According to Bushiri’s spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo, his 8-year-old daughter was scheduled to receive medical treatment in Nairobi.


Nyondo adds she was accompanied by three guardians.


"Prophet Bushiri and Prophetess Bushiri were not part of the delegation.


"The daughter was duly referred by competent Malawi medical professionals to seek further medical treatment and all required immigration details were in place to facilitate her travel through a chartered air ambulance," says Nyondo.


He adds authorities have not given them information why the 8-year-old was denied the right to lawfully access medical attention after being referred by a doctor.


"The child’s condition remains critical at the same medical facility which referred her to seek further medical attention in Kenya," he says.


Nyondo adds this was not the first time Bushiri’s daughter was referred to Kenya for medical attention.


"The child has been flying there several times and I am shocked with this isolated blocking.


"Shockingly, a few hours after the child was denied her right to good health and right to life, Malawi Police issued a warrant of arrest for Prophet Bushiri and Prophetess Mary Bushiri.


"I still don’t have the grounds for the warrant and, according to the media explained the police haven’t explain the warrant."


Bushiri and his wife fled to Malawi at the end of last year, saying they would nor receive a fair trial in South Africa.


They were arrested on charges of fraud and money laundering.


The South African government have issued warrants of arrest for the couple and an extradition request has also been filed.
