JOHANNESBURG – The bail application of self-proclaimed prophet, Shepherd Bushiri, his wife, Mary, and three co-accused has resumed in the Pretoria Magistrates Court.

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

The State argues that they will abscond if they are granted bail.

The magistrate presiding over the group’s case made it clear on Friday already that she would not be delivering her bail verdict on Monday.

The State prosecutor said that they had a strong case and the details of its strength were in the charge sheet.
