The Malawian police has issued a new arrest warrant for controversial millionaire Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Prophetess Mary Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering.
Meanwhile, the Malawian authorities had previously stopped members of the Prophet’s family from leaving the country for Kenya, the police stormed his home but could not find him and his wife, Mary.
National Police spokesperson James Kadadzera confirmed the new warrant of arrest that was issued to fugitive Prophet Bushiri and his wife to Malawitalk.
The Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services spokesperson Martin Gongolo, also explained that the police stopped Bushiri’s family from traveling because they were suspecting that the preacher and his wife were fleeing the country and wanted to send their children away first.
Bushiri and his wife fled South Africa last year while on bail. They are wanted in Pretoria on a raft of charges, including fraud and money-laundering.
Efforts to extradite Bushiri and his wife from Malawi to South Africa proved futile last year. Their extradition hearing is however set for 8th of March 2021.
