ZOMBA-(MaraviPost)-The Supreme Court of Appeal in Zomba  on Thursday granted bail to murder suspect Masozi Chanthunya.

Judge Dunstan Mwangulu made the ruling when the case resumed after a break of close to two months now.

In his ruling, Mwaungulu observed that Chanthunya who is accused of killing his girlfriend Linda Gasa, a student at Malawi College of Accountancy (MCA) has overstayed in jail hence granting him bail.

Mwaungulu therefore ordered Chanthunya to pay MK5 million bail bond in cash and surrender all travelling documents to the court.

The court has also asked for 10 sureties from Chanthunya, report to police every Friday and not leave the place he stays without authority approval.
