Meet Malawian Billionaire Prophet Who 'Walks On Air'

He can fill sports stadiums with tens of thousands of his followers - followers who are prepared to travel across the world to see him in person. He says he has cured people of HIV, made the blind see, changed the fortunes of the impoverished. He has on at least one occasion, released a video claiming to show himself walking on air  which received worldwide ridicule. Not forgetting the video footage from his church service where he claimed to be capturing spiritual images on his iPad which people say was poorly stage-managed. This is none other than Malawian 'billionaire prophet' Shepherd Bushiri.
