PRETORIA – Self-proclaimed Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife will remain behind bars this weekend.

This after their bail application was postponed to Monday.

Bushiri, his wife Mary and several others are facing fraud, theft and money laundering charges over an elaborate pyramid scheme.

The state’s case for denying bail centres on the Bushiri’s being a flight risk because they have several passports and addresses.

In his affidavit, Bushiri denied ever interfering with witnesses or sending someone else to do so.

He also said that all passports were handed to the investigating team and that their children are still in South Africa.
