award and Medal of Honor in recognition of his ‘exceptional leadership.’

Mutharika was given a ward on Thursday African Leadership Magazine in United States of America (USA) in the just ended United Nation General Assembly (UNGA).

Writing on his official Facebook page, Bushiri said Mutharika’s award placed the country on World map.

“In commencement of my day today, I would like to congratulate Malawi President, Professor Peter Mutharika for the prestigious Great Leadership Award and Medal of Honor in recognition of his ‘exceptional leadership.’

“This is a good news to Malawi as a country and I am particularly happy that, as Malawian, he has put our great and successful nation on the world map once again, all curtsey of his great efforts to Make Malawi a prosperous nation,” wrote Bushiri.

He added: “I believe in recognizing the efforts of others. A person can never be a failure at everything, this award simply shows that our president has demonstrated great visions in some areas to get recognized internationally by the African Leadership Magazine which according to reports, has also awarded other great African Leaders.”

Bushiri further said that it has always been his prayer that Malawi should be known globally for the good reasons above the usual African sad news.

African Leadership Magazine conferred on Mutharika the African Leadership Award and Medal of Honour in recognition of his outstanding posturing as one of the continent’s thought leaders.

The Magazines also recognized other leaders such as former presidents Hifikepunye Pohamba of Namibia, Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria, John Kufuor of Ghana, Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania and Mo Ibrahim, founder of Mo Ibrahim Prize for Leadership, United Kingdom-based magazine’s publisher and chief executive officer Ken Giami said the President was recognised for his “outstanding posturing” as one of Africa’s most distinguished thought leaders and champion of the masses.
