Law enforcers in South Africa have arrested Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of Enlighten Christian Gathering (ECG) church and his wife, Mary.
Bushiri’s spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo confirmed of the development in a statement made available to faceofmalawi.
“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.
He added: “We are told the Prophet is on his way to the Hawks office to hand over himself. He believes in the justice system of the country 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.”
Currently Bushiri is also answering money laundering charges and the case will resume next year.
