- Malawian authorities have granted Shepherd Bushiri's daughter permission to leave the country
- Earlier reports revealed that the eight-year-old child was stopped at an airport after leaving the country to seek medical attention in Kenya
- Their permission comes after the Bushiris contested their decision to bar the child from leaving in court
Recent news reports reveal that Shepherd and Mary Bushiri's eight-year-old daughter has been granted permission by Malawian authorities to leave the country in order to receive medical treatment in Kenya.
Earlier this week it was reported that his daughter and mother-in-law were stopped by Malawian authorities at the Malawi international airport while they were trying to leave the country for Kenya, where the little one will be receiving treatment.
Not long thereafter, Bushiri's spokesperson revealed that the couple was taking the matter to court as it is the child's right to seek medical attention abroad should a qualified medical doctor deem it necessary.
Meanwhile, people have had this to say about the matter:
"Advovo is just stating facts not alternative facts you want him to peddle. Bushiri claimed to have healing & other miracle powers and sucked money from his compliant followers before doing a runner to Malawi, a greater majority of those followers are worse off now."
"You wanted Bushiri out, he is out. Rest mfethu."
"Yes, you see the issue remains that of education and empowerment. Our people are generally good, loving people who will take your word on anything if you display the characteristics which they value. So we need to enlighten our people about the realities of this world - somehow."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that 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.
