Bad news for Bushiri

Co-charged Willah Mudolo's lawyer got an application for a request term of area 342A of the Criminal Procedure Act into a postponement in procedures and concluding the examination. 


Mudolo, his better half Zethu, and Lindiwe Ntlokoane showed up in the Pretoria judge's court on Wednesday on charges of extortion, robbery, and tax evasion identifying with a supposed trick where financial backers were swindled of R102m. 

The venture conspire was supposedly done through an organization possessed by Mudolo and his significant other. 

Bushiri and his significant other Mary escaped to Malawi seven days subsequent to being delivered on R200,000 bail each under severe bail conditions. Not long after leaving, Bushiri said in a Facebook post they had left SA for their security. 

They face a removal hearing. 

Public Prosecuting Authority (NPA) representative Lumka Mahanjana said on Wednesday the state gave motivations to the court on why another delay was vital. 

"The investigator helped the court to remember Willah Mudolo's refusal to apply for bail when the matter was first brought to court while his co-blamed were applying for bail. He later brought his bail application after his co-denounced were conceded bail," she said. 

Mahanjana said the state likewise gave the court a report on the removal interaction of the Bushiris from Malawi. 

"It was put on record that the Malawian Prosecuting Authority is anticipating a judgment of the survey stopped against the officers' judgment that South African observers can't affirm electronically [and] ought to rather affirm in Malawi at Lilongwe justice's court. At this stage, the date for the judgment is as yet unclear," Mahanjana said. 

The court allowed a delay to August 2022 for additional examinations concerning the matter. 

Mudolo's lawyer requested that the court correct his bail application and this will be heard on November 30 in the Pretoria officer's court.Court finds no unreasonable delay in R102m Shepherd Bushiri fraud case (
