DPP tells ACB not to engage SC Mordecai Msiska in Chilima’s corruption case

Date:

The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has been asked to reconsider its decision to engage lawyer Mordecai Msiska in corruption case involving vice president Saulos Chilima.

After Chilima was arrested last week, reports had it that the graft-bursting agency will engage Msiska to prosecute the case against Chilima.

However, the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Dr. Moses Kayuni confirmed advised the bureau against engaging Msiska in the case but did not give much details on the development.

Kayuni added that he made the communication to ACB in confidence on the reasons not to engage Msiska in the prosecuting the case involving the vice president.

He stressed that he cannot discuss any of the reasons with the media.

“The reasons have been confidentially communicated to the ACB I have so much respect for Msiska, as such I cannot discuss this in the media,” said Kayuni in an interview with Nation Publications Newspaper.

However, sources say that this might be because the Senior Council is already representing ACB director general in another corruption case involving corruption suspect, businessman Ashok Nair.

Some legal experts pointed out that ACB is allowed to point any legal practitioner to present them in any legal matter.

Chizuma; yet to comment

ACB is yet to comment on the matter.

Chilima was arrested last week for allegedly receiving an advantage in form of funds amounting to USD280, 000 to influence awarding of contracts by government to companies of corruption suspect UK based businessman Zuneth Sattar.

Meanwhile Chilima is on bail.
