As the rumor continues to swell in the country that the fugitive Shepherd Bushiri came to South Africa three times, Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi says there is no evidence to prove that.
The minister on Tuesday while speaking with the media said that there is no evidence that the self-acclaimed prophet Shepherd Bushiri visited the country three times as rumored.
He made this known during a meeting with the National Council of Provinces on Tuesday.
The controversial prophet escaped with his wife, Mary Bushiri, late last year after he skipped bail where he was on trial.
South Africa has sent an extradition request to Malawi to send him back to stand trial.
Motsoaledi said that despite reports that Bushiri has been to South Africa on three separate occasions, there was nothing to prove that.
He said even the Hawks distanced themselves from the reports.
“Nobody ever denied that Bushiri escaped out of this country. On the contrary, a team led by military intelligence, state security, and the police, in other words, a team led by the Minister of Defence, the Minister of Police with their respective departments which includes home affairs, sat down to investigate this matter. I am sure you are aware that the Hawks, which are leading that team, made a statement that they will never release the results of that investigation because it is a matter that is going to court,” said Motsoaledi.
“At no stage had we ever denied the fact that Bushiri has escaped and officials might have helped him. I don’t know, honorable member, where I ever said no official helped them. It’s clear he has been helped by somebody, whether it is home affairs, police or what, state officials might have helped Bushiri and the Hawks at the appropriate time will give information.”
