Speculations are rife that the couple may have been smuggled out of South Africa with the assistance of both the South African and Malawian President's. The newly elected President, Lazarus Chakwere flew into South Africa for a State visit with South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa. Although there is nothing untoward about a State visit, this particular one turned into a Diplomatic blunder because HE Chakwere's plane was denied departure and only allowed to depart behind schedule because South African authorities demanded to search his plane for Shepard Bushiri and his wife.

The weekend before last, South Africans were left dumbfounded when news of Pastor Bushiri and his wife were reported to have fled the rule of law by flying back to Malawi. The pastor and his wife are still facing criminal charges after it was alleged that the two were involved in money laundering and fraud. For weeks, Pastor Bushiri’s congregation held vigils and stood outside the court as their “Papa” was allegedly being targeted by the State.

Despite his congregation showing him full support since his apprehension, by holding vigils and prayer sessions outside court, the Shepard Bushiri shocked everyone by fleeing the country. Knowing full well that his freedom is at stake, the good Shepard conveniently disappeared after receiving bail of R200 000.00 and left his devoted congregants shocked and father-less.

The South African Department of Home Affairs is yet to establish how the flamboyant pastor Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary skipped the country but the Department is adamant they didn't hitch a ride with Malawian President, Lazarus Chakwera. Minister of Home Affairs, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, has reiterated that the Departments of security and justice including their respective ministers must provide further explanations, it also wants to see video footage of the Malawian President’s departure from Waterkloof Airbase.

As we speak, the Bushiri's are free and maintain their innocence, after a local magistrate deemed their arrest illegal and set them free. The couple isn't planning on going back to South Africa and have also forfeited their bail money and R5.5 million mansion to the South African government.

Who is fooling who here?
