Bushiri vs TB Joshua Which Is Fake? - Opinion


Shepherd Bushiri, better known as Major 1, is a Malawian Christian preacher, self-proclaimed prophet, businessman, motivational speaker, and author who was born on February 20, 1983.


He formed and heads the Enlightened Christian Gathering, a Christian non-denominational charismatic evangelical church in South Africa.

 The church's headquarters are in Pretoria, South Africa, and it has branches throughout Africa and the world. Every day, tens of thousands of people flock to the church. He describes the church as a Prophetic Ministry founded on the belief that "God cares and loves individuals and desires to speak directly to them."

 Bushiri has claimed to be able to "cure HIV." He retorted that he had never produced a miracle in his life because only Jesus has the ability to do so. Despite this, Botswana temporarily barred him from entering the country owing to untested miraculous claims, before courts concluded that the ECG church could continue to operate in the country. He used to be able to enter Botswana whenever he wanted, but now he must apply for a visa every time he wants to visit.

TB Joshua

 Temitope Balogun. Joshua was a Nigerian charismatic pastor, televangelist, and philanthropist who lived from June 12, 1963, to June 5, 2021. He was the founder and leader of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), a Christian megachurch that broadcasts on Emmanuel TV from Lagos.

In 2011, many UK news outlets reported that at least three HIV-positive patients in London died after their pastors advised them to stop taking life-saving medications. Although the three in issue have no verifiable link to SCOAN, the HIV prevention charity African Health Policy Network (AHPN) believes that SCOAN "may" be one of those engaging in such practices.

 Joshua anticipated Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 US election incorrectly. After this prophecy failed to come true, with Donald Trump winning the election, Joshua clarified that he was referring to Clinton's victory in the popular vote, and that any misunderstanding stemmed from a lack of "spiritual knowledge."


COVID-19, according to Joshua, will be phased down globally on March 27, 2020.

Both these prophets have got backlash from people saying they are fake prophets, if this is true. Which one is the fake prophet?
