Confirming their arrest, police spokesperson James Kadadzera said in a statement; 

“The prophet and his wife handed themselves over to the police … (in Lilongwe on) Wednesday, November 18, 2020 when they got wind of their impending arrest.”

Bushiri’s spokesperson, Ephraim Nyondo however denied the couple’s arrest was sparked by the warrant. AFP reported he said  Bushiri had vowed to present himself to the Malawi police to demonstrate “commitment that he is not a fugitive.”
