Former Malawi Regulatory Authority (Mera) CEO, Collins Magalasi, is today appearing before the Magistrate’s court in Lilongwe to answer two counts of abuse of office and fraud.
Magalasi is acussed of abusing authority of his office. He allegedly paid K10.5 million as accommodation for former ruling DPP officials at Kanjedza Lodge, Oasis Hotel and Heritage Serendib between July and August 2018.
When the court resumed sitting, Magalasi’s lawyer, Andrew Kaonga, requested for an adjournment saying he suspects that he is Covid-19 positive and needed to go for testing.
But senior Magistrate Shyreen Chirwa, has denied the request saying she is not satisfied with how the plea has been made. Magalasi is now expected to enter plea.
