Judge Charles Mkandawire adjourned the case on Friday after deputy director of the graft busting body, the Anti Corruption Bureau Reyneck Matemba said out of the 14 other suspects in the case, 10 were civil servants.

Matemba said Kaphamtengo and his wife, Yvone were using Noveta and General Dealers to plunder the K200 million public money.

Noveta and General Dealers is registered under the Kaphamtengo family of Cornelius and Yvone.

On Friday, three state witnesses were paraded in the court.

Matemba said in an interview that this was a straight forward case because, he said, after the public money was cleared in commercial banks, Kaphamtengo immeditely issued cheques to his accomplices.

The suspects are currently on court bail.
