Court dismisses State bid on Chisale bail revocation

Embattled former presidential aide, Norman Chisale narrowly  escaped another jail stint after the High Court in Blantyre dismissed the application for his bail revocation.

Chisale: Still on bail

The former presidential bodyguard to Peter Mutharika is answering attempted murder charges.

The State applied for Chisale’s bail revocation on grounds that the accused was allegedly interfering with one of the State’s witnesses, Moses Banda.

Prosecutors  tendered evidence of a phone call log analysis that was extracted by a specialist at National Police Headquarters, Wellington Chizakazi as evidence that Chisale was in contact with the witness.

The State also told the Court that the witness, once told a lead investigator in the case, that  Chisale threatened him not to sign court summons to be part of the State witnesses.

In his ruling, Judge Sylvester Kalembera noted that the State has failed to produce evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused had indeed interfered with the witness in question.

According to Kalembera, the state only established that there was a transaction between Mr Chisale and the witness but has failed to give substantive evidence on the nature of the transaction as well as who first made the calls.

The Judge, therefore, described the evidence as hearsay.

Meanwhile, the trial continues with the State parading its last three witnesses.

Chisale is being accused of attempting to murder a Blantyre based woman Sigere Amani, whom he shot on the leg last year.

Mtumbuka ndi Mtumbuka ngakhale ali Prophet. Komani wa FDH simumpeza ngakhale mudane naye. Chilungamo chidziyenda ngati madzi osati tribalism mku milandu komwe.

You are extremely right. Tumbukas have deep-rooted hatred towards other tribes in this country and they are using the courts to fight their perceived enemies/tribes. I am sorry to say this coz I have a few great friends from the North but the majority of them have proven otherwise.

Very true I have noted this Tumbukas hate Alomwe badly and their hate is bloody and murderous.And is seen through their court rulings just because courts are infested with Tumbukas.Very shameful

The problem you didn’t go futher with free church from your uncle Bakili Muluzi. Now you hate people who are just applying the law from your own “know me” mistakes ie, shooting, stealing.
