Prophet Shepherd Huxley Bushiri who was born on 20 February 1983, also known as “Major One” or “the Prophet”, is a South Africa-based preacher originally from Malawi.
He founded and leads a Christian church known as the Enlightened Christian Gathering, based in Pretoria, South Africa and with branches in other African countries. Major One is married to [Mary Bushiri affectionately referred to as “Mama” or “mummy” by congregants with whom he has two daughters.

In response to questions over the source of his wealth, he has said “I am a businessman and that is separate from being a prophet. My prosperity is from private businesses. Such questions are not asked from leaders of white churches but when an African man prospers, then it’s a problem….”
