The latest: Self-proclaimed prophet Shepherd Bushiri, his wife, Mary, Landiwe Ntlokwana and Zethu Mudolo were granted bail in the Pretoria Central Magistrate's Court on Wednesday. "Bail is only a means of securing the attendance of the accused person in the rest of the criminal proceedings," Magistrate Thandi Theledi said during her judgment.

The details: Bushiri, his wife, Mary, Ntlokwana and Zethu Mudolo are facing charges of fraud, theft and money laundering in connection with an investment scheme worth R102 million.

A closer look: In her judgment, Theledi found that the State did not provide substantial evidence that accused 2, Zethu Mudolo, would be a flight risk.
