Considered fugitives from justice, the couple went back to their native Malawi through questionable ways, with reports then alleging that they could have been smuggled out of the country in Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera’s jet. However, Chakwera who was in South Africa on a working visit denied such allegations with Union Buildings also debunking that speculation.
Meanwhile, following weeks since a Warrant of Arrest for the Bushiris was issued by the Hawks, the Minister of Justice & Correctional Services, Ronald Lamola has followed up on his promise of lodging extradition papers as they attempt to bring back the prophet to answer to his crimes.
