Johannesburg – The Goshen Farm in Mchinji, Malawi, led by Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, is predicting a bumper maize harvest, reports www.malawi24.com.
Prophet Bushiri and his wife Mary are fugitives from Justice in South Africa, where they are wanted for fraud and other crimes.
The pair are in a legal battle in a Malawi court to avoid possible extradition to South Africa from where they fled while on bail.
However, reports from Malawi this week suggest the Bushiri fugitives are doing just fine in their home country.
Prophet Bushiri’s spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo was quoted by www.malawi24.com as saying an inspection and assessment at the Goshen Farm in Mchinji has projected a possible production of 10 000 metric tonnes of maize.
Nyondo said the idea is to ensure that the magnificent Goshen City “lacks nothing”.
He said the farm will grow even more maize after the bumper harvest through irrigation.
“Our model is to build a city with an ecosystem that will coherently support each other. We believe through this we will create more jobs and support the country’s economy,” Nyondo was quoted as saying.
The publicist said developments at Goshen Farm underline earlier sentiments that Goshen City in Mangochi district was “currently open for business”.
Late last month, Goshen City launched a variety of products, including Goshen Cola, Goshen Satellite, Goshen perfume, Goshen Energy drink, Goshen Farms, and two new technologies – The Jesus Nation app and Major 1 Chat.
The first phase of Goshen City as a destination will be open in December this year, Nyondo said.
