One of the richest pastors in Africa and the Leader & founder of the Enlightened Christian Gathering Church, Prophet Sheperd Bushiri has acquired a third private jet in a space of two years.
The unveiling ceremony of the new jet ZS-VIP was by the biggest Company of Aviation NAC in South Africa on Wednesday, January 6. The handover was presided over by Gulf Stream Manager Larry Flynn. Bushiri received a certificate from Flynn for becoming the youngest buyer of Gulf Stream jet.
The pastor who is popularly referred to as "Major 1" of 'Papa in Christian cycles dedicated the new jet to all the people who follow him and understand vision.
He posted photos of the new jet on his Facebook page. When a follower criticised him for spending money that could have been used to help the poor, Bushiri replied:"When are you going to sell your phone which you have used to type here and give the money to the poor?"
In a phone interview with Nyasa Times after the ceremony, the very excited Bushiri said:
"I am a man of God. I believe I need to live by example. I teach the word that strenghtens the faith of all. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me', and that is exactly what I am doing now. I am what God says I am and not how other people judge me."
