Prophet Bushiri & Wife Taken Into Custody By Malawi Police

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife, Mary, have been arrested at their home in Malawi this morning.

Rainbow Television Malawi reported on Wednesday that Malawian police officers raided the fugitive’s home in Lilongwe and took the couple into custody.

The two fled South Africa at the weekend while out of police custody on bail after being arrested for allegations of fraud and money laundering

Self-proclaimed Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary handed themselves over to police in Lilongwe, Malawi on Wednesday.

Times 360 of Malawi posted on its social media channels that Bushiri and his wife had handed themselves over at Lilongwe Police Station this morning.

Bushiri and his wife left South Africa under unclear circumstances last week after they were granted R200 000 bail each.

The Enlightened Christian Gathering church leader, his wife and three others are accused of fraud involving around R102 million.

On Saturday, Bushiri said that they had fled because they believed their lives were in danger in South Africa and they would not get a fair trial.

Meanwhile, the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Wednesday issued warrants of arrest for the Bushiris, when it emerged they had not appeared for their Friday check-in with police
