The President of South Africa-based Shepherd Bushiri Investments (SBI) Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has once again come to the rescue of Malawi’s National Soccer team ‘The Flames’ which was about to pull out of African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Financially crippled Flames recently decided to give up on AFCON due lack of resources.
Bushiri, who is also leader and founder of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG), has offered to bankroll Flames’ AFCON exploits and has since asked the authorities to present their budget which will be scrutinised by his financial managers.
The Malawian born billionaire said that, “it has always been his wish to support the Flames because they are Malawi’s flag career in continental show pieces”.
The Flames are starting their AFCON campaign with a single fixture this year against Cameroon.
