Magistrate Viva denies bail Malawi ex-spy chief, State House ICT officer

Lilongwe principal magistrate court has denied bail to former acting director of National Intelligence Service Kenam Kalilani and former chief ICT officer for State House Chance Chingwalungwalu who are facing charges of theft of government intelligence computers.

Magistrate Viva Nyimba: Innocence is presumed but no bail

This was after the state pleaded with the court to keep the two on remand as experts determine the information which the two retrieved from the intelligence system.

Magistrate Viva Nyimba has since adjourned the case to August 3, 2020.

The charge sheet read by principal resident magistrate Viva Nyimba says the offence was committed in June this year.

State prosecutor Moji Phiri said the police have managed to confiscate the computers and systems from their houses after a raid.

The prosecutor has asked the court to remand the two suspects until investigations on the matter are over.

William Chiwanje and Madalitso Kausi are representing the suspects.

Without tribalism, definately these people caught with government computers which were stolen too. I wonder why sokosi should Talk about nyau tribal. This tells how how empty you’re. I wonder if this is 2084. Be reasonable brother. Why are you so useless on important facts. Even if your child has stolen/ spying your movement, would you be glad to find out what your child has been doing on you? Be sensible. Idiots always enjoy the darkness.

Malawi belong to the citizens

That’s great news keep them there, wishing them great life there.

You clearly don’t understand how the law works. These people were caught with stolen goods and have a case to answer.

You dvmb f*#k thinks everyone gets bail. They will be lucky to get out before this case concludes. That’s what you get for stealing the country’s intelligence assets and compromising the whole country.

Its all about silencing dissenting voices. Why arrest people when you have not concluded investigations? Typical nyau mcp tactics.
