Henry Mussa’s case adjourned to December 4

Date:

The Lilongwe Magistrate Court has adjourned to 4 December, hearing of the case in which Henry Mussa and Gideon Munthali were expected to take plea.

The two are being accused of stealing 10 computers and 3 generators meant for distribution in district information offices across the country.

Appearing in court today for plea, state prosecutor Cecelia Zangazanga told the court that the state is not ready with the case files which are still at the officer of the Director of Public Prosecution where they are seeking legal opinion.

The development forced the presiding magistrate to adjourn the case to December 4, 2020.

But before adjourning, Principal Resident Magistrate Viva Nyimba asked the state to act with speed stating that the accused have the right to a speedy trial, sentiments defence lawyer Powell Nkhutabasa agrees with.

The court granted them bail on 21 September, 2020 after surrendering all their travel documents.
