It has been reported that Pastor Shepherd Bushiri has thrown a towel and handed himself over the police in Pretoria at the Silverton police station for allegedly involved in fraud and money laundering for 102 million rands on Tuesday 20th of October 2020.
On the other hand the Shepherd’s wife has been arrested with other couple by the Hawks.
“The other couple were arrested on Saturday 17 October, whereby the woman was seized in Sandton and the husband at OR Tambo International airport.” According to the Hawks Serious Commercial Crime Investigation.
The first couple is Willah Mudolo and Zethu Mudolo, their case was postponed to the 30th of October for a bail application since they were present at Pretoria magistrate court. South Africa is not that big but this kind of crimes arrests must be made so that even those ones who are looking should learn the consequences.
Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife were arrested for money laundering and fraud. In August this year, the man of God, Prophet Bushiri was also accused of raping two women.
ECG church spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo earlier issued a statement, saying the Hawks had arrested Mary Bushiri before a scheduled appointment.
“The Hawks informed lawyers of our leaders, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and Prophetess Mary Bushiri, late Monday afternoon that they (Hawks) are requesting the couple to go to their offices by 11am (on Tuesday) accompanied by their lawyers to discuss an issue concerning a certain investment, pertaining to a certain company called Rising Estate,” said Nyondo.
“We are told that as the prophet and lawyers were getting prepared for the 11am appointment, the Hawks went to their house before the 11am appointment and arrested the prophet’s wife alone.”
Nyondo told African News Agency (ANA) before 2pm on Tuesday that the Bushiris were at the Hawks’ offices in Pretoria.
He said Bushiri went to the Hawks’ offices to hand himself after his wife’s arrest.
“He believes in the justice system of the country and he will abide by all what the law compels until all this war is done. As the matter is still currently under criminal investigation, we have been advised not to discuss this matter any further,” said Nyondo.
