Probe on Lawyers Not Political, Says ACB

Malawi’s Anti Corruption Bureau has said investigations into how lawyers for Mr. Ralph Kasambara obtained court bail is not political, the bureau’s director Mr. Alexius Nampota has said.

Mr. Nampota told a news conference ion Blantyre on Friday that for some time the graft busting body has been closely monitoring the suspected corrupt relationship between Mr. Kasambara and Magistrates as well as Judges.

“This time we wonder how his lawyers had to go to a magistrate to get a bail bond when in the normal procedure a magistrate does not have a jurisdiction to determine bail issues outside a normal court session,” said Mr. Nampota

“With the court workers on strike the bureau wants to ascertain the criteria that the lawyers used to obtain a court bail when there are many people who are detained by the police failing to do so,” he said further.

He said even if it were not for the recent developments ACB would still have launched investigations on Mr. Kasambara because of his past conduct.

He told the media that Mr. Kasambara is alleged to have been corrupting judicial officers thereby raising questions on how he managed to obtain a court bail when the courts are closed.

The bureau has since summoned lawyers Wapona Kita and Jonathan Kara to appear before the bureau.—Zodiak Online

Alex keep eating that director salary until Bingu is driven out by the system. Question what are you talkng about magistrate does not have jurisdiction -please repeat. Now what about the high court granting injuction and also minister of Justice says strike is no legal as such since we are a nation of laws why should Wapona abide by an illegal strike. Alex keep hammering that cushy salary at Bingu's expense he thinks pride can make up for his lack of intelligence and wisdom. Keep hoodwinking him- he is fast asleep.

Quoting Kwacha:
Is that the reason to arrest somebody mpakana Zomba Maximum Prison? Mpakana being escorted around by 30 police men munthu woti alibe ndi ndodo yomwe yomenyera. Mugwanayo imeneyi aboma. Bingu ndi mfiti yotha ntchito. Mulungu achite nay kanthu ndithu.


IT IS SURPRISING WHY POLICE WHO GOT ARREST WARANT ARE NOT BEING PROBED ON HOW SUCH PRACTICE WAS SUCCEEDED.
