DPP’s Mzomera spends night in police cell, to be released today

Opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) vocal regional governor for the North Christopher Nzomera Ngwira has spent a night in a police  cell because he failed to meet bail conditions on Thursday.

Mzomera Ngwira has spent a night in the cooler after failing to fulfil some bail conditions.

His  lawyer Christon Ghambi, Ngwira failed to pay the money because accounts officers at the court had already knocked off by the time they went out of court.

“We came out of court after 5pm and by then accounts officers had already knocked off. We expect to pay the cash this morning,” said Ghambi.

A police source said Ngwira will be released this Friday after he fulfills all the bail conditions set by senior resident magistrate Peter Kandulu.

Kandulu ordered Ngwira and four others to pay a bail bond of K200,000 each and bring a relation surety in form of witness with K500,000 each.

Ngwira and four other DPP members are facing charges of causing violence which left some people injured at a political rally held by the then leader of opposition  Lazarus Chakwera in 2016.

Meanwhile, Joe Nyirongo, Lumbani Munthali, George Mwatobe and Thembisile Mkosi were released yesterday.

The case is expected to return in court on 21 August as the state has so far paraded four out of 12 witnesses in the case.

When DPP cadres are arrested and then they flash handcuffs with either the Bible or the victory sign one wonders what message they want to convey. Are they trying to tell us that they are freedom fighters? Or are they prisoners of conscience? Let us not take things for granted. Are we saying all politically connected lawbreakers are victims of political machinations? It’s time we respected our laws and treated criminals according to what they deserve irrespective of their political connections or position in society whether current or formerly.
