Mussa on bail

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The Lilongwe Principal Magistrate Court Lilongwe on Monday, September 21, 2020 granted bail to former Minister of Information Henry Mussa who is being accused of stealing computers from the ministry.

The same also freed on bail former Director of Information in the Ministry Gideon Munthali.

In his bail ruling, Principal resident Magistrate Viva Nyimba said the two should not continue being kept on remand considering that state prosecutors have concluded their investigations on the matter.

He then granted bail on condition that Mussa and Munthali present to the court two traceable securities each to pay MK250, 000.

The two are also required to surrender their travel documents to police, report to Central Region Police headquarters once in every two weeks and pay a bail bond of MK250, 000 each.

The two were arrested earlier this month on charges of theft by public servant and abuse of office.

They are suspected of stealing 10 computers and three generators which were donated to the Ministry of Information.
