The case goes back to court in Hong Kong on Monday, December 3 and the government has sent the delegation to ensure that Enestina Mukasera has legal representation.

Parliament committee on International Relations chairman Alex Meja said ministry of Foreign Affairs officials have confirmed that they have told the Malawi ambassador to Hong Kong or his representative to be present during the case.

“We have been assured that she will have a legal representation. The Republic of China in Hong Kong will provide the legal representation. In addition, a representative of the Malawi government will be there too,” said Meja.

The Malawi ambassador to Hong Kong resides in China as Hong Kong is regarded as a province of China.

Meja said his committee has had a series of meetings with officials from the Chinese embassy who assured that Mukasera will have a fair trial, saying an interpreter has already been identified.

Chairman of the Human Rights Defenders Coalition Robert Mkwezalamba said human rights activists were following the case very closely.

“We want the court to follow an international law,” said Mkwezalamba.

Mukasera was arrested on August 10 after she was allegedly found with cocaine.

“a 29-year-old Malawian woman in Hong Kong who faces death sentence if convicted.”

Hong Kong does NOT have the death penalty. It is mainland China which has it. This is revealed in a simple google search, which Owen Khamula has failed to carry out.

Why is an interpreter needed? To translate what to what? English is an official language, as well as “Chinese”, so if proceedings are carried out in the former language does she still need an interpreter?

It Seems the presideent is not a Malawian who can feel for Its citizens. Mbuzi yopanda mano mkamwa. We may know our sister might have done wrong, but who has never done wrong under the sun? That is Why We need to take a stand to give her a second chance. Malawians are known for hatred for each other. Let us stop this, it will not Help develope our nation.
