- The investigation into Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is still ongoing and according to the investigating officer more arrests are still to come
- This comes after Lt-Col Daniel Marais revealed that not everyone connected to the Bushiri's money-laundering operation has been arrested
- Willah Mudolo, his wife Zethu and Landiwe Ntlokwana are also facing similar charges to the Bushiri's
As the investigation into the flight of Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary continues, the likelihood of more arrests increases.
Particularly if you take the testimony of Lt-Col Daniel Marais, the investigating officer in the case.
This came to light during the cross-examination of one of the Bushiri's co-accused Willah Mudolo who appeared along with his wife Zethu and Landiwe Ntlokwana.
They are facing similar charges to that of Bushiri, which includes laundering money, theft as well as fraud.
Marais was asked if there were more people who had not yet been arrested who connected to the Bushiri's money-laundering operation to which he answered with a "yes" according to the Sowetan Live.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Shepherd Bushiri's spokesperson, Ephraim Nyondo, has spoken out about the Malawian stadium pulling out from allowing Bushiri and his church members to occupy the stadium for a crossover event that was set to be held there from 31 December.
The event, which was previously held at the South African FNB Stadium and attracts thousands of Enlightened Christian Gatherings' churchgoers from in and around South Africa, has now found itself without a venue despite many loyal Bushiri fans showing interest in attending.
This may be why the plans to have the event are still in the works. According to Nyongo, organisers of the popular crossover service, are all putting their heads together to find a way forward.
In other news, Willah Mudolo, another individual being charged alongside Shepherd Bushiri for fraud and money laundering had tried to flee South Africa three times this year, each time his destination had been Dubai.
The Hawks eventually arrested him on his third attempt on the 17th of October, his two previous attempts have taken place on the 21s of September and 13th of October.
Col Daniel Marais, a member of the Hawks, had said that Mudolo, a Zambian citizen illegally residing in South Africa, had tried to flee South Africa for Dubai on three separate occasions.
