- According to recent reports, Malawian cops have issued an arrest for Shepherd and Mary Bushiri
- This comes shortly after authorities denied the couple's daughter a trip to Kenya for alleged medical attention
- It is also alleged that the couple will be contesting the authority's decision to stop their daughter from seeking medical attention in Kenya
Recent reports reveal that Malawi police authorities have issued a warrant of arrest for Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary Bushiri. The warrant comes very shortly after the Malawian authorities denied their daughter's trip to Kenya.
Bushiri's spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo said that authorities offered no explanation for the warrant or for denying their daughter travels to Kenya who apparently was going there to seek medical attention.
According to Nyondo, the 8-year-old child had traveled to Kenya on different occasions for medical treatment and was never denied the right to do so before. He also added that the couple will now be taking the matter to court.
He ended off his statement by saying that he believes Malawian authorities will do the right thing and allow the little girl, who is still in a critical condition, to go and seek the care that she needs in Kenya.
“I have strong belief in the leadership of this country and I am certain that it will positively consider our plea and request that the child must go and have medical care just as she was referred by the doctor,” said Nyondo according to an IOL article.
Meanwhile, locals had this to say:
"Bushiri must just come back & face the music."
"Did you just say the children of a man who can heal the blind needed medical care."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that recent reports reveal that the controversial church leaders of the ECG church, self-proclaimed prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary Bushiri's family members were stopped at a Malawian International airport while trying to leave the country.
According to the reports, Bushiri's daughters and mother-in-law were leaving to allegedly seek asylum in Kenya where Kenyan authorities would welcome them. Unfortunately, their plans were thwarted by authorities who barred them from leaving.
Meanwhile, after hearing about the news, South Africa pro-Bushiri and anti-Bushiri supporters quickly headed online to share what they think about the couple's family being barred from leaving.
