Dowa East MP drag Major Pophet Sheperd Bushiri to court
Dowa East MP Bauleni Manna has sued the self-styled Major Prophet Shepered Bushiri claiming undisclosed millions for defamation after he allegedly prophesized on MBC TV that a woman had aborted his two months pregnancy.
The woman Taonga Jamali was employed by Bushiri as his Secretary and she is named first defendant in the classic law suit that will determine the future of Bushiri who was raised controversy over his claims to have prophetic powers.
Zodiak Broadcasting Corporation last month claimed Bushiri who is called as Major Prophet lied to his congregation at Masintha ground when he claimed a reporter from the station was at his prayer rally after being queried about finances.
Bushiri is named as a second defendant, while Shepered Bushiri Ministries are third defendant, ECG Church and the Malawi Broadcasting Coporation is the fourth and fifth defendant respectively.
The MP through his Laywers filed the summons this afternoon at the Lilongwe High Court claiming that the broadcast of the alleged prophecy on 17th July 2012 was a personal vendetta after Jamali had warned him that she will deal with him after she featured in one of his music videos.
The recording of the programme which he claims will be played in court quotes Bushiri claiming that he had mentioned the MPs music name of Dr. Cloud to prove to him that he was a Man of God, accusing the MP of not believing in his powers.
The full summons will be posted here in due course….
