… involved President Ramaphosa
South African prophet Shepherd Bushiri is central to a K500 million Malawi Kwacha (R10 million) extortion scandal intended to make his alleged criminal cases in South Africa disappear.
Sowetan Live reports that the enlightened Christian collector-leader was approached by police officers and advisers to President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The suspects, it was reported, claimed R10 million (more than 500 million Malawian kwacha) from Bushiri to crush all criminal cases against the Malawi-born prophet, whose publication claims to vary from money laundering, extortion and rape.
Bushiri rejected the offer and chose to keep his day in court. However, he took another bold decision when he decided to open an extortion case at the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) against the police and the two people who claimed to be Ramaphosa assistants.
He also reported the Shenanigans to the Inspector General of the Intelligence Intelligence Setlhomamaru Dintwe.
Bushiri claimed that the police harassed him and marked his passport and even flew to his church in Pretoria with a helicopter and threatened to arrest him on the pulpit for his millions of church members.
Ipid spokesman Moses Dlamini confirmed that Bushiri had filed an extortion case with them and that the investigation was under way.
"I can confirm that a complaint has been filed with our provincial office in Gauteng, an investigation is being carried out by Ipid," he said in a written reply.
Dengwe & # 39; s legal counsel-lawyer Jay Govender confirmed that Bushiri had filed an extortion complaint with them and that it was being investigated.
"We have received a complaint from Dr. Prophet Bushiri and the case is still under investigation and therefore we can not comment at this stage," she said in a written reply.
Bushiri confirmed through his lawyer Ntsako Baloyi that he had submitted extortion complaints to the two law enforcement agencies.
Buishiri maintains his innocence in all cases of which he claims that they were invented to extort money from him and to foul his good name and reputation.
