Magalasi case flops again

The Senior Resident Magistrate Court in Lilongwe has this morning failed to start hearing a case involving former Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera) Chief Executive Officer Collins Magalasi because lawyers of both the state and defense were committed to other cases.

Magalasi: Case adjourned 

Magalasi is answering two charges of fraud and abuse of office in relation to the role he played in authorizing MERA to release K10 million to pay for the accommodation of delegates of the former ruling Democratic Progressive Party who had convened in Blantyre for the party’s convention in 2018.

Last Friday, the case failed to commence as Magalasi asked for more time to consult his lawyer on the abuse of office charge he is answering before taking plea.

This morning the case has failed to commence again as the Director of Public Prosecution as well as Magalasi’s lawyer are both committed with other cases at the high Court.

This has forced Senior Resident Magistrate Shyreen Chirwa to adjourn the matter to Thursday this week.
