- South Africans have flocked to social media to share their thoughts on the fact that the Bushiris has been granted bail
- It was earlier reported by Briefly.co.za that the couple had been released on R200k bail each
- South African citizens and Twitter users do not seem happy about the news and have shared a number of thoughts online
Earlier today, Briefly.co.za reported that controversial church leaders, Shepherd "Major 1" and his wife Mary Bushiri have been released on R200k bail following nearly four weeks of detainment and delayed bail hearings.
The couple was held on charges related to fraud, money laundering, and theft. They are also said to be in South Africa illegally based on allegations of having presented fake visa documents for which certain Home Affairs officials have been suspended.
South Africans and those following the case have not taken the news of their release lightly. In the last couple of weeks, many of them took to social media to express their delight over the fact that the couple had received delays in their bail hearing.
This time they have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the latest development in the widely covered case. Read a few of their thoughts below.
"I don't understand where do they think he'll be staying, and I also don't know whether the court deliberately ignored this visa issue or perhaps we don't have much clarity regarding this matter."
"Ai the justice system is quite messed up. They must at least send them to the repatriation centre. They must wait for their trial there."
"Very interesting that the Magistrate focused mainly on the purpose of granting someone bail, but failed to address the circumstantial evidence that Bushiri is a flight risk and the allegations of him having removed some of his property illegally to Malawi. I am shocked by the decision."
Earlier today Briefly.co.za also reported, Pastor Mboro has once again made the news after saying that he dreamt about Shepard and Mary Bushiri getting released out on bail. Speaking candidly in a recent interview, the controversial pastor said that he believes the Bushiris will be released in order for them to come out to "fix things."
"In this situation, let him get out and fix whatever has to be fixed together with me, and then he will wait for the trial. In my dream, I saw him out. And in my prayers, I said 16 days he will be in jail and won't come out because there were things I was fighting for that were not agreed upon."
While it is unclear how or exactly what the pair agreed on fixing and how they will fix it, according to Mboro, he believes himself and Major 1 will embark on a journey to make things right with those who were wronged by Bushiri, according to the interview that was done by eNCA and shared online.
