LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The Lilongwe,Chief Resident Magistrate Court on Thursday, May 19, 2022 reserved its ruling on bail application by former Tobacco Commission (TC) Chief Executive Officer Kayisi Sadala.

The bail application followed arrest of Sadala on Tuesday, May 17 2022 on allegation that he had a hand in illegal sale of institutional houses.

In court, the state asked the court to remand the accused for further 14 days as police are yet to complete the investigations on the matter.

But defense lawyer Khwima Mchizi objected the application arguing when the police arrested the suspect meant they had conducted thorough investigations.

In 2020, the TC cancelled the sale of the house on Plot Number CG88 (Title Number Chigumula 22) and another on plot Number 10/470 (Title Number Alimaunde 10/292) on allegations that the houses were sold at a price below valuation and at an amount lower than that of other bidders and Settlement Proposal on Disposal of Plot and TC reported the matter to police for investigations.

A report by the Office of the Ombudsman released in May 2020 faulted TC over the sale of the two institutional houses, saying the properties were sold against a ban on sale of institutional houses
