Kasambara: Critical but stable

A family member said on Saturday that his condition remains “critical but stable”.

Kasambara, a suspect in the shooting of former budget director, Paul Mphwiyo who survived assassination attempt in 2013, has been receiving treatment for a heart-ailment.

He was remanded to prison on Wednesday after Justice Michael Mtambo ruled that his bail must be revoked because there was evidence that he infringed on the privacy of the judges, hence he did not comply with bail conditions.

Kasambara was put behind bars at Maula Prison and transferred on Thursday to Zomba Maximum Prison but was evacuated to the hospital after his heart condition deteriorated.

His brother said Kasambara “hasn’t really gotten better.”

Kasambara has since appealed for a stay on the bail revocation by Justice Mtambo who ruled on Wednesday that Kasambara’s bail must be revoked because there was evidence that he infringed on the privacy of the judges, hence he did not comply with bail conditions.

In May, Kasambara had asked Mtambo to recuse himself from the case because he was “playing the role of a prosecution advocate”, but the judge refused to do so.
