One of the country’s renowned men of God, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri who is distributing maize to hunger-stricken families in the country has urged people to avoid associating his charitable works with politics.

He was speaking this in Thyolo on Saturday where he was distributing 25 kilogram bags of maize to 1,200 households in Traditional Authority (T.A) Mchilamwela in the district.

Bushiri said what he is doing is not about politics and that he is not a politician.

He said: “Don’t associate with my charitable works with politics. I am not a politician and I do not do politics. What I am doing is to serve the lives of people and it is because I put my country first.”

Bushiri who is the founder of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) of The Jesus Nation also disclosed that he has currently sent some trucks of maize to Karonga.

“As I am talking to you, we have sent some trucks of maize to Karonga District,” he said.

On his part, Thyolo Central legislator Ben Phiri thanked Bushiri for the kind gesture.

A beneficiary Esther Mtika, 75, from Andilepo Village said she has been sleeping on an empty stomach for three days.

“Today, I will taste nsima. This donation is a miracle to me,” she said.

The man of God through his EGC church is expected to distribute 17 000 metric tonnes of maize to benefit one million people across the country.

He has so far, distributed maize to Ntcheu, Lilongwe, and Thyolo districts.
