Bushiri followers storm court in Lilongwe

Dozens of followers of prophet Shepherd Bushiri are trooping to Lilongwe Magistrate’s court where the ECG leader and his wife are expecting to appear after their arrest in the morning following an Interpol warrant of arrest.

Waiting for Papa at court

People wearing black T-shirts with the words ‘HANDS OFF BUSHIRI’ are gathering near the court’s entrance.

Police say prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary will be taken to court after recording their statements.

The couple who are facing trial in  South Africa fled the Rainbow nation last week  and handed themselves to Area 30 police in Lilongwe earlier today.

In a statement, national police spokesperson James Kadadzera says police officers launched a manhunt of the two following a warrant of arrest issued by Interpol in Pretoria on Monday this week .

Meanwhile,  Khumbo  Soko who is one of  the lawyers for Bushiri says the police have currently detained the couple.

This guy is a fraud star, cornman. Why waste time at court with stupid placards, Malawian whats our problem. Look at the families whose money this guy stole, the unnecessary struggles he has exposed then to. No this guy has to face the law and pay for his sins. Prophet for what, this could be the end of this guy.

Chimidzi thinking – he has broken INTERNATIONAL LAW. Mark my words, he will be taken back to SA to face the music. International Law doesn’t give a fuck who you are. Just wasting your time outside the court when you should be at home planting maize to eat this season.

If they did something wrong then let them face the law.A crime is a crime no matter how rich or poor you may be.Besides,who printed those t-shirts?Stop being used by wrong people.If they did not commit any crime why are they running away from a court order bail?

Sometime back, Bushiri came to Malawi. He came to a branch of Ecobank in Lilongwe. He had a huge entourage of people including bodyguards. Some detractors have questioned Bushiri by asking why does a prophet need bodyguards. Now he is concerned for his safety, where are all these bodyguards we saw accompanying him on his trips?

Ndipo zoonadi, amapanga ma deals are yekha, why involving the government now? I think as a country we have better things to focus on than the Bushiris.
