No bail yet for Mwiza Chavura

Musician Mwiza Chavura is yet to be released on bail following his arrest on Friday.

The artist was arrested for releasing a song that promotes rape and was charged with producing obscene materials, which is contrary to Section 179 (1) (a) of the Penal Code.

Mwiza Chavura still in custody

His application for bail was brought before a magistrates’ court in Lilongwe on Tuesday and the court said it will deliver its ruling on Thursday.

During the hearing, a police prosecutor said investigations of the case could take 10 days since they would involve getting a consent from the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The police prosecutor Cecilia Zangazanga added that investigators would need to get hold of the equipment used to produce the Ndizakupanga Rape song hence Chavura would derail investigations if released on bail.

But one of Chavura’s four lawyers Nicely Msowoya argued that the artist faces a fine if found guilty so keeping him in custody is not justified.

He also suggested that the state did not show that investigations would not be possible when Chavura is released.

“So, in the event that there is a possibility that the release of the accused person will not prejudice investigations, the law says there should not be any reason to keep the accused person in custody,” Msowoya said.

Chavura’s song caused controversy and was condemned by various quarters after it was uploaded on a music sharing site. The censorship board in Malawi has since banned the song.

MALAWIANS SPEND MONEY BUYING NIGERIAN FILMS JUST TO WATCH CRIMES AND STUFF..IT DOESNT MEAN THE FILM IS ENCOURAGING CRIME..RAMBO.1 AND 2 FILMS DIDNT ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO TAKE ARMS AND FIGHT THE ARMY. WARNING AND RATING OF SUCH ARTIST MATERIAL IS ALL WE NEED..NOBODY WOULD WANT TO GO AND LISTEN TO A SONG THAT TALKS ABOUT RAPING WOMEN BECAUSE THAT WVIL AMD SICK..HOWEVER THE ARTIST AHOULD BE FREE TO WRITE A FILM OR BOOK OR SONG ABOUT RAPE..WE SHOULD BE FREE TO CHOOSE TO WATCH IT OR LISTEN TO OT THATS DEMOCRACY.

  5. Malawi what is all this instead of making good planning on how to run the government you are so busy with “Chavula”who is Chavula after all???This government must think twice why still keeping him and what crime did he committed is he the only artist who’s having songs like that??? WAKE UP MALAWI WE ARE NOT HAPPY ABOUT YOUR ABUSIVE TREATMENT YOU ARE PUTTING ON HIM….

    • Neglecting and being reluctant to handle serious cases and crimes committed by these foolish politicians,irrational leaders to dwell much attention on trivial issue of chavura…we have bigger issues in the country that demands such attention….

    • Why not taking xrius cases of those who steal taxi payers money instead concetrating on issues whch can not help Malawians at all.Paja who steals chicken suffers more than those who steal billions thats #Malawi
