I Am Bishop I Makamu: Viewers debate over the Bishop’s lifestyle

Tuesday night’s episode of I Am Bishop I Makamu saw the Bishop supporting a friend, as well as visiting his mother who expressed joy at her son’s religious journey.

The latest episode of Moja Love’s I Am Bishop I Makamu, which aired on Tuesday, 27 August 2019, saw the religious leader supporting his friend and fellow preacher, Sipho Makhabane, at a major event. The Bishop also visited his mother, who reminded him of how proud she was of all his accomplishments. The episode also revealed the new set for an upcoming show from the Bishop, with the set being designed by his wife.

Viewers commented on the episode on social media, with many questioning if his philanthropic efforts are just for camera, as he seems to be living a life of luxury – with money he could be sharing with the poor. Carlos Dhlamini commented with, “Instead of driving your sports car to your mother’s small house, [buy] her a home which she can live in forever.” Russel Mukondwa, amongst others, defended the Bishop by stating, “I am intrigued by how people are upset over a Man of God being rich and living the finer life. So you people think Christianity is only about being poor and living a very miserable life? God blesses his servants, even the Bible says so.”

The reality series is described as an introduction to the man to whom a few people have access, away from the pulpit. Bishop I Makamu is known to many as a religious leader who preaches to his congregation about Christianity, empowering them with his teachings through his sermons.

I Am Bishop I Makamu airs on Tuesdays at 22:00 on Moja Love, DStv channel 157.
