Kambara: Court orders judgemeny should be live on television

The judge set July 21 for his determination.

Times TV applied to court for broadcasting rights of the  judgement day.

And in his ruling on Tuesday, Mtambo said Times can go ahead to broadcast the judgement.

Howevere, he gave the restrictions that Times TV should cover live in court when the judge enters the courtroom until when he will finish reading his judgement.

Former justice minister Kasambara, businessperson Pika Manondo and former Malawi Defence Force soldier Macdonald Kumwembe will be in the dock waiting for their fate.

Kasambara was found with a case to answer, while Manondo and Kumwembe were found with conspiracy to commit murder.

Speaking to Nyasa Times, lawyer for Times TV, nnocent Kalua hailed the court;s decision as “groundbreaking” for the media giant in Malawi, the Times Group.

The judge has ” ruled that Times TV can beam live the judgement  and Malawians will watch the judge delivering the ruling,” said Kalua.

I managed to read the judgement. It reads, “based on the evidence and argument provided by the prosecuting team, there is inconsistencies to convince this that RK SC has a case to answer before this court… I therefore acquit him.” This tells me that justice is the way to go done by real intellectuals. Bravo Mtambo LLD and RK MS to show that you do not personalize issue but you do according to how it should be.

Just keep quite you. RK will not be found guilty. Mary Kachale bungled the case. She is emotional and unfocused. RK was just TOO GOOD FOR HER.

Kasambara was found with a case to answer, while Manondo and Kumwembe were found with conspiracy to commit murder. – Tikutanthauza kuti chani? What “case to answer” does Kasambara have hanging on his neck? Tilembereni zoti tipezepo nzeru
