Misozi: Murder suspect for killing Gasa (insert)

The court was expected to hear Chanthunya take plea on May 31 but has shifted the date to June 4  where a ruling will also be made on his bail bid which was made through his lawyer Chrispin Ngunde..

Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs spokesperson Pilirani Masanjala said no reason was given by the court why it has shifted the date to June 4.

Gasa’s body, a 25-year-old Malawi College of Accountancy (MCA) student, was found buried under a concrete floor in a bathroom at Mwala Cottage in Monkey Bay, Mangochi, which allegedly belongs to Chanthunya.

Chanthunya, who is currently on remand at Chichiri Prison in Blantyre, escaped to South Africa in 2010 allegedly with the assistance of some law-enforcers after being questioned by police in Blantyre following the discovery of Gasa’s body at the cottage.

However, International Police (Interpol) arrested Chanthunya in January 2012 at a residence of a Malawian woman in Rustenburg in South Africa’s North Western Province.

Courts will give him bail but should not bother to ask Interpol for any assistance in case he runs away again beyond SA. If granted bail both the Judge and Lawyer are Corrupt. Murder cases in the country are becoming worse now and this is why we are recalling death sentence for all proven murderers DISO KU DISO .

Bail for murder?! Even the lawyer representing him should BE ashamed to even ask the judge that question in court.. murders should be left to rot or hung for their crimes.

The girls are to blame too. Parents send children to school to learn acqire knowledge and skills that will benefit themselves tomorrow. They sacrifice to put them through tertiary education but instead of appreciating the effort they want to start living a higher life by going out with men who are unfaihful to their marriage vows. The wages of sin is death. But the gift of God in Christ Jesus is eternal life. Many lessons to draw from here. Jesus loves us
