In a brief statement ECG Director of Communication Ephraim Nyondo said without more details, “The Magistrate has again today Monday postponed to Friday. October 30, 2020 Monday the bail hearing of case involving Major 1 and Prophetess Mary Bushiri”.
This is the third time couple denied bail since their arrests on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
Nyondo expressed sadness over South Africa’s state lawyers of not willing to grant Bushiri bail.
“The State formally requested to postpone the case while also resisting bail. Our lawyers vehemently opposed the State’s stance to the effect that they demonstrated their readiness by submitting bail applications affidavit.
They have now spent six nights in police cells after being charged for money laundering.
Bushiri’s lawyer said they didn’t have a problem with the case being broadcast‚ but the accused should not be filmed. The prosecution objected to prosecutors being filmed‚ citing their safety as an issue.
“We would like inform you all that hearing of the bail of the case involving our spiritual parents, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and Prophetess Mary Bushiri, has been postponed, again, to Friday, 30th October 2020”
We thank you for your support and let’s continue to put them in prayer.
