Uladi Mussa files for bail pending appeal

Jailed former politician and cabinet minister  in three administrations, Uladi Mussa, has filed in the High Court for bail pending his appeal on corruption cases.

Uladi Basikolo Mussa was convicted for fraudulently aiding foreigners to access Malawi passports and citizenship.

Lawyer Paul Maulidi has confirmed that he has filed papers with the High Court to have the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) vice president released on bail.

Mussa was sentenced to five years imprisonment in October last year for abuse of public office and negligence of official duties after he was found guilty for issuing passports and citizenship to foreign nationals while serving as a cabinet Minister during the Joyce Banda administration.

He has since appealed against his conviction and the five year imprisonment sentence.

Maulidi said his client filed for bail pending the appeal and he is waiting for the High Court to set a date for the hearing of the application.

He said his client is also waiting for the high court to set a date for the hearing of the appeal case.

not possible. this prevelege is for tumbukas only like kasambala. the problem the whole mjudiciary is in the hands of tumbukas that is why you see kasambara while he is convicted criminal is able to move around freely and the case of Bushiri will take years to be concluded.

Full of odiots and igonorant people on this forum. When did Ada Kasambala become a Tumbuka? With this high level of igonorance in your mind, you can as well not differentiate a Yawo and a Lomwe. Anyhow regardless of which tribe sits at our court benchd Akuba nonse makaka a lomwe inu paja it is document in history records kuti ndinu zimbava – chaka chino mdzadza mndende

The lower court handed Mussa a very lenient sentence and i can see 10 yrs in the appeal.

I am still wanting to know what happened to all those passports and permits issued through corruption by Mr. Mussa.

Just double his sentence. That should be in order.

My free advice to you my brother is: If you succeed in your appeal or after finishing your jail term, please retire from politics. You have done your part. Your “chenji golo”
political slogan (or whatever we can call it) has outlived its relevance.
