Blantyre Magistrate Court has granted bail to Medical Aide Society of Malawi (MASM) commercial officer Andrew Ngomwa who is accused of raping his 16 year old niece.
Senior Resident Magistrate Angela Dosi who is presiding over the case, granted Ngomwa bail on Monday, October 19, 2020.
When delivering the ruling, Dosi ordered Ngomwa to pay K200, 000 in cash, furnish two reliable sureties bonded at K500, 000 non-cash.
Ngomwa is also expected to be reporting to Blantyre Police station every Fridays every fortnight.
The Magistrate also directed the Masm boss to surrender traveling documents to police.
During the bail hearing it transpired the case will be prosecuted by the lawyers from State Advocate.
The implication is it will take a little longer for case to resume and this prompted Dossi to expedite release the Ngomwa on bail.
Ngomwa handed himself over to Police in Blantyre on Monday, October 12, 2020 after a man haunt was launched over allegations of defilement.
Police said they received a complaint on September 21, 2020 over defilement of niece girl who is 16.
Blantyre Police spokesperson Augustus Nkhwazi said Ngomwa faces defilement charges.
