The South Africa’s government has formerly served Malawi with extradition request for Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and wife Mary who are being accused of fraud and money laundering.

This has been disclosed in a statement from the SA’s Ministry of Justice and Correctional Services spokesperson spokesperson, Chrispin Phiri dated December 4, 2020 seen by this publication.

According to Phiri, the request is in line with the agreements that were made by the two countries through Southern Africa Development Community (SADC).

“The Ministry of Justice and Correctional Services, confirms that the extradition request for Mr and Mrs Bushiri, has been duly served in terms of Article 6 of the SADC Protocol on extradition as well Article 10 of the Extradition Agreement Between the Government of Malawi and Republic of South Africa entered in terms of the Republic of South Africa Extradition Act No 67 of 1962 as amended.
“As previously indicated, the law provides for this extradition request to be submitted within 30 days, however this extradition request is been brought within a period of two weeks,” reads in part the statement.

The two insist they fled to seek justice in Malawi and subsequently accused the South African government if ignoring their security fears.
