South African Based Malawian Prophet, SHEPHERD BUSHIRI, has been given a one week ultimatum by the Zambian government to tender an apology.
Prophet BUSHIRI recently warned Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs, Reverend GODFRIDAH SUMAILI, for claiming that she influenced the blocking of Zimbabwean PROPHET UEBERT ANGEL into Zambia earlier this month.
But Copperbelt Province Minister, MR. BOWMAN LUSAMBO, said that a forensic audit on the operations of the emerald mine owned by PROPHET BUSHIRI, in Lufwanyama district will be conducted to ensure that the interests of the Zambian people are safeguarded.
This is according to a statement issued to 5fm radio by the office of MR. LUSAMBO.
President EDGAR LUNGU pointed out, Zambia just like any other country reserves the express right to admit or turn down any visitor as deemed it by the immigration authorities.
And MR. LUSAMBO said that by admonishing Reverend. SUMAILI publicly, PROPHET BUSHIRI has elected to attack the Republic of Zambia and its people.
He said failure by PROPHET BUSHIRI to apology will attract sanctions including the possible revocation of his mining licence.
