Malawi Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Steve Kayuni says that the Bushiri's argument that if they are extradited they will be unjustly treated in South Africa does not concern them because, "... the law here is very clear".

"It doesn't really concern us because the law here is very clear. The extradition act [on the part of Malawi ] talks about any person, there is no inclination as to citizenship.

"Any person - whether you are Malawian or not - you can be extradited, processed under that law/provision," Kayuni said on Monday.
