BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)—Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s daughter, who was blocked from flying to Kenya to seek medical attention by Malawi Police, is in critical condition at a local medical facility, Maravi Post has learnt.
In a statement released on Monday by Bushiri’s spokesperson, Ephraim Nyondo, the flamboyant Prophet has pleaded with government to allow his daughter to go to Kenya for the medical treatment as referred by his doctor.
“I can confirm that on Friday, 19th February, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s daughter was blocked from flying to Nairobi, Kenya, to seek medical attention. She was accompanied by three guardians. Prophet Bushiri and Prophetess Bushiri were not part of the delegation.
“The daughter, 8, was duly referred by competent Malawi medical professionals to seek further medical treatment and all required immigration details were in place to facilitate her travel through a chartered air ambulance. Up to date, my office hasn’t been supplied with any information as to why the child was denied the right to lawfully access medical attention after being duly referred by a competent medical practioneer,” reads the statement.
According to Nyondo, the child has severally been referred to Kenya for medical attention due to her medical condition.
“The child’s condition remains critical at the same medical facility which referred her to seek further medical attention in Kenya. It must be underlined that this was not the first time for the child, due to her medical condition, to be referred to Kenya for medical attention. The child has been flying there several times and I am shocked with this isolated blocking,” said Nyondo adding “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.”
According to a passenger manifest form, which we have seen, the prophet’s children Raphaela and Israela, cousin Esther Bushiri and mother-in-law Magdalena Zgambo were expected to depart from Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe last week.
The chartered plane, belonging to Phoenix Aviation, had landed at the airport and the four were checking in when they were stopped by airport security officials.
Few hours after the child was blocked from flying to Kenya, Malawi Police issued a warrant of arrest for Prophet Bushiri and Prophetess Mary Bushiri, who are in the country after jumping bail in the Republic of South Africa where they were answering charged of fraud and money laundering.
