The Former president Peter Mutharika’s security aide, Norman Chisale, is still in custody at Chichiri Prison despite being granted bail by High Court Judge Sylvester Kalembera earlier today.
According to Chisale’s lawyer, Chancy Gondwe, the accused was not released because they delayed to serve the police and Chichiri Prison documents of the bail.
Gondwe said they only managed to serve on the state advocate and delayed to serve on the other parties such as Southern Region Police Headquarters and Chichiri Prison Service.
Chisale was arrested for the case of attempted murder following an incident in Blantyre where he shot a woman in May this year.
Following Chisale’s arrest, the woman said she never intended to lay charges against Chisale and she also revealed that Chisale has been helping her since the incident.
Chisale is also answering two separate counts of fraud and money laundering which relate to the importation of freed duty cement worth K5 billion.
