Bushiri for the time being, sits safely in Malawi after fleeing the country with his wife Mary. So for now, it looks like Pastor Mboro, the whistleblower in the Bushiri case, can set aside his concerns about them. At least for a while. We reported that on November 3, the bail hearings dragged on in Pretoria. Well, they got granted bail, which shattered a lot of people. After all, most people assumed they were flight risks. Now, some hilarious memes pop up on Twitter.
Pastor Bushiri and his wife Mary faced charges of fraud, and more
Pastor Bushiri and his wife Mary faced charges of fraud, theft, and money laundering to the value of over R100 million. And apparently, they probably never resided legally in South Africa. Nevertheless, they accumulated millions of followers who devoutly prayed for his release. Well, in a way, their prayers came true as somehow he left the country and turn up in Malawi. Now he decrees the terms and conditions under which he returns. If that ever happens voluntarily.
Unsurprised, South Africans now slam the court for allowing them bail. And, others talk about the flock left behind. While President Ramaphosa allegedly throws his toys out the cot, many people see the funny side of things. So Bushiri critics take to Twitter and share ironic jokes and some really hilarious memes. South Africans obviously know how to laugh in the face of adversity and disappointing outcomes.

Those he left behind bring some unsympathetic responses. Talking of abandoning his followers this meme summed it up:
