The High court in Lilongwe has found Secretary to Treasury Cliff Chiunda and Principal Secretary for Agriculture Grey Nyandule Phiri 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) borrowed funds.

Judge Charles Mkandawire has since set Monday August 5, 2019 as the day for sentencing.

Meanwhile Ombudsman Martha Chazuma says she is satisfied with the ruling as the two did not comply with the Supreme Court Order which urged them to apologise in 21 days.
