Pretoria Magistrate Court has pushed the hearing of South Africa-based  Malawian prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s case to Friday.

The Court spent the whole listening to bail application of the Bushiri’s co-accused until pronouncing the ruling with hearing from the Enlightenment Christian Gathering (ECG) church leader and his wife’s application.

Meanwhile, thousands of ECG  church members across the world have expressed their anger towards these postponements, saying its now prosecution.

Bushiri’s spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo said the couple is doing fine but expressed concerns with the postponements.

“We still believe in South Africa’s justice system and we will not relent until justice is done,” he said.

Bushiri and his wife are due back in court on Friday and will remain in custody

I feel like someone or an organization is against him, and despite everything his church members stuck with him

If he was American citizen. American govt would have release a condemnation notice. But malawi govt is silent while their citizens are unfairly treated.

When prosecutors postpone bail hearings just know that they do not have sufficient evidence, they just want to intimidate the accused to agree to plea deals. They are already failing to bring another case to trial. Someone is just intimidating him for not getting a cut. Bushiri’s strategy of not raising concern about the judiciary is brilliant. Even if he has grounds to do so. He is managing the trial well, but he needs a civil society institution to raise the concern in his behalf.
