STATE WANTS BUSHIRI CASE ADJOURNED TO MARCH 2024

By Our Reporter

Chief Resident Magistrate Madalitso Chimwaza is tommorow, Tuesday expected to deliver her ruling on the state application to adjourn to March 2024 an extradition case involving Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife, Mary.

Senior State Advocate Dzikondianthu Malunda made the request when explaining reasons why their only witness, Sibongile Mzinyathi, Director of Public Prosecutions in Guateng Province in South Africa reported late for court proceedings on Monday.

He told the court they needed to have enough time with the witness.

Malunda earlier indicated the witness had flight implications in Nairobi, Kenya while on his way to the capital, Lilongwe.

But defence lawyer, Wapona Kita argued that both the state and South Africa government were not ready to proceed with the case.

Ironically, on October 10 this year, court ordered the stateto pay K560 000 as courts of proceedings for delayed submission of certain requested documents.

During the proceedings, Mzinyathi asked for protection against Kita on his cross-examination on the flight delays that forced the court to adjourn the case to around 4pm.

The Bushiris, who fled to Malawi in November 2020 under controversial circumstances, are wanted in South Africa to answer fraud and money laundering charges.

However, they have repeatedly maintained they can’t get fair trial in the rainbow nation besides security threats to their lives there.
