MCP’s Kondi Msungama face theft charges: UTM’s Saonda an accomplice

Malawi Congress Party (MCP)  parliamentary candidate for Blantyre City Centre, Kondi Msungama, appeared before Lunzu Magistrate’s Court to face  charges of impersonating an Immigration officer with alleged intent to swindle a Blantyre-based Burundian businessperson, Emmanuel Gatera Alphonse, of K6 350 000.

Msungama: Facing theft charges
Saonda: Saonda is named as the one who introduced Msungama to the Burundian

The court records state that the money was allegedly part of an agreement Msungama—a businessperson-cum-politician—would facilitate processing of citizenships for Alphonse and eight members of his family.

Msungama’s accomplice is UTM parliamentary candidate for Blantyre Bangwe, George Saonda.

Saoda of ‘Sesa-sesa’ oratory fame is named as the one who introduced Msungama to the Burundian and his family,  according to the courd records

A third accused person is Daniel Masina Chikhaula of Njonja Village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Kachere in Dedza,.

The trio denied the charges, which are theft by false pretence and impersonating a public officer.

The matter is being prosecuted by regional prosecutions officer at Southern Region Police, Dickens Mwambazi.

Lawyer Luciano Mickeus is  representing Msungama and  attorney  representing Saonda and Chikhaula is Dalitso Mataka sought an adjournment on the grounds that they were not ready and needed more time to prepare their defence.

Second grade Patrick Mwamele adjourned the case to April 26 this year for trial, with the accused persons to continue remaining on court bail.

i dont see the truth in this story, if this was true you would see the mutharika broadcasting corporation taking it to some level because thats what they are bussy searching for, at the moment.and there is no way UTM and MCP can break a deal together.

This is definately Tit for Tat where were you all this while? Why are you targeting member of opposition at this hour? When the Elections are around the corner?Something is not adding up here, everybody knows that DPP government is corrupt to the borne. Let the opposition do their campagne freely, without intimidation or fear, and bring them to book after the elections is over. If your motive is good.
