Prophet Shephard Bushiri officiates Brown Mpinganjira wedding
Prophet Shephard Bushiri on Saturday, February 4, officiated over the wedding of Malawi veteran politician Brown Mpinganjira to his long term partner Harriet Moyo .
The wedding was attended by among others the estranged Vice President of Malawi Joyce Banda and was officiated Sunnyside Church of Bushiri’s Enlightened Christian Gathering Church.
A private wedding reception for close friends and relations followed later in the evening near Moneymen in Blantyre.
Mpinganjira has several children from a previous marriage.
Brown Mpinganjira who now fashions himself as a preacher is a senior member of People’s Party led by
Joyce Banda. His activities though are curtailed due to his colourful political and private history. Allegations of Corruption, nepotism and womanising have followed him since his role in founding of United Democratic Front (UDF).
He also once led the now-defunct National Democratic Party (NDA) which threatened to the then ruling party UDF, but greed and poor political leadership took hold of Mpinganjira and his colleagues leading to the disbanding of the party.
After dismantling his NDA party, Mpinganjira went back to UDF, but in a surprise move contested as presidential running mate to main opposition Malawi Congress Party leader John Tembo in the 2009 elections.
