Kasambara: Stepping out of police car when he was arrested

Mtambo sitting at High Court in Lilongwe ordered revocation of bail  angered by Kasambara application for the judge to rescue himself from the case of shooting former budget director Paul Mphwiyo, saying it was just a delaying tactic.

The Judge also said Kasambara and co-accused MacDonald Kumwembe were threatening the judge himself and state witnesses hence his revoking the bail on security grounds.

Kasambara was cleared of the charge of attempted murder; however the judge had allowed the charge of conspiracy to commit murder to proceed.

The Judge however said the State has made out a prima facie case against attorney Kasambara on conspiracy to murder which the lawyer needs to defend himself.

Kasambara has applied for stay order that his confinement should start on Friday as he has “some personal issues” before then.

Principles of natural justice have not been followed by both the DPP and Justice Ntambo. If RK was a threat to the security of Mtambo DPP should have brought the matter before another judge. Here Mtambo is both a prosecutor and a judge in a case involving his interests eg security and cv.

Mtambo has confined that he is both a prosecutor and a judge in this trial of the trio. It’s no longer a secret before all of us that they will not get fair trial.

A call for mistrial is worth mounting by all learned lawyers.
