SELF-PROCLAIMED Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has announced that this daughter Israella Bushiri has passed away. “It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing on of my daughter, Israella Bushiri. 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 wrote on his Facebook page on Monday morning.
Bushiri said Israella was born during a time when he and his wife, Mary, were experiencing challenges. She had been in hospital for weeks, battling a severe lung infection. Earlier this month, it was announced that her illness had worsened and she was transferred to ICU. He said Israella was a strong young girl who loved to worship and serve God, despite her young age.
“She has lived her life witnessing what it means to fight and labor for the Lord despite trials and battles. She came at a time when we really needed her and through it all, she offered my wife and I, including the entire church great comfort and enlightenment,” Bushiri said.
Bushiri will be holding a special address at midday in celebration of Israella’s life. “She shall always be remembered and forever carried in our hearts,” Bushiri said. Their extradition trial continues in Malawi. Bushiri further faces eight counts of rape, dating from 2016. #ladi_jaja?
