Papa is out! Prophet Bushiri and wife granted bail: South Africa shakes

South Africa-based leader of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) Church  Prophet Shepherd Bushiri  were on Wednesday granted bail of R100 000 each  after they were arrested last week.

Shepherd Bushiri’s supporters outside court hold a picture of the self-proclaimed prophet and his wife at their bail hearing on 6 February 2019. Picture: Abigail Javier/EWN.

They were arrested by the Hawks last Friday on charges of fraud and money laundering.

Bushiri, commonly referred to as “Major 1” or “Papa”, in their bail hearing, Bushiri and his wife Mary denied that they were responsible for the charges against them.

They argued that they have had no previous convictions against them or pending warrants of arrest.

The pair said they posed no flight risk as both their South African IDs and passports were held by police.

The State did not oppose bail and Magistrate Martin Van Wyk  released the pair on bail

The throngs of supporters screamed in celebration after learning that their man of God and his wife had been granted bail.

The  hundreds of supporters lifted their hands to the sky and bowed to the ground. Chanting, dancing, praying and crying ensued.

“Papa is out, Major 1…,” one congregant cheered.

The case was postponed to May 10.

South Africas economy will always be in jeopardy because they let people who destroy the economy run free. How much is he steal now

This so-called man of God impregnated a girl here in Malawi and palm oiled courts to rule in his favour. I have very low regard for Bushiri.

Coming to the money laundering issue, I say let him bear the consequence. Should he be exonerated, that will be the time for his layabouts to rejoice, certainly not because he’s been granted bail. There is still a mill stone round his neck.

Mangochi kabwafu is a devil walking, so he is annointed by devil wishing a man of God to fall. I’m sure he did all devilish rituals to see Prophet Bushiri go down but it will not pass. Is he Malawian that guy?
