Five Home Affairs Officials Suspended Over Bushiri's Fraudulent Papers

It seems like the name of Shepherd Bushiri continues to haunt the legal system of the Republic of South Africa, this time around the name of Shepherd Bushiri has resurfaced in a form of five officials from the department of home affairs finding themselves suspended, this comes after they have been figured that they played a role in creating fraudulent documents for the self proclaimed prophet and fugitive to law Shepherd Bushiri. What the department has confirmed to the public is that the five officials are currently facing internal charges and disciplinary processes.

The Minister of Home Affairs in South Africa came under fire from both the public and from the members of the National Assembly, and he had to make sure that his department must provide concrete answers as in how did Shepherd Bushiri came about in the country, and there were also questions raised about his alleged escape from the country as there were questions raised about which border security he used as he managed to escape to his home country, Malawi.

Minister Aaron Motsoaledi assured the members of the home affairs portfolio committee that this matter is currently investigated, and that he was not free to reveal every information due to the fact that he might compromise evidence. Motsoaledi also clarified that the investigations that he is currently involved with are about how he came about to be in South Africa in the first instance, and the matters of how he escaped the country when he was wanted by the authorities is a matter that is handled by the Hawks and the SAPS.

The little information that the minister revealed to the Home Affairs portfolio committee is that the five home affairs officials are allegedly have been identified to have participated on the fraudulent documents of the Malawian fugitive, its most likely that there will be more arrests that are to be made by the police.
