Howard Feldman has observed that there is a huge difference in how the ANC reacts to its own corruption compared to how it deals with embarrassments such as Shepherd Bushiri and his wife fleeing the country.
The Bushiris have fled the country, and the South African government is angry. Very, very angry. After posting bail following their fraud and money laundering court appearance, the Bushiris, very smartly found themselves back in the promised land of Malawi, without a care in the world. Or so it seems. And no one is happy (aside from the couple).
As self-proclaimed prophets, perhaps it speaks to our lack of faith that are we are even surprised by this achievement. Perhaps we should view this as a "sign" that indeed the couple is holy, and that their mission in this world is sanctioned by the highest of authorities.
