High Court reserves ruling on Bushiri’s arrest warrant

The High Court has reserved its ruling on application by Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife, Mary, restraining further arrests by police.

The inter-party hearing was heard in camera before Judge Kenyatta Nyirenda this afternoon in Lilongwe.

According to lawyer representing the Bushiris; Wapona Kita the Court is yet to set date for the hearing of the trial.

“In short the Court has reserved its ruling on the application for the continuation of injunction meaning that the Court is not ready with its decision.

“The Court would like to go through the arguments and come up with proper reasoned ruling, a date has not yet been set so we will keep waiting until the Court informs us when it is ready to deliver its ruling,” said Kita.

He added that as it stands, the couple is free.

“The status quo remains that they are free to go where they want to go, do what they want to do, attend Court when the date is set as it has been in the past,” said Kita.

The couple is expected to appear before Chief Resident Magistrate Patrick Chirwa on Monday next week for continuation of their extradition application case hearing.
