High Court discontinues bail conditions for MP Kabwila, others

The High Court in Blantyre has ruled that Salima north west MP Jessie Kabwila and two other officials of opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP)  should stop reporting to Area 30 police headquarters as fulfillment of their bail condition.

Kabwila: Bail conditions suspended, seeking judicial review

Gustave Kaliwo, lawyer for Kabwila, Peter Chakhwantha MP and Ulemu Msungama said the court has discontinued the fulfillment of the bail conditions until the hearing of a judicial review on the matter.

“The judge has granted stay leave,” said Kaliwo, challenging the arrest of Kabwila, Chakhwantha and Msungama on treason charges a year ago based on a Whatsapp chatroom messages.

“The court has said they should stop appearing before the police, the court has suspended their bail conditions,” he said.

Kaliwo said the High Court will on March 28/29 hear the judicial review on the case which will determine whether the State should continue prosecuting the three  or not.

Some sections of society see the case as politically motivated to silence the vocal Malawi Congress Party parliamentarians.

Shame to DPP. A party that is destroying our country through theft of Maize and
government money ment for development.

You will not silence our opposition MPs as long as you continue with
mismanaging our Country. It’s sad that the Country has become more poor
than when it was under Mai wathu Joyce Banda leadership.
