Just for flying his sick child to Kenya, Malawi govt wanted Bushiri arrested: What if the arrest worked? 

After all immigration issues were done, and the air ambulance cleared, a word reached the desk of the immigration boss at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) in Lilongwe.

The word was short, blunt and crude: “Block the Bushiris. Send their plane back.”

Prophet Bushiri: To be in court for extradition hearing

In a flush of a moment, the boss rushed to the desk, sees three worried people looking over a sickly child seen it a thread of drips on a stretcher.

The sick child is Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s daughter, and the three are the guardians awaiting to board a chartered air ambulance, enroute to Kenya for further medical attention.

The boss, acting on the script of his masters, had to act inhumane and he did. In a flush, the mission was completed: Bushiris blocked from flying to Kenya.

As the worried three dazzled about where on earth was their crime as they, in tears, hurried to get the sickly child back in the clinic that referred her Kenya, another word quickly dropped on the desk of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) in Lilongwe.

The word, again, was short, blunt and crude: “Get warrant of arrest for Bushiri and his wife. They want to run away, arrest him and keep him locked.”

During that time, Bushiri was on the pulpit at his studios in Lilongwe. To him, his child was almost arriving at Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Nairobi, Kenya.

Well, soon after the service, Bushiri got the word: Your child has been blocked from travelling and she is back at the clinic, and, lo and behold, there is a warrant of arrest on your head.

Inside sources say, to all this, Bushiri shook his head, smiled and said: ‘Let’s go to the clinic, those who want to arrest me, will find me there. I have to be there for my child. God will punish me if I fail to save the gift of the child He gave me.”

So he went to the clinic and by Saturday morning, news was all over that his child has been blocked but no reasons given. Speculations were all over: those that hate him dusted of their conspiracies; those that adore him, stood with him.

On Sunday morning, a battalion of 30 police officers, heavily armed, stormed one of Prophet Bushiri’s houses—all geared up to execute the warrant of arrest.

If it wasn’t for his sharp lawyer, Wapona Kita, to interdict the police from effecting the warrant of arrest, Bushiri and wife would have been locked up by now.

It is in matters such as these where government takes rash decisions on its people and fails to explain them that differentiates responsible leadership from irresponsible ones.

Now, the government has cleared Bushiri’s daughter to fly to Kenya. No reasons have been given as to why they were blocked at first.

But, from inside sources, Nyasa Times know that the family was blocked because someone in government thinks Bushiri was shipping the kids outside so that he, again, runs away and join them.

Based on that foolish thinking, a warrant of arrest was issued and executed.

Now, what would government been saying today had Bushiri been locked? What argument will government advance at the inter-partes hearing on March 9?

Running government, Bakili Muluzi said, is a serious business. And, as Goodall Gondwe echoed, state matters are too delicate to be left in the hands of amateurs.

If one has a clear history of running away from the court, absconding bail, it is therefore not ill advised to expect him to run again. I think your article is bullshit. What will our sister South Africa think of us if we let him escape again!?

What is so special with Bushiri to make this news worth? Are you trying to gain public sympathy for a crook like him? You take him as someone who has run away from custody. The only person here to feel sorry is the innocent child who needs help but the father is a criminal. He made money through cheating. He said he could walk on air. What the hell! He cannot heal his own child and yet he milked people that he is a healer.

This story is a lot of bullshit. The guy was at his studio when his child was at the airport!!!! And immediately he learnt that his daughter was not on that plane, he stopped praying and rushed to the clinic to be with his daughter.

This guy is a liar and a thief. Malawi govt should treat him as such.

Bakili’s comnebt is political and he knows fir the fact that the Malawuan government is dealing with a highly wanted alleged fugitive who escaped from highly secured SA despite heavily closed border post due to COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. Government was just being cautious as to ensure Bushiri does not escape Makawi tge same way he escaped SA.

First, the old adage: “You can fool all of the people some of time; you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.” — Attributed to Abraham Lincoln.

It seems this is the end of the road for Al Haj Bushiti.
