All courts in Lilongwe have closed Friday as officials are disinfecting the premises for Covid-19.
This was after one suspect in the infamous cashgate involving former director of Budget Paul Mphwiyo tested positive for the virus.
Officials at the court said the courts will open on Tuesday next week.
The closure will affect some high profile cases including the suspects in the Buleya Lule murder who were supposed to appear before the court for a bail application ruling.
