Police are investigating a link between the killing of people with albinism in Malawi and the blood that Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has started selling as a new product in his spiritual machinations, disclosed Malawi Independant.
Sources within the police establishment have whispered to Malawi Independant they have been tipped that the blood being sold as the blood of Jesus by the self glorifying prophet is costing the lives of albinos in Malawi.
“The investigation will try to see whether there is indeed a connection,” said the police source who is part of the investigative team.
“The coincidence is very interesting indeed. The introduction of blood as a product in his spiritual schemes comes at a time when people with albinism are missing or being killed outright,” he added.
The Daily Times newspaper of South Africa wrote last week that he founder and leader of ECG ministries Prophet Shepherd ‘Major 1’ Bushiri has launched the “blood of Jesus” which is being sold in 500ml and 750ml plastic bottles.
One congregant who confessed to be a loyal member of ECG ministries revealed that the blood heals every calamity and problems.
We have been using anointing oil which is called “The Lion of Judah” before and we have been using anointed mantles, bracelets and DVDs but this time the power is released. Major 1 introduced “The Blood of Jesus” which is real blood of Jesus which was extracted at Calvary when the Son of God was crucified.
“As sons and daughters of Major 1 we don’t really care what people will say, we understand this revelation as a ministry (ECG family), people are on the move to drag our fathers name into disrepute but God elevated him to address our problems.
“The blood of Jesus is being sold at our worship center the smallest bottles 500ml are costs R20 000 and the 750ml bottle costs R30 000. We don’t care about the price but the results, as we are speaking the Blood of Jesus has resurrected reported five people and healed hundreds since launch.
Efforts to get a comment from ECG spokesperson were fruitless, since he is reported to be in Mauritius on holiday.
Observers have wondered how the blood of Jesus, whose crucifixion is believed to have happened over 2000 years ago, could be preserved over all these years to still be fresh today.
“Where was this blood kept?” wondered one observer who did not want to be named for fear of reprisals from Bushiri’s men.
