The Lilongwe Magistrate court yesterday adjourned hearing of a case involving the controversial prophet Chimwemwe Seer Sabao and a colleague on account of forgery, altering false documents and theft to Monday.
Another accomplice has been withdrawn from the case.
The state on Wednesday paraded four witnesses with one remaining due to time limitation.
Prophet Sabao and his accomplices Alinafe Katumba, and Nomsa Plen are answering charges bordering on forgery, altering false documents and theft of K 3,350,000.
Prophet Sabao denied the allegations that he has been forging signatures from cheques of his mother in law Gladys Masina who owns Glary Enterprise and General dealers.
State prosecutor and assistant superintended Isaac Kadawayula said Garnet Alinafe Katumba has been withdrawn as an accuser and is a state witness.
“We have seen that he has crucial evidence that will assist the state because of the role that he played in cashing the money from the bank. I had paraded five witnesses but the fact that other witnesses statements were not saved in time as such the other witness will come on Monday,” said Kadawayula.
Prophet Sabao is a founder of Angelic Gathering for Christ Church.
