Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that An old video of Shepherd Bushiri has surfaced in which he is preaching to his congregation and says that a righteous man will flee when there is danger.
He counters that by saying that a foolish man will see danger and not flee. He obviously took his own advice when he and his wife broke their bail conditions and fled SA for Malawi.
The Bushiri's paid R200 000 in bail, their conditions were that they could not leave South Africa but news broke that the couple had indeed left the country.
The fallout has caused a lot of people grief, including Aaron Motsoaledi who has been dragged over the coals by the Democratic Alliance who holds him responsible for allowing the couple to escape.

The Democratic Alliance were quick to hold Motsoaledi accountable for the couple's escape and many others followed suit.
The Sunday Times reported that the Bushiri's escape has made South Africa an international embarrassment and has angered President Cyril Ramaphosa.
