Prophet Shepherd Bushiri's jet setting days may soon be over as the Asset Forfeiture Unit has attached his private jet. This application forms part of the investigation into Bushiri and his wife, who have been accused of several crimes including money laundering and fraud.
The Hawks and AFU have filed an application to have the R20 million private jet, owned by Shepherd Bushiri and his wife, attached as a part of their investigation.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the prophet and his wife, Mary Bushiri, stand accused of money laundering and fraud and have been released on bail to the tune of R100 000 each.
The infamous duo have yet to respond to this move from the Hawks according to their spokesman Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.
According to The Citizen, the couple have been accused of several allegations, including contravening the Exchange Control Regulations Act in relation to over $1 million worth of foreign currency.
Despite the serious nature of these allegations the pair have enjoyed the support from their following, with crowds gathering outside of the court to cheer the pair on.
