Malawi Youths whom Prophet Shepherd Bushiri promised to give them a starter up capital amounting to MK20 Million the amount which is nearer US$27,000, have told the man of God to be honest with the pledge.
The Youths have expressed worrisome over Bushiri’s unsound promises arguing that better the Man of God say the truth that the funds are not available unlike lies.
This follows the youth through Christian Youth Association of Malawi (CYAMA) submission of the project proposal Bushiri office requested.
But two months now has elapsed without any tangible response from the man of God.
CYAM Executive Director Christopher Chimangeni told the Press on Saturday that youths have lost trust in Bushiri’s promises.
Chimangeni has however asked Prophet Bushiri to be honest with the youths than meddling with lies on the pledge.
He however wondered as to why Bushiri office keep on requesting business plan when on several occasion has been done but nothing tangible comes out of it.
“After we raised the matter to media three months, its when Bushiri office came out requesting us to submit another business plan just to seek public attention that are considerate, but nothing.
“Major 1 must be clear on the promise he made to us not meddling innocent youths with lies. This promise is now clocking three years waiting in vain. Enough of this. We have been troubled enough,” fumed Chimangeni.
He adds, “Fellow youths continue accusing me that I have done nothing delaying them to receive the money which is not true hence engaging you the media that if indeed is the man of God’s delays we will know exactly what happened to the promise,” worries Chimangeni.
Prophet Bushiri’s Spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo has been assuring this publication that his office is working on the promise.
Nyondo said his office might be pre-occupied with other business hence the delays of the pledge.
Bushiri promised the funds when he made a business presentation during the Christian Youths Business Symposium which took place in Blantyre on 28 January, 2017.
In January 2017 CYAMA organized a business symposium in Malawi’s commercial capital Blantyre where it was targeting youths that are passionate about venturing into entrepreneurship.
After the symposium, CYAMA’s Chimangeni called the symposium very successful and that they had secured entrepreneurship deals from both individuals and private sector ready to bankroll the youth with viable business concepts.
But since then, nothing has been done on the ground.The youth who submitted business proposals has faulted CYAMA for being silent yet pledges and deals were announced soon after the symposium.
Among other initiatives that came due to the symposium, he cited the AU Youth Initiative and Malawi government involved with CYAMA that will see its representative going to China for entrepreneurship training.
