Supreme Court dismisses Uladi’s application


Supreme Court of Appeal has dismissed former Minister of Homeland Security Uladi Mussa’s application for bail pending hearing and determination of his appeal in the abuse of office case.

Mussa was in 2020 sentenced to five years imprisonment alongside former regional immigration officer David Kwanjana and businessperson Peter Katasya.

After being not satisfied with the sentence, Mussa applied for bail pending his bail application on the matter.

In his application, Mussa through lawyer Chancy Gondwe cited the possibility of his appeal succeeding and delays in processing the appeal due to lack of a court quoram, as factors to justify his application.

Delivering the ruling on the matter, Justice of Appeal Lovemore Chikopa noted that the application did not show what interest of justice would be served if he was granted bail pending appeal.

He said the court looked into Mussa’s file and found that it was clear that he needs to do some more work before the appeal is ready for hearing.

The development means Mussa will remain in prison serving is 5 years jail sentence.
