The High Court in Lilongwe has found guilty former Malawi attorney general and justice minister Ralph Kasambara guilty of conspiring to murder the country’s former budget director Paul Mphwiyo.
In a televised ruling, Judge Micheal Mtambo started by giving a background to the case and recollecting all the arguments that were presented before him.
In his ruling, the judge indicated that on the charge of attempted murder, he had found the two accused Pika Manondo and Macdonald Kumwembe guilty of the charge. In the second charge of conspiring to commit murder, the judge also found the two plus the former minister guilty.
Kasambara, a faithful servant of South Africa based self-acclaimed Prophet Shepherd Bushiri was once labelled by former President late Bingu wa Mutharika as a mafia.
Date for sentencing of the convict will be announced.
