Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife back in court to hear bail outcome

The head of the Enlightened Christian Gathering church, Shepherd Bushiri, and his wife Mary have appeared in court in Pretoria on charges of fraud, money laundering, and contravention of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act.

Self-proclaimed Prophet, Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary, are expected to find out if they will be released on bail.

Bushiri handed himself over to the police on Tuesday, while his wife, Mary, was arrested.

They are facing charges of fraud, theft, and money laundering to the value of over R100-million.

The State which is opposing bail says it needs more time to investigate but, the Bushiris contend they can not be held while investigations continue.
