JOHANNESBURG - A Centurion property, valued at R5.5-million and owned by fugitives Mary and Shepherd Bushiri, has been forfeited to the state after the pair violated their bail conditions by leaving South Africa.

Magistrate Thandi Theledi asked for the Bushiris to be called three times at their hearing on Thursday.
