Bushiri and wife, Mary make it to the headlines

Pretoria Magistrate Court has found that there has not been an unreasonable delay in the R102-million fraud case against self-proclaimed Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, his wife Mary and their co-accused.

The couple's co-accused Willah Mudolo's lawyer brought an application for an inquiry in terms of section 342A of the Criminal Procedure Act into a delay in proceedings and finalizing the investigation.

Mudolo, his wife Zethu and Lindiwe Ntlokoane appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday on charges of fraud, theft and money laundering relating to an alleged scam in which investors were defrauded of R102-million.

The investment scheme was allegedly done through a company owned by Mudolo and his wife.

Bushiri and his wife Mary fled to Malawi a week after being released on R200 000 bail each under strict bail conditions. Shortly after leaving, Bushiri said in a Facebook post they had left South Africa for their own safety.

The court has granted a postponement to August 2022 for further investigations into the matter.
