Judiciary spokesperson Mlenga Mvula confirmed Judge Michael Mtambo threw  out the application for Kasambara and two of his jail mates in the conspiracy to murder case because there are no special grounds to warrant bail pending appeal of the case to the Supreme Court.

“The juidge said there are no unusual circumstances to warrant bail for the convicted, they have no special grounds to be considered for bail pending for the appeal,” he said.

A once high flying lawyer Kasambara was jailed for 13 years for conspiracy to murder former Budget Director Paul Mphwiyo, an incident which triggered the K30 billion cashgate, the plunder of public resources at Capital Hill.

Kasambara’s co accused MacDonald Kumwembe and Pika Manondo were jailed to 15 years and 11 years each.

The judge noted there is no likelihood that the appeal will succeed.

Judiciaty sources indicate that the appeal will be heard in the Supreme Court of Malawi by next year .

“The judge noted there is no likelihood that the appeal will succeed.” Oh no, that’s a condescending tone not befitting of a lawyer. It’s like even judges at the supreme court cannot overturn that because they think no better than Mtambo.

Please lawyers challenge this man. We also participated in the 1993 referendum with all our strength to ensure no one man abuses anothers freedoms.

Nambewe, I know that there is one Supreme judge over human beings. Mind you this Supreme judge uses people to punish others. He can use anybody regardless of his blemish. I will give you an example. When the Israel sinned against God, He used the Babylonians who were not God fearing people to punish them. God has His own way of teaching people some lessons in life.

Kasambara is reaping what he sowed. Remember, God can not be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Kasambara has done a lot harms to people in this nation. For example: Kasambara assisted his mafia friend who was a pastor then to destroy one of the Evangelical Churches in Malawi. His friend is now a member of parliament representing a constituency in NU. We have been praying to God that He should protect His church by fighting those who stupidly think they are bigger, smarter than God. Kasambara must repent first, then should ask God to keep him healthy until… Read more »

“The judge noted there is no likelihood that the appeal will succeed.” What tosh! So he is the only one who understands and interprets the law in Malawi accurately?

The name Mtambo is tumbuka. Not all tumbukas are from the north. Some have their mothers from elsewhere. Use your brain to think, man!

I think if all the judges were clear as Mtambo, there would be no cashgate in Malawi. Judge Mtambo for Chief Justice
