  1. Uwu nde usilu, wokuba 46 pin six yrs in prison,opezeka ndi mlandu wa chamba masiku ochepa basi opezeka akukwatilana asame sex no mlandu opezeka ndi milandu ya cashgate oti anaba ma million osamangidwa zachamba basi aphawife nde muzitionelera

  3. Sometimes its better not to comment on matters you dnt know especially law matters.As for me I dont see any problem with this sentence (6 yrs) bcoz atleast I know little about our laws. Breaking offences are serious offences and they invite stiff punishments.In breaking offences it matters less whether what you stole cost Millions of kwachas or hundred kwacha and for your information the charge which this man was answering carries a maximum penalty of 10 yrs and who knows maybe the man was not a first offender hence given that sentence.As for the cashgate issue you are refering to,alot of cashgate suspects were charged with theft and theft itself carries a maximum sentence of 5 yrs so u can see the difference there.
