The move was part of the court’s proceedings in the matter where it is alleged that Mlogera accommodated three teenage girls and thereafter took turns to defile them on the night of October 8, 2016.

The three victims narrated to the court at the scene how the suspect, who was present, drove his vehicle to the lodge in company of the girls and the actual place where he packed his car.

Mzuzu Police Station spokesperson Martin Tul Bwanali says that the defense counsel has registered four witnesses and since these witnesses were not readily available in court.
