They are facing fraud, corruption, and money laundering charges, but magistrate Nyimba said the couple's corruption trial would only be considered once papers for their extradition were processed.

Meanwhile Court for Malawi don free prophet Shepherd Bushiri and im wife afta dia arrest earlier today.

Self-proclaimed Malawian prophet, Shepherd Bushiri, and his wife, Mary, on Wednesday handed themselves over to police in Lilongwe, five days after they skipped bail and fled South Africa.

According to local media, Magistrate Viva Nyimba made the ruling based exclusively on the legality of the couple's arrest in that country and not their impending case in South Africa.

South Africa wants the two to be extradited to the Rainbow Nation to answer charges against them.

Khumbo Soko, one of the presidential elections case lawyers, has said today that he has stopped representing the Bushiri couple who are seeking bail following their arrest on Wednesday.

"He is not a fugitive", said Bushiri's spokesman Ephraim Nyondo.

"Chief among the causes of the delay was South African Government's decision not to allow Malawi's advance delegation to travel back home together with President Chakwera and his delegation citing unspecified security reasons". Bushiri made his wealth through donations from followers of his Enlightened Christian Gathering church in Pretoria.

"The Bushiri matter has been very concerning to all of us", he told local news channel ENCA.

The mogul has huge investments in the mining, telecommunications and luxury sectors.

Ramaphosa said he was expecting a "detailed report on the whole Bushiri saga. then we'll see what action needs to be taken because it should never have happened the way it did".
