Malawi minister’s signature awaited for arrest warrants of Bushiris

Cape Town – The process to have self-proclaimed prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary arrested has begun, the Malawian government said on Tuesday.

On Friday, Malawi’s Information Minister and Government spokesperson, Gospel Kazako, confirmed receiving a formal request from the South African government for the Bushiris’ extradition.

“The attorney-general is preparing to proceed for the signature of the minister of homeland security in Malawi. Once it is signed, it will be submitted to court for issuance of warrants of arrest by the court.

’’When that is done, prophet Bushiri and his wife will be arrested,” said Kazako, TimesLive reported.

Asked if the Bushiris could be arrested as early as this week, Kazako said: “It will depend when the minister signs and when the courts will act on the request from the attorney-general.”
