10 critical points Bushiri raised in Times TV exclusive interview

Prophet Shepherd Bushiri in an exclusive interview with Times Television underlined that he believes his extradition case will be a watershed on how Malawi citizens living in foreign countries will be treated and perceived and Nyasa Times has picked the 10 critical points he raised.

When a house is burning, and someone comes out of it, you don’t, at first, ask how that person got out. You safeguard that person first.

1-In 2018, before his arrest, he had complained to Malawi government with regards to human rights violations he was suffering in South Africa. He also raised similar concerns with human rights organisations in Malawi who took it up with South African High Commission in Malawi and also South Africa’s Human Rights Commission.

2-In the same year 2018, he complained before South African authorities—Police, Intelligence, Ministers—against three police officers from the Hawks who wanted to extort R10 million from him. He even open cases with the Independent Police department against such officers.

3-Instead of being investigated, the officers were left on the loose and, in retaliation and sheer cover up, the three officers arrested him in 2019 accusing him of buying a private jet using cash as part payment. Bushiri wondered why, if he broke the law, the three officers also arrested his wife but never arrested the white person who sold him the private jet.

4-After the arrest, Bushiri said he was given bail and attended every court session for three years without being tried because the State was still gathering evidence.

5-The three police officers, still failing to give him trial, continued to issue threats to him. They kept demanding money to withdraw his case or, if he was still not cooperating, he would be killed. Stuck to his guns, the three officers arrested him again in 2020 on fresh money laundering charges.

6-After being kept in prison for 11 days, and given poisoned food, he was released on bail and, part of the condition, was that he must be staying in one house so that he is easily monitored. During the same time, he had suffered a series of assassination attempts. He realised he was in deep danger and, again, he would never face fair trial as long as the three officers were handling his cases. He had to leave South Africa to preserve his life and seek justice in Malawi courts.

7-On how he got to Malawi, he said: “When a house is burning, and someone comes out of it, you don’t, at first, ask how that person got out. You safeguard that person first.”

8-He is not in Malawi to seek political intervention. He is in Malawi seeking to have his story heard by the country’s respected justice system.

9-He believes that doctors treat, and God heals. That is why, after praying for his sick child, he took the responsibility of sending her to the hospital. Further, he said he has never, even a single day, claimed that he has healed a person, or anointing oil or wrist bands heals people; rather, it’s God that heals people. He only prays for people and the anointing materials are only conduits of God’s power.

10-He said his case will be a watershed on how Malawi will be treated in foreign lands. He added he believes that there are so many Malawians in foreign land facing what he faced in South Africa.

And maybe he needs to be reminded not all Malawians are con men and thieves in the foreign lands they live in to fear the justice system Only the wrong doers live in fear, i can think of more than his 10 points why he should face justice and his 7th must safe guard him instead of asking how he got out really he thinks everyone is a fool what is he hiding?
So called prophet and man of god first learn how to speak the truth and face the truth of your true self just another suited thief

Bomboclaat. Birds of the same feathers, him, Hawks. Who else have you seen complaining like a drug dealer. Ma deal mbwee munthu wamulungu? So many business people,pastors, some reacher than he. Tsono Balotelli the question is why always you??? And why are you running oga? Matters of law end in a court of law, no amount of running will set you free.

Why he has Not answered the Question No 7 Bushiri is Just Twisting if he is Really Man of God he should First Answer Question
As he is in Malawi at Present and He is Safe.and.Away from South Africa so the Examples give by Him is Rubbish and Just Talk Talk
He should First Clarify to Malawians How did he Arrive in Malawi
It seems MCP is playing a Big Conspiracy with Malawians

If the points Prophet Shepard Bushiri raises are true, then the RSA needs to sweep it carpet clean first. Their justice system is a sham. Shame on them.

Mhhh you start by saying “if” meaning these aren’t validated and conclude by saying our justice system is a sham. So what proof do you have of this sham of a justice system?

The same system gave these fugitives bail even when everyone could see he would make a run for it which he did.

My puzzlement exactly these are an attempt at PR.

People living in foreign countries do not complain about human rights issues to their home country,it doesn’t make sense.

What a waste of people’s time.

And the sad reality of this is people will still believe him! If he is truly a man of God then let God help him if he dammed by the hawks and justice system of South Africa! You know the saying if God is on your side then no power in this world will harm you! The same with David and goliath! Mosses and his staf! Did Jesus run away when he knew they were coming for him? So if he truly believes in the power of God then let God judge him and if he truly is a prophet… Read more »

Don’t bring in Malawi into your dirt Mr bushiri. This is not about Malawi. Malawians have been living outside of their country before you were even born. In fact our passport ranking is on of the best in Africa, not requring visas in many countries. It’s the likes of you that will drop our ranking. Botswana Namibia already requires you to have a Visa and hopefully they’ll know that you’re the only crook among the many pastors that also go out of the country. You have spiced your story with lies, repeated lies with the hope that the judiciary buys… Read more »
