Bushiri says his lawyers detention  in SA ‘an escalation of  failed scheme by some Hawks officers’

The leader of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church, Malawian Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, has spoken out against the 8-hour detention of his two lawyers in South Africa on Monday.

Bashiri: The move is just ‘an escalation and intensification of a failed scheme, by some Hawks officers, to cover up the corruption and extortion cases’ I opened against them.

South African police on Monday arrested and detained two lawyers for Bushiri—only to be freed by the court after 8 hours of being kept in police cells

According to a statement released on Tuesday, Bushiri says his South African lawyers—Terence Baloyi and Alvin Khoza—were detained on Monday, taken to court where the prosecutors failed to charge them, forcing the magistrate to free them.

The detention, according to Bushiri, also included an officer from the Independent Private Investigation in South Africa whom Bushiri hired to expose the scheme by South African police recruiting girls to fabricate rape charges against him.

“It’s shocking to note that after my instructing lawyers and the private investigator who, after being kept in custody like convicted criminals, the Senior State Advocates, who issued the warrant of arrests, decided to withdraw the charges and stated that the police investigation are incomplete yet we know they have investigating since 2017,” he said.

However, Bushiri underlined that though saddened by the development, he is not surprised with the detention of his lawyers because the move is  just ‘an escalation and intensification of a failed scheme, by some Hawks officers, to cover up the corruption and extortion cases’ he opened against them.

Bushiri has insisted that the move only confirms that he can’t face fair trial in South Africa’s unjust and unfair courts.

Stop misleading the public, you didnt run away because of some rape allegations, you are hiding from very serious fraud and money laundering charges. You can try as much as you want but that charge won’t go away anytime soon. You will have to face the law right there in a South African court and prove your innocence.

But on a serious note; can the police hire girls to fake rape claims against Bushiri? Come on guys. Its normal to detain & question lawyers representing someone who has jumped bail. Mr Bushiri the only way to clear yourself out of this is to go to RSA and successfully defend yourself other wise ifenso mumatikayikisa

Hardcore South African, Bushiri leave us alone

We South African people don’t want false prophet Bushiri to return to South Africa. He is a fraud and enough is enough of him. This time we gonna take the law into our hands. Nobody is gonna protect him. We’re ready to protect our motherland by all means necessary. Let him stay in malawi where he belongs. South Africa is for South Africans and Malawi is for Malawian people. We don’t need fraudsters here. Bushiri you’re warned, stay in Malawi and leave our beloved country, south Africa alone. You have been warned.

Victory my black ass. Let that fraudster stay in malawi. We don’t want his fucking gospel. South Africa belongs to south Africans and malawi is for malawians. Let him be like TB JOSHUA in Nigeria. Those who want to see him they go to Nigeria. If they are south Africans who believe in him will come to malawi. We don’t want that fraudster to come or live in south Africa.

Bushiri is facing persecution from the Hawks, South African corrupt politicians and local pastors who are scared of his success in religious front. Bushiri will never return to SA to face the corrupt Hawks. Leave Man if God Alone. Bible has cases where Jesus parents fled the Pharaoh who wanted to kill little Jesus. Bushiri is at home and he does not need SA. When he was in SA, people said Bushiri must go home and now he is at home, you say he must go back to the SA. If you want to try him come and try him… Read more »

You must hand over your fraudster prophet otherwise all malawians in this country will be kicked out the Rwanda style. If he is innocent let him prove himself in our court of law. If malawi want to go to war with south Africa because you protect a fraudster south Africa can occupy malawi within a week. We know your weaknesses. You’re very tribalistic to each other. We will overthrow the present government and give the power to those you oppress. You Malawians hate the Northerners very much and those people will be very much happy to emancipate them from the… Read more »

The zeal with which the SA govt is pursuing the Bushiri issue, one would think that it has economic benefits indeed. They failed to pursue TB Joshua after over 85 of their nationals died in the collapsed building. To this day they are mum because Nigeria showed them the middle finger. Now our good for nothing politicians want to build their careers by selling out their own son. For the record, Chakwera hates Bushiri becoz Bushiri had a serious altercation with his son, Nick. Another village idiot thinks Bushiri is guilty, when in reality his victims are gullible. No sympathy… Read more »

Since you raised the TB Joshua issue how would SA persue it as no crime was committed in SA by TB Joshua? I’m all ears to be schooled. What did Nigeria say to show us the middle finger? You guys depend a lot on your journalist that write half stories. This Chomi chap didn’t tell you why the people were taken in for questioning. Well they were taken in for corruption and intimidation for having played a role in an alleged intimidation and paying of the alleged rape victims who later withdrew their rape charges against the fugitive. They were… Read more »

You mean that TB Joshua is not liable for the death of 85 South Africans just because it happened in Nigeria? Even the Marikana massacre pales in comparison to this incident. Nigeria simply through the case in the dustbin, played hardball with South Africa, delayed the repatriation of the deceased. Where is the case? In the dustbin. Why then do you speak as if Bushiri is the worst thing to ever happen to South Africa? His lawyers are being charged with frivolous and vexatious charges under the guise of the ‘catch-n-release’ justice system of South Africa.

I didn’t say that I asked a simple question and went on and on without answering it. I ask again how did the SA government fail to persue the TB Joshua issue when the incident took place in another sovereign state? If you have more details on how SA failed in this matter please enlighten us. As far as I am aware the SA government said look there are processes in place in Nigeria and those need to be followed which they were with the investigations that took place. The SA government intervened when families were complaining that they are… Read more »

What about your massacre by Bingu wamutharika and his younger brother, Peter. They slaughtered the Northerners mircelessly. Kamuzu Banda slaughtered them like chickens. You, Malawians are so cruel to each other. Why do you come here in south Africa if we’re so bad people. Stay in your own country. Leave us alone, you motherfuckers

We must be left alone. You hate each other and you bring that tribalism shit to south Africa. Look yourselves in the mirror and tell me why do you hate Northerners, your fellow malawians. You people are full of it. We did not invite you to come to south Africa. You’re here illegally. Stay there in malawi, your own country. So, do you want to colonize us?

Kan jy Afrikaans praat? Ek dink so nie. Baie mense se het in Suid Afrika gebore wees maar hulle lieg. I support those who says Bushiri mustn’t lie to Malawian people. He scammed people here. Some of them have lost their life savings because Bushiri duped them. Bushiri is so evil. Jesus never took people’s money, he died poor. Jesus never told the rich to bring money to him, but he said give your wealth to the poor and follow me. Wealth and God don’t go together.

It’s better to keep quiet you devil. You are the one who has put your lawyers in trouble by running away from a lawful bail. An innocent person faces justice to clear his name. You know what you were doing. You know you were wrong.

Ginimbi, the illuminate, the likes of Bushiri

This guy is not just only a thief but a brutish fool, if what he is claiming is true that means he is innocent, and my question is if he is innocent why did he run away? it is not the hawks who pass out judgement but the court, he must face the courts if he is really innocent, stupid moron
