The High Court in Lilongwe has suspended sentencing of Principal Secretary for Agriculture, Grey Nyandule Phiri and Secretary to Treasury Cliff Chiunda, to August 19, 2019.

Lawyer representing the two, Chancy Gondwe, said they made an application in the court today for it to hear the sides of the two PSs before delivering the sentence.

The two were last week found guilty of contempt of court for disrespecting a court order in connection to the procurement and disposal of farm equipment bought using $50 million (about K37 billion) of borrowed funds.
