Magalasi, ‘Cash Madam’ to spend weekend in jail

Malawi Regulatory Authority (Mera) chief executive officer Collins Magalasi and his business partner Dorothy Shonga are to spend the weekend in police cell following the closure of courts in Lilongwe for disinfection over Covid-19.

Magalasi, Shonga and two staff members at Mera are answering charges bordering on theft and defrauding Mera.

The Lilongwe resident magistrate’s court was Friday expected to rule on bail application for the four.

However, the courts in Lilongwe have been sealed  as health officers were disinfecting the premises after one of the suspects in the infamous cashgate case  involving former director of Budget Paul Mphwiyo tested positive.

Court officials who were in direct contact with the unnamed suspect are in self isolation for two weeks.

The moment they just decided to steal they lost their freedom. Cheating does not pay, he missed standard 6 English lesson! Those days.

Justice delayed is Justice Denied, Bad that the Magistrates Court could not have provided a video link or released a written response to their Bail ruling in this and others cases. A miscarriage of Justice when an individual is forced to have their liberty and freedom taken away by spending more time in jail than necessary.

It is raining hard on the DPP systems. The umbrellas are being torn apart even our lawyers are running for cover. We saw the clouds but never knew the clouds had thunderstorms on their coattails. Yet Malawi is going about her business no more demonstrations!

These are tricks to punish the people. Now you can appreciate why we said MCP will never change. What has changed now is that they are able to be checked otherwise all these people would have been thrown in the crocodile river
