Mzuzu Standard Bank K500m heist Ken Kamwambi’s father made news when he kept on intimidating journalists who were taking pictures of his son.
He kept on pushing and intimidating the journalists at Mzuzu magistrates court in full view of a contingent of armed police officers.
At one point, he nearly broke the camera of the state controlled Malawi Broadcasting Corporation.
Kamwambi is accused of stealing the money together with Charles Moffat, a memer of staff at the bank who was in charge of ATMs and other assets in Mzuzu and Amos Jere, a guard who was in charge of the gate where Kamwami, a sergent with the Police Mobile Force (PMF) in Blantyre came through and went undeterred.
The magistrate Cathy Phiri adjourned the case on Tuesday to December 11 after the court viewed a CCTV footage.
After viewing the footage that was mounted in the bank and recorded the details of the robbery, the defense team asked for the adjournment.
The defense counsel complained to the court that it was contrary to the laws for the state to take Kamwambi as a hard core criminal.
The court then ruled that when in court, the police should not handcuff him but all bail conditions on his other alleged crimes should apply soon after he is out of the court room.
Kamwambi is implicated in other armed robberies in Blantyre and Lilongwe.
