The state has concluded its case against former president Peter Mutharika’s aide Norman Chisale who is answering charges of certificate faking and forgery.
On Monday, the State paraded its two witnesses making them 7 in total.
One of the witnesses the state paraded was Brigadier General Thomas Chaona who told the court that he is currently serving as Chief of Military Veterans Affairs at the Ministry of Defense.
Brigadier Chaona who was the recruitment officer during the 1996 Malawi Defense Force exercise also told the court that the initials that were used during the recruitment exercise differed from the real names of Norman Chisale.
Senior Resident Magistrate Shyreen Chirwa later set 5th May as the date the court will rule on whether Chisale has a case to answer or not.
Defense Lawyer Chancy Gondwe described the two witnesses the state paraded on Monday as ‘a waste of time.’
He said the witnesses had no evidence.
Meanwhile State Prosecutor Pirirani Masanjala has however said the court will determine if there is a case or not.
