Controversial prophet, Shepherd Bushiri's family stopped from leaving Malawi
Controversial prophet, Shepherd Bushiri’s daughters and mother-in-law have reportedly been stopped from leaving Malawi for Kenya.
Bushiri and his wife fled from South Africa to Malawi after being granted bail last year and yesterday they were stopped at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) from leaving the country.
The daughters, Raphaella and Israella, were stopped together with Mary Bushiri’s mother, Magdalena Zgambo and another family member, Esther Bushiri. This is according to a passenger manifest form seen by some local reporters.
They’re facing charges of theft, money laundering and fraud in connection with an alleged R100-million investment scheme.
[The police in Malawi are said to have barred the fugitives’ family members from boarding a private jet the Bushiri family had chartered en route to Kenya.
The two fugitives were not with them, neither were the two included on the passenger manifest.
Bushiri confirmed through his lawyer Wapona Kita in an interview with the local media that his family members were indeed stopped from flying out of the country. He claims that one of his daughters requires urgent medical attention in Kenya, hence the trip.
