Prophet Bushiri hands himself to Hawks after South Africa police make fresh arrest of his wife

South Africa-based leader of the Enlightened Christian Gathering Church (ECGC) Prophet Shepherd Bushiri on Tuesday handed himself to the Hawks- members of that country’s Directorate for Priority Crime Investigations – after they had earlier picked his wife, Bushiri’s lawyer and spokesperson have confirmed.

Bushiri: Fresh arrest

Hawks in South Africa is considered highly skilled in crime investigations. It investigated former president Jacob Zuma and the Gupta brothers over alleged fraud and corrupt-related cases.

Bushiri’s spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo confirmed that ECG Church leader and his wife Mary, who run several business enterprises in South Africa and abroad are now in police custody.

“The Hawks informed lawyers of our leaders, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and Prophetess Mary Bushiri, late Monday afternoon that they (Hawks) are requesting the couple to go to their office by 11am accompanied by their lawyers to discuss an issue concerning a certain investment pertaining to certain company called Rising Estate.

“We are told as the Prophet and lawyers were getting prepared for the 11am appointment, the Hawks went to their house before the 11am appointment and arrested the Prophet’s wife alone,” said Nyondo in a statement.

Nyondo and Bushiri’s Terrance Ntsako Baloyi confirmed to Nyasa Times that the prophet left morning from his lavish hotel in Rustenburg, Sparkling Waters Hotel to the Hawks office “to hand over himself. “

Said lawyer Baloyi: “Prophet Bushiri in the justice system of South Africa and he will abide to all what the law compels until all this war is done.

“As the matter is still currently under criminal investigation, we have been advised not to discuss this matter any further.”

The church has since encouraged its members to be steadfast in prayer .

It’s sad to see a citizen of Malawi being persecuted in RSA while the Embassy goesremains with their normal business. The Malawi consulate in RSA needs to make a statement.

Not a fan of Bushiri the Hawks enlightened Police have been wrong before. Still Bushiri has a case to answer but Government has failed after 4 years to bring the matter before court or provide disclosure to mount Defense. Some would suspect pure jealously of the wealth he has accumulated by people giving him money for redemption. Wrong of Police to arrest the wife prior to an agreed time of meeting.

Bushiri is being ill-advised by his lawyers and that will cost him big time. Firstly, SARS has concrete evidence against him and his wife, and the laws of South Africa allow out-of-court settlement with respect to tax related issues. Julius Malema did it, paid 18 million rands he owed through losing his houses, farm and money. Now he bounced back, a free man. Bushiri should stop wasting the court’s time (unless he knows for sure that he is innocent) and just plead guilty, ask for mercy as a first-time offender. These lawyers will bleed him dry at the current cost… Read more »

The problem with being ‘Man of God’ is as soon as he pays, that’s the end of him. He will try as much possible to play the victim card.

I sympathize with Bushiri because he is young and very naive. He maked childish mistakes because fame and fortune came too early and too quickly. All the same, we all make mistakes, no one is perfect, prophet or not. God is God of second chances but Bushiri must own up to his mistakes. South Africa still needs him. He is a tourist destination by himself pooling thousands in that God-forsaken, good-for-nothing xenophobic country.

This is money laundering not taxi issues. No out of court settlement
