Former Justice minister and attorney general Ralph Kasambara will have to wait until October to have his conspiracy to murder appeal heard.
Judiciary spokesperson Mlenga Mvula said all judges both for High Court and Supreme Court have gone on annual summer vacation.
“They will be back in October and this is when the judges will be appointed to hear the appeal case,” said Mvula.
Kasambara was convicted in July of conspiracy to murder former Budget Director Paul Mphwiyo two years ago, an attempted murder that triggered and exposed the K30 billion loot of public money at Capital Hill, the seat of government in Lilongwe.
Judge Michael Mtambo is yet to sentence Kasambara, Pika Manondo and Kumwembe.
