CHARISMATIC Bushiri walks into Zanu PF factional fight


CHARISMATIC Malawian preacher Shepherd Bushiri has been sucked into Zanu PF’s succession wars in Zimbabwe after appearing on a video in which he tells State Security Minister Kembo Mohadi that he has a “promotion coming his way”.

Mohadi, a key functionary of the Lacoste faction in Zanu PF, has reportedly been promised the vice presidency by Emmerson Mnangagwa, who increasingly looks likely to succeed President Robert Mugabe after apparently dispatching the rival G40 faction.

Mnangagwa reportedly offered the other vice presidency to army chief General Constantine Chiwenga, as he builds an alliance for a post-Mugabe era.

Bushiri, who is based in South Africa, and refers to himself as a “Major Prophet”, stood Mohadi up in front of thousands of congregants before telling the Beitbridge East MP that an unnamed individual in Borrowdale, Harare, had consulted witch doctors in Chitungwiza to bring him harm.

“Nothing bad will happen to you. I’m seeing promotion coming your way; I’m seeing a crown on your head,” Bushiri tells Mohadi in the undated video which has gone viral online.

Mohadi, who according to Mugabe was considered for the vice presidency before losing out to Phelekezela Mphoko, nods approvingly and mumbles: “I receive, Man of God.”

Bushiri gave Mohadi a white handkerchief saying: “Anytime you see anything happening around you, use that handkerchief to pray.”

Mohadi, who is also told by the preacher that “when you leave here there will be a financial door… I’m seeing money coming to you,” reverently grasps the cloth, and bows.

On Monday, it emerged that a controversial Zanu PF activist and Mnangagwa loyalist Fidelis Fengu – through his Sibusiso Media and in collaboration with events company

Highshot Provisions – has organised a ‘Black Billionaire Breakfast Meeting’ in Harare for November 10 where Zimbabweans will pay US$250 to hear a motivational speech from Bushiri.

Mnangagwa is listed as the guest of honour at the event pencilled in for the Meikles Hotel in Harare, although we were unable to confirm last night if he would attend.
