Malawian-born Prophet, Shepherd Bushiri is a spiritual leader, first, and–of course, a businessperson and a philanthropist. His rare skills of leadership exude an enigma not easy to decode. One thing that is painstakingly clear is that he is immensely blessed and anointed for success.
Major 1, as he is popularly known boasts of a conglomerate, Shepherd Bushiri Investments (SBI) with interests in South Africa, Dubai, the United Kingdom and the United States to mention but a few. SBI business portfolio includes but is not limited to telecommunications, mining, hotels, construction, consultancy, manufacturing and retail.
The man of cloth is a cut above the rest and far ahead of his contemporaries. His pace setting successes are, however, attributed as many analysts have submitted to his undue advantage namely, his prophetic gift and contact list. Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has numerous closed encounters with heads of states, diplomats, artists and global business leaders. Such access has enabled him to lend money to governments, which undertaking has realised for him untold profits.
Interestingly, Major 1 has a different appreciation. He regards his viewpoint as that from a mountain top perspective. His business acumen did not come by matriculation into any elite business school nor was it accidental. By his own admission, he is a product of his spiritual father, the highly acclaimed Zimbabwean-born British national, Prophet Uebert Angel.
Prophet Uebert Angel, affectionately known as Emeritus or the Don Corleone of the largest prophetic mafia is himself an award-winning business maverick and a serial investor seen rubbing shoulders with highly influential individuals such as Nathaniel Rothschild, Eric Danziger (CEO of Trump Hotels) and Pastor J Wojacek. Emeritus unapologetically exudes irresistible elegance and is a debonair gentleman.
One therefore, argues that the same qualities found also in Prophet Shepherd Bushiri cannot be coincidental. They are a result of a clear, deliberate and systematically concocted mentoring strategy.
In reference to his spiritual son’s property that houses SB Hotels, Prophet Angel said, “When we talk of prosperity in our family to us it’s not a perception. It is a REALITY. Every building, land and even the mountains in that pic are HIS…”Resultantly, Major 1’s leadership astuteness both in business and in ministry is idiosyncratic and his quickness of apprehension exceedingly impressive.
Prophet Shepherd Bushiri in his usual modesty is convinced that his wife, Prophetess Mary Bushiri, formerly an accountant is the reason why they are successful. His wife is the CEO of the SBI, a vantage position which has seen her execute and conclude multi-million dollar deals effectively. Together they are the leaders the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) arguably the biggest church in Southern Africa. Through this ministry they have raised thousands of millionaires and assisted the disadvantaged relentlessly all around the world through Beacon of Hope, the charity arm of the ministry.
Family is to Major 1 central and his point of departure as he executes his mandate. It couches the reason for doing business. In a statement he once pointed out that, “Apart from being a Prophet, I am a human being with a responsibility. I have a wife and kids. These are not achieved by being a man of God. These are achieved physically.”
For him this transcends his biologically family into the Kingdom of God within which he is a perennial financier. This partly informs why his 2018 Global Prophetic Tour was a success. The tour, premised on harvesting two millions souls for Christ was a major success as it exceeded the set target. Whether by default or design, Major 1 is a Prophet and businessman of nite.
