Governance and human rights advocate Undule Mwakasungula has pleaded with government to “critically evaluate” its stance on the ongoing extradition case involving Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Prophetess Mary.
Mwakasungula said in the domain of human rights promotion, it is imperative to address issues that directly impact the well-being and rights of individuals, as well as the broader interests of the public.
In a media statement, Mwakasungula said in as far as the ongoing extradition case is concerned, it is essential to highlight that it does not align with the broader interests of the public.
“Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, over the past decade, has emerged as a significant humanitarian figure, impacting millions through direct and indirect interventions.
“His unwavering commitment to philanthropy is evident in his ongoing projects, notably the establishment of Goshen City, poised to be a landmark development in Africa with substantial economic implications for Malawi,” observed Mwakasungula.
He said such contributions to the society underscore the need to view Prophet Bushiri not merely as an individual entangled in legal proceedings but as a valuable asset to the nation.
The activist further observed the case has been a considerable drain on public resources which could have been more “judiciously utilized for other pressing matters that align more closely with public interest”.
