‘Hardcore criminals’ Mvula and Gombwa get bail

The High Court in Blantyre on Monday granted bail to two of the four suspected hardcore criminals, Chipiliro Gombwa and Dumisani Mvula who are answering to murder, robbery with violence and carjacking charges.

Dumisani Mvula: On bail

Dumisani Mvula: On bail

Dumisani Mvula, son to renowned political and social commentator Humphrey Mvula, Dickson Mangombe, Andy Machinjiri and Chipiliro Gombwa were arrested on 3rd January this year by southern region police through its Anti-Motor Theft branch.

The law-enforcers, in the process of arrest, recovered a pistol and a gun pump with 260 live ammunitions.

The four, according to police, confessed to have carjacked seven vehicles and committed three murder cases.

They were committed to High Court by the Blantyre Magistrate Court as the lower court does not have authority to try murder cases. They have been on remand ever since the arrest.

And on Monday two of the suspects, Mvula, 23, and Gombwa, 35, were granted bail by Justice Redson Kapindu after pleading not guilty to murder, robbery with violence and carjacking charges.

According to police, Mvula and Gombwa confessed to have stolen Mazda Bongo and killed the owner in the process. They also confessed to have stolen Toyota Hirux (double cabin) that belonged to Malawi Telecommunications Limited (MTL) and killing the driver, Geoffrey Msichi- who was an ex-policeman.

The four suspects are also connected to the theft of Toyota Prado, which belonged to undisclosed cabinet minister, and the murder of Mohammed Makadamu, a businessman in Limbe town whose body was dumped together with his vehicle at Kanjedza residential area.

But appearing in court, contrary to police claims that they admitted to the offences, they two denied any wrong doing by taking a not guilty plea.

They have been told to surrender their travel documents, report to Blantyre police station every week on Monday. They are also bonded with K100,000 cash for Mvula and K300,000 cash for Gondwe. None cash bail  bonds of  K500,000 to Mvula and K1 million to Gombwa.

They have also been told not to leave Blantyre without a written permission of the officer in charge of Blantyre Police.

I agree with number 9. Dumisani Mvula akungomunamizila, we know the story kungoti a police akupezerapo mwayi cos his gfather is not strong nowadays. His friends used his fon, kodi inu anzanu akafuna kuyimba fon simumawabwereka? Angakuuzeni kuti akuyimbila kuti? We all know kuti a police athu are trying to cover their fellow policemen who were involved in this nde popeza ukakhala mu cell umakhala wopandq voice nkona akuyankhula momwe angathere. Koma am telling u these boys are innocent. Amaphawo anali a police. Bwanji that policeman ankati anatenga mfuti ya boma wati zii sakumutchulanso. Wake up Malawi
