Malawian government probe the award of diplomatic passports to South Africa based prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary.

Bushiri was issued a diplomatic passport following political directives.

It is revealed that Bushiri is a close associate of politician Ben Phiri, who was wielding much power in the DPP government.

Phiri is reported to have influenced events to have the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) Church leader get the diplomatic passports.

However, the current government want to investigate abuse in issuing diplomatic passports.

The Minister of Homeland Security Richard Chimwendo Banda wants those diplomatic passports to be revoked.
