Shephered Bushiri warns South African Media

Self-proclaimed prophet Shephered Bushiri has warned South Africa’s City Press newspaper.

This comes after the paper reported that security agencies are investigating credible claims that the fugitive and his wife Mary, have been in and out of South Africa several times since his dramatic escape in 2020.

The paper further reported that the Bushiri’s most recent visit was in April.

However, Bushiri quickly took to social media to slam the paper.


I know who is behind your stories and I know your entire syndicate. I am also aware of those crooked and corrupt police officers that you work with. I denied giving you money and you promised to make my life a living hell. You arrested me and tarnished my name. You are still doing it now and you know – your days are numbered. My silence does not in any way indicate ignorance.

It is very unfortunate that you have decided to call me guilty even before I have been given the legal opportunity to prove my innocence. This is why you keep pushing your media propaganda forward. But your presumptions will always prove to be what they are- presumptions and baseless in nature.

I have safely kept away all the evidence against your corrupt journalists and police officers which I will present in court. I will expose you trust me on that one.

You can misrepresent facts on social media and make it appear as though you are at an advantage with your propaganda, but trust me, the law in Malawi does not use media. They use evidence and facts!

See you soon on the other side of the law!,” he posted.

The Bushiri’s dramatically left South Africa in November 2020 after they were accused of fraud and money-laundering.

Last week, the Malawian Magistrate ruled that South Africa’s eye witness are supposed to travel to Malawi in order to testify physical in Malawi’s High Court.
