Malawi Supreme court denies Kumwembe, Pika Manondo bail in Mphwiyo’s shooting case

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-The Supreme Court of Appeal has denied bail first and second appellant in Paul Mphwiyo’s shooting case, MacDonald Kumwembe and Pika Manondo respectively.

Manondo and Kumwembe had asked the court to be released on bail pending appeal since there is no date set for hearing their appeal.

In 2016, Judge Michael Mtambo convicted Manondo and Kumwembe of attempting to murder Mphwiyo, with Ralph Kasambara being convicted of the charge of conspiring in the attempted murder.

Kasambara was sentenced to 13 years while Manondo and Kumwembe were sentenced to 15 years imprisonment with hard labour.

The three appealed against their conviction and applied for bail pending the conclusion of the appeal case in the Supreme Court of Appeal but Justice Dunstan Mwaungulu only released Kasambara on bail.

The development means the two will remain in prison.
