  • Allegedly designed by a “prophet of God” named Shepherd Bushiri, a unique line of soap products called Lion of Judah claims it can wash away your sins.
  • It has two different scents, lavender and peach orchard, and is being sold for around $50 per bar.
  • Meanwhile, Bushiri denied he is selling the soap and called the advertisement “fake”.

A man who calls himself “Prophet Shepherd Bushiri,” is allegedly selling a soap bearing his photo, claiming that it can wash your sins away. To entice more people to buy the products, promoters are claiming that the Lion of Judah soap (also known as Bushiri Soap) will give them the free pass to do sinful acts during the day and then they can just cleanse themselves at night.

According to reports, the magical soap costs $50USD or 5,035 in Malawian Kwacha currency. As the soap advertisement circulated like wildfire around social media, netizens criticized the product saying that the strategy is “one way of the prophet to milk honey from the congregants”.

“Free to sin the whole day and cleanse yourself in the evening with this Bushiri soap” the soaps’ advertisement reads.

On his Facebook page, however, Bushiri, founder of Enlightened Christian Gathering Ministries in Malawi, slammed the said soap and denied that his church is selling such products. He explained that this is just another propaganda to “tarnish our name and the image of our ministry”.

“Beware of their propaganda against our ministry. All the images below are fake! They are doing this simply to tarnish our name and the image of our ministry,” he said on his Facebook page.

Bushiri also mentioned that he received reports just few months ago that there are promoters selling another Bushiri brand – the blood of Jesus and anointed pregnancy tests.

“But praise be to God we are bigger than this small propaganda,” he added.

On his page, church members can be seen having their own “anointing water/oil” in a small spray bottle. In his post, Bushiri instructed his followers to use the pray and “watch as the Spirit of God begins to move and touch,” them. He also said it is for their “deliverance.”

It remains unknown, however, if the anointed water is free or not.

The magical soap is not the first controversy that Bushiri encountered. Just recently, a former deputy minister of Zimbabwe Terence Mukupe, accused the preacher for having his wife pregnant. The basis of Mukupe’s allegations, he said, are screenshots of chats and messages purportedly between Bushiri and his wife.

Bushiri denied the claims, explaining that he never met Mukupe’s wife nor did they exchange text messages.

“Sadly this guy’s lies are part of a pattern of libel and slander that has been directed at me for over a decade,” defended Bushiri.

Bushiri is a famous religious leader in Malawi claiming to be the prophet of God. He has numerous followers in the country.

Often clad in suit and tie, Bushiri allegedly performs miracles by healing the sick.
