Govt’s delay in bank robbery case angers defence lawyers

The defence team for the suspects of Mzuzu Standard Bank robbery have expressed dismay over government’s delay to conclude the case two years after the suspects were charged.

The lawyers, George Kazipatike and Christine N’gambi, have since applied for the dismissal of the case following lack of commitment by government in making progress on the case.

George Kazipatike says state is not committed to the case.

However, state prosecutor Jacob Nambili has disclosed that the delay was because they faced challenges in getting hold of the vehicle that was used during the robbery.

Nambili added that now the state has secured the evidence from the party who was at first reluctant to release the vehicle.

Charles Moffat who is a former Standard Bank employee, ex-police officer Ken Kamwambi, and Amos Jere were arrested in connection to the Mzuzu Bank robbery in 2014.

The robbers went away with money amounting to MK500 million but part of the money was recovered after Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) officials chased after the suspects until they abandoned their operation vehicle at Jenda in Mzimba district.
