As previously reported by The South African, the state wanted bail to be denied, arguing that the Bushiri’s were at flight risk, however, his lawyer Anneline Van Den Heever argued otherwise.
“I deny that any offence was ever committed by me. I have no reasons to run away. I have no reason to evade my trial as I need to vindicate myself,” Bushiri is quoted as saying in his affidavit. Bushiri has also already handed over his passport to the investigating officer.
Please be informed that the bail hearing of our spiritual leaders has been adjourned to Wednesday, 4 Nov 2020 for bail ruling @10:00 hours (CAT)
We thank you for your prayers and also for your unwavering resolve to always stand with our leaders.
Let’s meet again on Wednesday! pic.twitter.com/3SZFM8Brfi
