The Chief Resident Magistrate’s Court in Lilongwe has adjourned to 12 and 14 April 2021 a case in which former Minister of Information Henry Mussa and former Director of Information Gideon Munthali are being accused of stealing computers and generators.
Today, the State paraded two witnesses Dr Esmie Kainja, who was Principal Secretary (PS) for Ministry of Information and Deputy Director of Administration for the Ministry’s Corporate Office Samuel Nankhuni.
In an interview, Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Dr Steven Kayuni said the State has six witnesses to be paraded in the case after parading two witnesses on Monday.
“The two witnesses have testified, and we have in total six, and we are coming back in Court where we will parade the four witnesses,” said Dr Kayuni.
Dr Kayuni added that he is satisfied with the testimony the two have so far given in Court.
“So far so good the case is on track, and the State is happy with the progress,” he said.
Powell Nkhutabasa is one of the lawyers representing Mussa.
“The State brought two witnesses, they testified, we cross examined them and the matter has been adjourned to 12 and 14 April this year for continued hearing,” said Nkhutabasa.
The two were arrested last year and later released on a court bail.
