The Lilongwe Chief Resident Magistrate Court is this afternoon continuing hearing of a case in which former Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera) CEO Collins Magalasi, is answering charges of fraud and abuse of office.

Magalasi whose co-accused are two former Mera officials and a businesswoman, Dorothy Shonga commonly known as ‘Cash Madam’, are appearing before the court for allegedly inducing the authority’s procurement committee to buy goods worth K107,032,231. 00 from a company that Magalasi apparently co-owns with Shonga.

Today the court is hearing evidence from a seventh witness, Mera’s Director of Finance Zakaria Ng’oma, who defense lawyer Andy Kaonga is cross-examining on procurement processes.

The court has already cross-examined six Mera officials including Consumer Affairs Manager Fitina Khonje.
