Shepherd Bushiri’s 8-Year-Old Daughter Dies

"It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing on of my daughter, Israella Bushiri," he said in a post on social media. As a father, it was my desire to see her grow and serve the Lord. However, the will of God was for her to return back to Him."

He described his daughter as a strong young girl who loved to worship and serve God, despite her young age. Bushiri said he and his wife choose not to mourn her but to celebrate her life.  The couple were expected back in a Malawian court on Monday in their extradition case.  They had fled SA a week after being released on R200,000 bail by the Pretoria magistrate’s court.

The Bushiris and their co-accused - Landiwe Ntlokwana, Willah Mudolo and his wife Zethu - face charges of theft, money laundering and fraud in connection with an alleged R100m investment scheme.

Self-proclaimed prophet Shepherd Bushiri on Monday announced the death of his daughter, who had been hospitalised.

“It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing on of my daughter, Israella Bushiri,” he said in a post on social media. As a father, it was my desire to see her grow and serve the Lord. However, the will of God was for her to return back to Him.”

Bushiri said she had always offered his wife Mary and himself “great comfort and enlightenment”. Last month, the Enlightened Christian Gathering pastor’s daughters and mother-in-law were prevented from leaving Malawi to travel to Kenya. Within days, though, Israella was allowed to travel for treatment with her guardians.

The Malawian government said she required a bone marrow donation. On March 18, Bushiri said Israella had been battling a lung infection in the ICU for the previous two weeks.

On Monday, Bushiri said that a doctor had advised that if she had not been blocked at the airport the first time she needed to travel to Kenya for medical assistance, she may not have died. “It is very disheartening and sad, therefore, that my daughter has become a victim of the persecutions that we are facing from SA,” he said.

He described his daughter as a strong young girl who loved to worship and serve God, despite her young age. Bushiri said he and his wife choose not to mourn her but to celebrate her life.
