Renowned Malawi’s legal practitioner and former Attorney General, Ralph Kasambara SC, has joined Prophet Shepherd and Prophetess Mary Bushiri in mourning the death of their daughter, Israella, who died on Monday in Nairobi, Kenya.
Israella, aged 8, was blocked by immigration police when she, and three others accompanying her, went to board a chartered Airbus to Nairobi, Kenya where she had been receiving medical treatment.
Government eventually cleared Israella to travel to Kenya but by that time her condition had worsened. She was denied right to access medical care and the freedom to leave the country when she needed it most.
Kasambara said Israella was denied the right to life at the youthful age of 8, adding her right to life was sacrificed at the altar of political expedience and heavy-handed maladministration.
…”The Lord gave, the Lord has taken away. May his name be praised Job 1:21, Israella now joins the army of little angels in heaven, may her gentle soul rest in eternal peace…,’’ reads Kasambara’s writings on the wall.
Writing on his Facebook page, Prophet Bushiri said it is very disheartening and sad that his daughter had become a victim of the persecutions that the Bushiri family are facing from South Africa, saying he and his wife, have chosen not to mourn her but to celebrate her life, believing that the devil could take the life of his daughter.
…”I ask the family, to join not in mourning as those without hope but in celebrating the life of saint Israella, she shall always be remembered and forever carried in their hearts…,’’ reads Bushiri’s writing on the wall.
He said Israella was a strong young girl who loved to worship and serve God despite her young age saying she was brilliant in her speech and possessed a divine excellency in the way she spoke and even tackled her studies.
Prophet Bushiri said when she spoke to the doctor in Nairobi, Kenya, he highlighted that if she had not been blocked at the airport the first time she needed to travel to Kenya for medical assistance, she would not have passed on, quoting the Holy Book of 1 Thessalonians 4; 13….”Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uniformed about these who sleep in death so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope….,”
Israella had been battling a lung infection in the Intensive Care Unit [ICU] for the past two weeks, Prophet Bushiri said he personally believe doctors treat but it is God who heals, believing that his daughter would be perfectly healed in Jesus name and believe that by His stripes she was healed.
