The Lilongwe Chief Resident Magistrate Madalitso Khoswe Chimwaza has allowed well-known businessperson Dorothy Shonga, popularly known Cash Madam to travel to South Africa.
The development follows an application made by Shonga to have her passport released temporarily since it has been in court’s custody following her arrest a year ago.
Shonga is currently answering money laundering cases alongside former Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera) boss Collins Magalasi.
The court has however denied an application by Shonga to extend her travel to Dubai for business meeting after agreeing with the State that the middle east country has no extradition agreement with Malawi.
Shonga has since been ordered to hand back the passport by Thursday next week.
