Former Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Raph Kasambara has returned to prison after being discharged by Blantyre Adventist Hospital (BAH), and is being kept on remand for alleged conspiracy to commit a crime in the attempted murder of Paul Mphwiyo.
High Court Judge Michael Mtambo revoked bail conditions for Kasambara over alleged infringement of the judge’s private space by secretly accessing private information.
In the case, Macdonald Kumwembe and Pika Manondo are facing charges of conspiracy and attempting to murder former Ministry of Finance budget director Paul Mphwiyo at the gate of his Area 43 house in Lilongwe on September 13 2013 while Kasambara faces the charge of conspiracy to commit the crime.
Kasambara has been at hospital for heart condition but according to BAH sister-in-charge, Magret Takomana, he was discharged on Thursday.
Commissioner of Prisons Kennedy Nkhoma said Kasambara was remanded at Chichiri Prison after being discharged. He was reportedly taken to Zomba Maximum Security Prison later.
