Copperbelt minister Bowman Lusambo has issued a seven day ultimatum to preacher man Shepherd Bushiri to apologize or risk losing his business licence in Zambia. Bushiri has caused a stir after taking on Religious affairs minister Godfridah Shumaili for allegedly blocking his ‘spiritual’ father from entering Zambia. The Malawian preacher was expected in Zambia last Wednesday but grew cold feet when the government warned he will be flashed out like a ‘fly’. Since Bushiri’s tantrums, Patriotic Front officials have taken turns to outdoor each other on ‘who is the who’ of taking drama. Lusambo becomes the latest to add his voice by threatening to end Bushiri’s investments. Bushiri is investing in mines on the Copperbelt where he is trading in Emeralds. BELOW IS LUSAMBO’S STATEMENT Press statement for Immediate Release BUSHIRI MUST APOLOGISE OR RISK HAVING HIS INVESTMENT LICENCE REVOKED NDOLA, May 20 2017— As Minister for Copperbelt, I have keenly followed the issue of Prophet Shepherd Bushiri with interest especially that Bushiri is operating an emerald mine in Lufwanyama District. From the onset, I should state that the remarks attributed to Bushiri directed at National Affairs and Religious Minister Reverend Godfridah Sumaili and some senior clergymen in Zambia are unfortunate. I find the attacks especially against Hon. Rev. Sumaili by Bushiri distasteful and lacking justification. I believe that Bushiri had no locus standi to attack Hon. Rev. Sumaili in the manner he did. Bushiri should be made aware that the Reverend he has chosen to publicly rebuke is a high ranking government official in the administration of His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and therefore deserves the highest form of respect. As His Excellency Lungu correctly pointed out, Zambia just like any other country reserves the express right to admit or turn down any visitor as deemed it by the immigration authorities. As distasteful the attacks from Bushiri are, they have exposed him to the world as an ignorant, self-serving and egoistic man who has no regard for other country’s laws and regulations. The other important lesson i should draw Bushiri to is that in public administration or any other organised setting, there is what is called collective responsibility. Thus, by admonishing Rev. Sumaili publicly, Bushiri has elected to attack the Republic of Zambia and all its people. It therefore goes without saying that as an investor, Bushiri has breached the provisions of his investment code. As Government, we will carry out a forensic audit on the operations of the emerald mine owned by Bushiri as part of measures to ensure that the interests of the Zambian people are safeguarded. I am hereby issuing a seven-day ultimatum for Bushiri to tender an apology to Rev. Sumaili, the Zambian people in general and the people of Lufwanyama in particular. Failure by Bushiri to apology will attract sanctions which I will recommend to the Ministry of Mines including the possible revocation of his mining licence. As much as the Zambian Government is keen on promoting both local and foreign investment, the guiding principle still remains that the national interests should be the corner stone of any such engagements.
