Principal Resident Magistrate Viva Nyimba has adjourned to March 8 an extradition case involving Prophet Shepered Bushiri and his wife Mary.
The adjournment follows a request by defense lawyer Wapona Kita that they be given 30 days to go through the extradition documents served by the state.
Kita had prayed with the court that the case returns in court mid-February.
In reaction Director of Public Prosecution Steve Kayuni agreed with the defense arguing Extradition documents are voluminous in nature as they exceed over 1 thousand pages.
In his ruling senior Resident Magistrate Viva Nyimba agreed with both parties and has since adjourned the matter to March 8 for both parties to finish preparing their arguments.
The Bushiris are wanted by South African authorities where they were answering charges of theft and fraud before the couple jumped bail.
