The Enlighten Christian Gathering (ECG) church says it is swiftly in search for a new venue to host it’s 2020 Miracle night Crossover as government has reversed the earlier accreditation to have the event hosted at Bingu National Stadium.
ECG planned to conduct the 2020 crossover night in Malawi as the leader of the church Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is in the country having fled from South Africa where he is undergoing trial on two different cases of flaud and money laundering of about K6-billion.
However government has cancelled it’s earlier accreditation citing COVID-19 and upcoming facility maintance as the main reasons for the flesh decision.
According to the statement made available to Zambuye.com the decision has been derived after further consultations with all relevant stakeholders, whereby it has been noted the stadium may not be able to host the event.
The statement highlight; “considering the fact that despite reducing the number of participants the event is likely to attract people beyond even normal capacity of the stadium. This will contravene COVID-19 pandemic preventive measures”
It further explain that the stadium is to undergo maintenance in preparation for CAF inspection programmed to happen in early January 2021.
“At the time of inspection management may not have enough time to restore the stadium to it’s normal status due to anticipated damages and losses during your function, it takes time to conduct such restorations as proved from previous experiences.”
Confirming on the development through the Church’s official Facebook page ECG says it has received the letter from the BNS management in Malawi about the cancelation of hosting the Miracle Night Crossover on 31 December 2020.
ECG says; “meanwhile our church administration is swiftly and, with necessary urgency and speed, acutely handling the matter and, therefore, we appeal for calm to all our members and followers under the circumstances.”
