Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife have been released on R200 000 bail but the couple has some unconventional bail conditions.
One of them is that they are not allowed to preach in a manner which could be perceived as a threat towards the prosecution.
The National Prosecution Authority (NPA) clarified that the couple could not threaten the prosecutors or any of the investigators while the trial is underway.
Magistrate Thandi Theledi read out the court order which contained the details of the couple's bail conditions after they spent almost 14 days behind bars according to IOL.
The couple must report to their closest police station, as well as handing over the deed to their property in Centurion.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that a concerning and eyebrow-raising clip has been shared online by a Twitter user, @Inno_mwanjasi. In the clip, which seems to have originated on a Ghanaian television show, a Ghanaian man who is being interviewed, presumably a prophet, speaks a warning to controversial South African, Pastor Mboro.
"My eyes are open. My spirit is in South Africa. There is a prophet called Mboro, listen to me, there is a prophet called Mboro. Mboro listen to me, either you leave Prophet Bushiri alone, or you die through car accident."
Meanwhile, South Africans and nationals from other countries did not know what to make of the clip. Many of them headed to the comment section to share their thoughts, some of which you can read below.
In other news, 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.
