Bushiris in Malawi Court Today
After spending a night in a Police cell at Lumbadzi Police Station, self-acclaimed Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary are expected to appear before the Lilongwe Magistrate Court this afternoon, where they will be formally told why they were arrested.
National Police Spokesperson James Kadadzera told Zodiak online that the Bushiris will be taken to court when prosecutors complete all paper works.
“Our prosecutors are working on the paperwork which is necessary before we take the suspects to court.
"We are confident they (prosecutors) will be done in good time so that we take the two suspects to court this afternoon.”
Bushiri and his wife Mary are on the Interpol wanted list for fraud and money laundering offenses allegedly committed in South Africa.
They escaped from the rainbow nation last week citing security concerns. Bushiri also said he wanted to reach out to the government of Malawi to help him get a fair trial in the foreign nation.
The Pretoria Magistrate court in South Africa has since issued a warrant of arrest for the Bushiris who jumped bail.
Two-handed themselves to Police on Wednesday morning and Malawian authorities are now reviewing the extradition process for the two to South Africa.
