Cashgate convicted prisoner Senzani: Bail bid withdrawn

The former Tourism Ministry principal secretary (PS) was on October 7 this year sentenced to three years and nine months imprisonment on offences of money laundering and theft, respectively.

Senzani’s new lawyer Ted Roka,who has replaced newly appointed diplomat Necton Mhura, confirmed the development.

However, Nyasa Times understand that the bail bid would be re-submitted at a later date.

Senzani pleaded guilty to stealing K63 million (about $158 000), which she later returned.

Her sprawling mansion in Area 6 is still being investigated by authorities.

The cashgate prisoner has however vowed to appeal against her sentences as she considered them too harsh.

Those that have never committed sin say “i” people,leave this with God for He alone is faithful and just, for it is written, no one is righteous,not even one,remember? So God will judge this woman and let’s refrain from making silly comments because we are equally sinners. Instead of showering insults at this woman, let’s ask God to forgive her and our sins. You never know, maybe this woman has already been forgiven by God.

She stole more than what she declared but she is a mulakho mlandu aufinyira uwu. Onse ali kundende bwanji siumukunena kuti awakhululukire. Azimayi ena akuberekera kundende kulera anawo konko. Ngati mumadziwana muzingopititsa nsima.
