Millionaire flambouyant preacher, Shepherd Bushiri and his wife, have been arrested. They were wanted in South Africa for fraud and money-laundering charges. They were arrested in his native Malawi on Wednesday, police said.

Shepherd Bushiri, a self-proclaimed prophet known for “miracles” and an opulent lifestyle, skipped to Malawi last week in breach of strict bail conditions imposed by a South African court.

Malawian police launched a manhunt for the fugitive on Tuesday after Interpol issued an arrest warrant in Pretoria.“The prophet and his wife handed themselves over to the police on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, when they got wind of their impending arrest,” police spokesman James Kadadzera said in a statement.

He said the couple will be taken to court.

Bushiri’s spokesman, Ephraim Nyondo, denied the couple’s arrest was sparked by the warrant. He said Bushiri had vowed to present himself to the Malawi police to demonstrate “commitment that he is not a fugitive.”

“He is in Malawi to seek justice, which he believes he cannot be accorded in South Africa,” Nyondo said.

According to France 24, Bushiri, who made his wealth through donations from followers of his Enlightened Christian Gathering church in Pretoria, claims that he fears for his life in South Africa. The mogul has huge investments in the mining, telecommunications and luxury sectors.

The South African authorities, who are grappling to establish how he left the country, have initiated legal proceedings to secure his extradition.
