DA requests update on the Bushiris’ extradition

Published on

The DA has released a statement confirming that it has written to the Home Affairs Committee to request a meeting and update from those involved in the extradition proceedings of the Bushiris.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) took to Twitter on Sunday, 22 November 2020, to circulate a statement confirming that it has requested an update on the extradition of self-proclaimed prophet, Shepherd Bushiri, and his wife, Mary Bushiri. The party wrote the request to the Chairperson of the Home Affairs Committee, Bongani Bongo. The statement touched on the contentious matter that has put Minister Naledi Pandor front and centre of the ongoing saga.

The statement read, “The Sunday Independent today reported that the Bushiris had help from both the Malawian and South African Governments to escape South Africa, in a plot that involved them being issued with diplomatic passports bearing fake names and disguises before allegedly being spirited away on the Malawian President Lazarus Chakwera’s hired jet. In light of these allegations, it is imperative that the CCTV footage from the Waterkloof Air Force Base be made available to the investigation and the committee.”

This is the same matter that Pandor has allegedly vehemently denied and threatened legal action against the publication. It is unclear whether the request will be met, as the state has continued to maintain its silence on the matter.
