Prophet and loss

Fugitive prophet Shepherd Bushiri has told his followers that he is prepared to lose all his many millions of rands worth of property in South Africa.

“I am happy that I didn’t lose my life.”

Cheered on like a popstar, Bushiri told his followers that he was almost assassinated in Sandton.

In a video sent to Scrolla.Africa by one of his Malawian followers, the multi-millionaire told a large crowd after his release from jail that he could see that he would face an unfair trial in South Africa.

“I opened cases prior to my arrest against five police officers but no one is commenting on that,” he said.

“The cases I opened against these corrupt officers are serious cases for which I hoped to see justice.”

He said he thought justice would be served both ways. 

“If I am arrested for wrongdoing, why are the police officers against whom I opened cases still not arrested?” he asked.

There were loud cheers when he said: “My right to life is better than any assets in this world.”

How the controversial prophet and his wife Mary managed to sneak out of South Africa after being awarded R200,000 bail each, has still not been revealed. Bashiri was arrested in Malawi on Wednesday and released on Thursday afternoon.
