Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, Enlightened Christian Gathering Church (ECG) leader last week said God showed him a vision in which Zimbabwe will build up to the heights attained by Dubai in the UAE in six years.
The Major One, as he is reverently called, made the spectacular revelation during a church service attended by about 20 000 people at the Pretoria Show Grounds in South Africa.
In the prophecy, the preacher said,
“The sleeping giant is going to rise. You have not seen what God is about to do in Zimbabwe. I am seeing a new city which is like Dubai, I am seeing a new city. I had a vision. It will look like Dubai and God said to me I am about to bless this land.
God said tell the people who are struggling in other countries, that they are about to return home and be rich in their homeland. Zimbabwe is about to become rich because God is working on that country.
Remember my word, my prophecy, in the next six years from now, you will see something that looks like Dubai being built in Zimbabwe. I saw the roads in this city, I saw the buildings, wonderful things about this city. God is about to do something, He will do with not with an individual but with Zimbabweans. Not one woman, not one politician but all of them together. God is doing a new thing in Zimbabwe.
Raise your hands and pray for the nation of Zimbabwe. I will bless Zimbabwe, says the Lord. God will rise in His power and bless the people of Zimbabwe. They will not cry anymore. I see the land which will take away the shame of Africa. Zimbabwe is about to be blessed. God is restoring Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe is a unique sleeping giant. It’s not the first time that I have said this. God has remembered the apple of his eye and the country is now sitting on the foot of prosperity.
I have come to discover that sometimes the battle is more personal that we assume. Sometimes, the battles we face have nothing to do with us doing wrong but they are there to remind us of who God has called us to be.
It’s as though God keeps trying to prove that the call is undefeatable by nothing else but His hand. So I wear my scars for all to see, as I prove that Major is not a title but a responsibility.’
Since the prophecy aired out, Bushiri has been called a lot of things as many people concede that his oracle defies logic according to Zimbabwean’s current state. Some called him a ‘humiliated Malawian white suite soothsayer’ while others described his sermon as void of substance.
One of his biggest critic @AdvBarryRoux upon hearing the news tweeted that the prophet who has been wrangled in money laundering charges in his current location in South Africa was eyeing for Zimbabwe as his next stop.
South Africa is becoming too hot for Crooked Shepherd Bushiri, my sources tell me that he is looking at moving to Zimbabwe hence his funny prophecies about Zimbabwe becoming Africa’s new Dubai.

Bushiri’s external media and content relations manager, Mr Maynard Manyowa, however, came into his defence and was cited in the weekly tabloid Sunday Mail saying;
“Major One is apolitical. He prays for the current leadership as instructed by the Bible and supports the people of Zimbabwe and the Government. He believes in the leaders to take Zimbabwe to the promised land as God showed him in a vision.”
