Mussa’s lawyer Paul Maulidi said this after High Court Judge Chifundo Kachale finished the reading the ruling.
According to Maulidi, his team will appeal from next week.
On Thursday afternoon Judge Chifundo Kachale imposed a 5 year custodial sentence on Mussa for the offence of abuse of office while for the offence of neglect of duty Mussa has been handed a 1 year custodial sentence.
The sentences are however to run concurrently which means Mussa will spend 5 years behind the bars.
