Self proclaimed prophet Bushiri was charged with fraud and money laundering. He was detained and afterwards granted bail with the sum of 200,000 Rand.
The bail condition was that they should not leave South Africa but Bushiri defied it and fled to Malawi with his wife, claiming he’s not safe in South Africa.
“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 Enlightened Christian Gathering leader said.
Bushiri was arrested in October for stealing money worth more than 6.6 million US dollars.
