Pastor Shepherd Bushiri and wife arrested for fraud, money laundering

Controversial South Africa-based pastor, Shepherd Bushiri, has been arrested.

A statement from the church says he and his wife, Mary, were arrested by the Hawks on fraud and money laundering charges.

“As you will remember, from last year, we have struggled with reports that our father was guilty. He has been detained and is being questioned by the Hawks in Silverton, Pretoria.”

Bushiri spokesperson, Maynard Manyowa, said:

“Police came in the morning to the hotel, picked them up, saying they wanted to talk to them.

They wouldn’t tell us exactly why or how. They didn’t take them to as police station, but they took them to the headquarters of the Hawks.”

Early last year, reports emerged that Bushiri was sending about R15 million a month to his birth country Malawi.

It was said the money was transported out of South Africa to Malawi in the pastor’s private jet and a few vehicles.
