DURBAN - Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi on Tuesday told Parliament's Portfolio Committee that five officials have been charged internally and are currently receiving disciplinary actions for assisting self-proclaimed prophet Shepherd Bushiri.
According to reports, the fugitive Bushiri was assisted by five officials while attempting to acquire permanent residency in South Africa. Due to the sensitivity of the matter, Minister Motsoaledi stated that he would not go into detail about the case.
Motsoaledi stated that they do have the 'high-powered' case ongoing which involves Bushiri but does not regard the way he escaped South Africa. The centre of the investigation into permanent residency is how Bushiri managed to get the documents needed.
According to SowetanLIVE, the minister refused to answer media questions or comment on reports that Bushiri had so-called 'captured' the Home Affairs Department. A report by The South African revealed that Motsoaledi stated that after suspension, the officials implicated in the matter will most likely be subjected to investigation by law
South Africans had strong and varying opinions about Bushiri. Take a look at some of the tweet.
