Malawi corruption-busting body summons lawyer Lusungu Gondwe

The state-run corruption-busting body, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), has summoned another lawyer who worked on obtaining bail ‘political prisoner’   former Attorney-General Ralph Kasambara to quiz him his role on how they obtained bail while courts are on strike.

ACB has already interrogated two lawyers from Kasambara’s law firm, Ralph and Arnolds, Wapona Kita and Jonathan Kara on the matter.

Kara appeared last Friday while Kita who invoked his right to remain silent, appeared on Monday.

Gondwe confirmed being summoned and said he will appear before the bureau on Tuesday in Blantyre.

Nampota: Summons Lusungu Gondwe

ACB boss Alex Nampota said Gondwe would be quizzed on how the bail process was conducted.

Nampota claims the bail was issued corruptly.

Kasambara, an outspoken opponent of Malawian President Bingu wa Mutharika, who once served as his Attorney-General, says the administration sent thugs to petrol bomb his law office while he ended up in jail.

He was arrested last Monday, accused of kidnapping and torturing three men he claimed had confessed to his bodyguards that they had been sent after him by the government.

However, Information Minister Patricia Kaliati denies Kasambara’s accusations while Kasambara denies the kidnapping and torture charges.
