Malawi Applies to Extradite ‘Prophet’ Bushiri, Wife


By Own Correspondent
The Malawia government has applied to extradite self-proclaimed prophet, Shepherd Bushiri and his wife.
The ‘holy’ couple fled South Africa, where they were based and performing miracles, in November last year while on bail.
They are charged with theft, fraud and money-laundering.
The formal hearing is set to begin on the 8th of next month.
The couple appeared in court in Malawi last month, after a warrant of arrest was issued.
However, Bushiri, previously said he is not running away from his trial in South Africa, saying he is in Malawi to seek intervention from his home country.
“If I wanted to run away, I would not have come to Malawi. Running away, you go to a country where you don’t tell people where you are. Right now, I’m informing the whole world that I’m in Malawi.”
Bushiri says he doesn’t feel safe in South Africa and that in February 2020, he “almost got shot in Sandton” and authorities have done nothing about it.
