Prophet Shepherd Bushiri - Malawi Government Waiting For Formal Extradition Request From South Africa!

Ever since the news broke that Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary had broken their bail conditions and fled to Malawi, the media have been reporting on it constantly.

Questions have been asked as to why the Malawian government have done nothing in the face of the flagrant violation of the law.

It is quite simple, a country has to request a citizen's extradition and Malawi cannot simply send the Bushiri's back to South Africa.

The Malawian government are waiting for the South African government to make a formal extradition request. The Malawian Information Minister Gospel Kazako said that until a formal request is made, his hands are tied according to a report from eNCA.

"He is in this country and we are not hiding that. What we are saying here is, let us have formal and official contact. We know the treaties, we know the agreement, we know so many things that bind us together from South Africa, but we will not be dealing with this in an informal way."

So far Kazako has said that the Malawian government has not yet received a formal request. He also denied rumours that the Bushiri's left South Africa with Malawian President Lazarus Chakwera.

The self-proclaimed prophet, Shepherd Bushiri wants the Malawian government to intervene in his case, but the country has distanced themselves from the matter. The Hawks are trying to find out how Bushiri managed to skip the country and Malawi's authorities are denying claims that Bushiri and his wife hitched a ride in President Lazarus Chakwera's plane.

Malawi's minister of information, Gospel Kazako told eNCA that there was no way the president would have allowed that to happen. Last week, Bushiri and his wife were granted bail of R200 000 each and they have broken their bail conditions as they are not allowed to travel outside of South Africa.
