Aitel Malawi is expected to appear in court to clarify on call logs presented in High Court on Tuesday in a case involving minister of Justice Ralph Kasambara and others who are accused of the attempted assassination of former budget director Paul Mphwiyo.
The development comes following the remarks made by lawyer for Paul Mphwiyo, Wapona Kita who has accused the leading prosecutor in the case of doctoring the call logs.
Lead investigator Superintendent Kankhwala Chilimba presented the call logs on Tuesday before Justice Michael Chirambo.
Kita told the investigator that the call logs had been doctored when Chilinda resumed the witness stand for cross-examination.
”I put it to you that the call logs have been doctored,” said Kita to the lead investigator.
“How come Mc Donald Kumwembe made a call on alleged Pika Manondo’s call logs?” said Kita.
However, Chilinda told the court that he only presented to court what was given to him by service providers through an order from the court.
Chibwana told the court that the service provider, Airtel, would be competent to clarify the lawyer’s questions.
Chibwana said “ Airtel officials will clarify.”
Chilinda; who has put across damning evidence linking several of the accused persons in the shooting of Mphwiyo at the gate of his Area 43 residence on September 13 2013 – submitted call logs of the accused—Kasambara, Pika Manondo, MacDonald Kumwembe and Dauka Manondo—which indicated they were in contact on the day of the shooting and two days later.
Meanwhile the case is proceeding today at Lilongwe High Court and is expected to run for three days.
