The Bushiri will not be able to escape from justice any longer. Wait for the trial
The world was left shocked after Prophet Bushiri and his wife escaped South Africa for his or her home country of Malawi.
Shepard disappeared soon after he paid his R200 000 bail. He says he did it because he knew he would get a good trial in South Africa. But the question still remains on how flouted his bail conditions and escaped the country.
As a result, Mzansi wasn’t proud of how Bushiri managed to evade police. The South African government has vowed to catch him and convey him to the book. They also notified Interpol on the wanted status of Bushiri, which suggests that any country that knows the whereabouts of Bushiri is obliged as per the law of nations to arrest him. Doing otherwise would be in contravention of international agreements on fighting crime.
Hence the choice by the Malawian government to arrest them.
“The prophet and his wife handed themselves over to the police … (in Lilongwe on) Wednesday, November 18, 2020, once they acknowledged of their impending arrest,” police spokesperson James Kadadzera said during a statement as told to EWN.
The couple is going to be taken to court although it’s unclear if they’re going to be returning to face the long arm of the law. p
South Africa has also indicated that if Bushiri, and his wife Mary, won’t hand themselves over to authorities within the country by Thursday, the state will take over their property that was used as surety within the case.
