By DAVID KWALIMWA

A Malawian pastor, who refers to himself as “Prophet Shepherd Bushiri”, has taken to social media to flaunt his newly-acquired jet estimated to cost Sh 3.7 billion.

The pastor couldn’t hide his excitement after acquiring a personal jet, whose photos he shared with his 400,000 plus followers on Facebook.

“I am what God says I am. I was a born winner,” Bushiri was quoted as saying by Malawi’s Nyasa Times.

Pastor Bushiri is understood to be one of the richest men in Malawi. He recently revealed plans of opening a bank and mobile company in South Africa, where he is currently based.

The jet, a Gulf stream III, is similar to the one the Kenyan Government leased to transport the national football team for an assignment in Cape Verde last November.

Bushiri joins the list of flamboyant African pastors – including several from Kenya – who seem keen on displaying their lavish lifestyles on social media.
