- Shepherd and Mary Bushiri are reportedly applying for bail in their home country of Malawi
- The Bushiri couple reportedly handed themselves over to police in Malawi after fleeing South Africa
- The Bushiris are quickly becoming an infamous couple around the globe after they broke their bail conditions in SA
Controversial religious leaders Shepherd and Mary Bushiri have reportedly applied for bail in Malawi. Reports say that the fugitive couple's house was raided and they are currently in police custody in their home country.
Warrants for the arrest of the self-proclaimed prophet and his wife were also issued yesterday by the Gauteng High Court after they broke their bail conditions by fleeing the country. The couple reportedly made their escape over this past weekend.
Shepherd and Mary Bushiri are facing charges relating to money laundering and fraud. They are quickly becoming an infamous couple yet they continue to receive unwavering support from their thousands of followers.
eNCA reported yesterday, 18 November, that the Bushiris will be appearing in court for a bail application in the Area 3 Magistrate's Court in Lilongwe, Malawi. A report by Al Jazeera stated that the couple had handed themselves over to police.
Take a look at this tweet from an eTV news reporter:
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that the Bushiris' extradition process would be a lengthy one. This after a reporter based in Malawi shared information about how the extradition process will work now that the Bushiris are complying with the law.
According to the reporter, police information and tracking systems will need to be updated about the Bushiri case before they will be released, he said in an eNCA report.
Briefly.co.za reported on Bushiri after a video of him 'preaching' went viral. South African musician DJ Shimza shared the worrying video of Bushiri to Twitter recently.
In the video, Bushiri calls a lady up and proceeds to ask her if she is working or if she is a student. He then brings her to the front of the congregation. Once there, he asks for permission to "enter" her house. Bushiri then proceeds to describe, in detail, what her house looks like from the outside before making his way inside - all in his mind, supposedly.
He begins to describe that she has a four-plate stove and one of the plates does not work. The congregants begin to cheer and scream as Bushiri describes the contents of the unknown woman's refrigerator.
