Lawyer for Prophet Shepherd Bushiri in South Africa, Terence Baloyi, has gone on offensive and sued South African Police Services (SAPS) for R15 million [K750 million] following his 8 hour detention without charge earlier this month.
Bushiri’s spokesperson, Ephraim Nyondo, has confirmed that Baloyi has given SAPS 30 days to pay him the cash or a formal legal complaint will be filed in court.
Baloyi and two other were detained for 8 hours by South African police, taken to court where the prosecutor told the magistrate that she was not ready with a case against them.
In an interview, Nyondo said as a matter of fact, Baloyi has on several occasions shared with the public the agony, pain and persecution he has persistently suffered after he stood up to a series of extortion pushes on Prophet Bushiri from certain Hawks personnel led by officers Phumla Mrwebi, Colonel Corrie Maritz, Du Plessis and their colleagues.
Prophet Bushiri has, time and again, revealed how these three officers have been trying to extort R10 million from him.
