Court sustains ‘no arrest  but summons’ for Bushiri: Extradition hearing set for March 8

Magistrate Court in Lilongwe has on Wednesday sustained its  20th November  2020 ruling which said that Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and wife, Mary, should appear before their extradition hearings through a way of summon not arrest.

Prophet Bushiri: Will not face arrest but summoned to court for extradition hearing

The Court has also directed the extradition hearings begins on March and  Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG)  church head  Prophet Bushiri and wife, Mary, should appear by way of summon not arrest.

State—through the Director of Public Prosecution—had applied to court to have the Bushiris arrested as they wait for the hearing but in his ruling Magistrate Viva Nyimba stopped the execution of the arrest and ordered that the Bushiri be summoned on March 8 for the beginning of their hearing.

Lawyer for Bushiri Wapona Kita said they welcome the ruling as the court has given a clear direction on the case.

“I am also happy that the State and the Court has assured us that my clients won’t face arrest but they will be appearing before the Court through a way of summons,” he said.

Director of Public Prosecutions Steve Kayuni also said the State is ready and is happy that the Court has given clear directions.

Musiyeni mzanu adyerere. Pitani kamweni tiyi wa mkodzo. Bushiri is not a criiminal. The only criminal is the dunce cap judge who signed his papers. Thats the criminal..

I doubt the Major, the Papa, the Father, the Chipikiro, the Gama the Bushiri, the Shepherd, the fugitive yooo to many names sounds like a really crook with 5 Passports… is innocent. No no no if he was a man he claims he is he could not have run for his life. Pastor boarder jumping running to save his life.. ayikhona. What happened to the one who sent him. What happened to Bushiri who said “I will not leave you elone(alone)” to his congregation. Heee where is that bold speaking boy, because we are left with a coward who is… Read more »

Yee Most people or followers of Bushiri are talking about fair trail, yes it will be fair because the guilty will be charged accordingly if he does not have enough evidence to prove his and her innocence.

Something is wrong with Viva Nyimba. Satha bwinotu. Munthu wa extradition amayenera kumangidwa

Some is wrong here. They want Bushiri to continue kubera anthu here in Malawi. The good thing is that Malawians are poor and mbava iyi would not make as much as he made in South Africa. The South Africans are not clever people. They are even fooled by false sangomas from Malawi. They believe in muti too much and think that Malawian muti is strong. Bushiri took advantage and swindled millions of kwachas. Criminals must face the music.
