Bushiri and his wife Mary

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)—Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary today morning handed themselves over to police at Area 30 in Lilongwe, spokesperson for Bushiri and Enlightened Christian Gathering Ephraim Nyondo has confirmed to local media.

Nyondo indicated that in his public address on Saturday, Bushiri hinted that he will be submitting himself before law enforcement agencies in Malawi, any day, to legally explain and defend his decision to come to Malawi to seek justice and that this is what he has done today.

Bushiri and wife Mary were on bail in South Africa where they are being accused of fraud and money laundering but fled to Malawi, his native country, a move he described as “a tactical withdrawal meant to preserve lives” while speaking to supporters on social media on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church leader has told SADC community and nations across the global that he cannot have fair trial in South Africa.

Bushiri has therefore pleaded for support against South Africa government to extradite him for trial in that country.

In a press statement released on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, the Man of God who insists that he is not running away from the case South Africa government has leveled against him but rather looking for fair trial.

“I am innocent until proven guilty. As of now, there is no court in the world that has proven me guilty. I may be subjected by media and public trial but I mantain my innocence until proven guilty.

“It is unfortunate, therefore, to have the Minister of Home Affairs in South Africa to intentionally and unfairly mislead the people of South Africa and the whole world in this regard. I cannot have a fair trial in South Africa”, says Bushiri.
