Senior Resident Magistrate Shyreen Yona Chirwa, has committed to the High Court the land case involving former cabinet minister Charles Mchacha, former Secretary to the President and Cabinet Lloyd Muhara, former Minister of Lands Symon Vuwa Kaunda and Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Defence Bright Kumwembe.
Chirwa has, however, turned down an application by the state to have the accused’s bail conditions restored after they were suspended by Principal Resident Magistrate Viva Nyimba last month.
The four are being suspected to have played different roles in the alleged illegal land inquisition by Mchacha. The land, at Kanjedza in Blantyre, belonged to the Department of Forestry.
