The money laundering accused “man of God” Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary broke their bail conditions. When they were granted bail, they were told not to travel outside SA.
The “Major 1” as he is known issued a statement on “informed” the public about his departure from South Africa to Malawi.
“I would like to inform the general public that my wife, Mary, and I are temporarily in our home country, Malawi, because of safety and security issues since 2015, matters that got worse when we just got out on bail.”
The safety concerns “Papa” raised includes the allegations that there are people who wanted to “kill” him and Mary. Bushiri wants the South African government to assure him and Mary of their safety and security whilst in South Africa. He also wants an assurance that their bail will not be revoked.
On the third demand, Bushiri wants the officers involved in investigating, arresting and prosecuting him and Mary to recuse themselves. He said this is the same team that he earlier lodged complaint against and, also, opened cases against. “I won’t have a fair trial with their continued involvement.”
Fourthly he want cases he opened against officers to be concluded before his and Mary can proceed.
“In this regard, I am requesting Malawi government to liaise with the South African government to ensure that the above issues are met.” He said.
