Hearing of a case involving former Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Collins Magalasi and three others has resumed this morning in Lilongwe before Chief Resident Magistrate Patrick Chirwa.
Magalasi alongside Mera`s spokesperson Patrick Maulidi, Procurement Officer Bright Mbewe and the CEO`s Business Associate Dorothy Shonga popularly known as Cash Madam were charged with 16 counts which include fraud, money laundering, making false statement and knowingly using falsified documents with intent to deceive.
However, Shonga has asked the court to give her three to four weeks to engage another lawyer arguing she does not want to be represented by her former counsel anymore.
But in his determination, Chief Resident Magistrate Chirwa has directed that the case should proceed arguing that the plea has no sufficient grounds in accordance with the notice of discharge of her former lawyer.
