Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) leader Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has challenged Malawi political leaders that people of Malawi cannot go to bed on politics.
‚ÄúThe wonderful people of Malawi do not eat politics. They eat food,‚ÄĚ he wrote on his Facebook page.
Bushiri, through Shepherd Bushiri Foundation, is currently selling maize at the cheapest price of MK100 per kilogram, MK5,000 per 50kg.
Seven districts have already benefited from the initiative. the districts include Thyolo, Phalombe, Balaka, Mangochi, Ntcheu, Salima and Mzimba.
‚ÄúThe food I am selling at the cheapest price across the country is not meant to personally benefit any politician or businessman, neither is it meant to appease the egos of bureaucrats and king makers. Nobody should ride the wave of these gestures of goodwill to advance their own interests,I hereby humbly request and warn those at the forefront of this mischief to stop forthwith.‚ÄĚ wrote Bushiri.
It is not clear as to who Bushiri was targeting but he empathizes that his move of helping Malawians should not be mixed with politics.
‚ÄúIn fact, we should not even be discussing politics when people are dying of hunger. We should not discuss political ambitions, strategy, or benefit when people are suffering all over Malawi,‚ÄĚ he wrote.
Malawi has been greatly hit by hunger as most Malawians are sleeping with empty berries.
