MALAWI’S SUPREME COURT GAGS ACB: Stopped from arresting former cabinet minister Kezzie Msukwa

BIRDS OF SAME FEATHER: Chakwera confers with Msukwa

The Supreme Court of Appeal has stopped the Anti-corruption Bureau (ACB) from arresting former cabinet minister Kezzie Msukwa.

Justice Redson Kapindu granted the stay order to Msukwa on Monday.

The development comes after Msukwa was expected to be taken to court today after the bureau took a statement from him.

Chimwemwe Kalua, lawyer for Msukwa said the stay order is stopping ACB from investigating, arresting and prosecuting Msukwa based on the information for the National Agency Crime – pending an interparty hearing scheduled on 28 June ,2022.

He added that the stay order is also stopping a judgment by High Court Judge Redson Kapindu who dismissed an application by Msukwa and Ashok Nair, who wanted their arrests by the ACB to be annulled.
