Lawyer, Chancy Gondwe has asked Lilongwe Magistrate Court to dismiss the current proceedings saying the application by state to commit the case to High Court is misleading.
But the state has dismissed Gondwe’s arguments saying Reyneck Matemba’s contract was on month to month bases and it expired on January 31 and not December 31 as put by Gondwe.
The State further says the defendants team did not do enough research and has wasted Court’s time by telling it that ACB has no acting Director General saying ACB has acting DG.
Further, the state insists the matter was referred procedurally.
Meanwhile, the State has prayed that objections by defendants be dismissed as they are a time waster to the court.
It insists the accused persons should be committed to the High Court but Shyreen Chirwa has adjourned the matter for a minute to get Magistrate Viva Nyimba’s ruling and match it with the arguments being raised.
