Call logs in Mphwiyo’s case suspected to be doctored -Wapona

Lead investigator Superintendent Kankhwala Chilimba presented the call logs on Tuesday but defence lawyer Wapona Kita attacked the call logs, calling them doctored.

Kita told the investigator that the call logs had been doctored when Chilinda resumed the witness stand for cross-examination.

”I put it to you that the call logs have been doctored,” said Kita to the lead investigator.

“ How come Mc Donald Kumwembe made a call on alleged Pika Manondo’s call logs?” he querried

However, Chilinda told the court that he only presented to court what was given to him by service providers through an order from the court.

State prosecutor Enock Chibwana told the court that the service provider, Airtel, would be competent to clarify the lawyer’s questions.

Chibwana said “ Airtel officials will clarify.”

Chilinda – who has put across damning evidence linking several of the accused persons in the shooting of Mphwiyo at the gate of his Area 43 residence on September 13 2013 – submitted call logs of the accused—Kasambara, Pika Manondo, MacDonald Kumwembe and Dauka Manondo—which indicated they were in contact on the day of the shooting and two days later.

Mphwiyo’s shooting on September 13, 2013 outside his house in Lilongwe opened a can of worms that led to the revelation of Cashgate, in which public officers, politicians and businesspersons looted billions of taxpayers money.

History tells me that government hired incompetent lawyers and lacks preparation that leads them to loss most cases. It is clear this case the govt has lost. We expect to pay huge sum money to the accused. Anything can be doctored including call log. Comments reveal the ignorance of some Nyasas on the art of doctoring.
