LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Former Malawi President Peter Mutharika’s personal boardquard, Norman Paulosi Chisale is reportedly moved from Lilongwe to Zomba Mental Hospital where he is expected to be examined and monitored of any signs of mental illness
During his recent bail application which was thrown out by Justice Ivy Kamanga, Chisale had told the court he was mentally ill.
However, Judge Kamanga rebuffed Chisale asking him how he was able to sign court affidavits if he had mental issues.
Chisale, one of previous regimes most feared and powerful officials, has been charged with a heap of charges.
Chief among the charges he is facing is in relation to the gruesome killing of former ACB Director of Corporate Services Issa Njaunju as well as abuse of office where it is alleged he used his powers to cut a multi billion cement deal with Chunara of Milton Hardware where he allegedly used TPIN number of former president Mutharika to import millions of bags of cement duty free.
Chisale has also been charged with forgery and fraud where it is alleged he presented to Malawi Defence Force a fake certificate.
Sources within police have confided to The Maravi Post that newly appointed police chief Dr. George Kainja instructed a review of how Chisale purchased Area 3 police land where he has built an eight bedroom mansion.
If found that the land was grabbed, the sources say the police would be forced to take back their land, seize the property and turn it into a lodge or police guest house.
Chisala is answering several charges including murder, money laundering and fraud believed to have committed during Mutharika’s regime.
