Bushiri’s Evidence Documents Not Duly Authenticated-Court

By Lovemore Khomo, LILONGWE

Chief Resident Magistrate Madalitso Chimwaza has agreed with the defence in the extradition case involving Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and wife Mary that the documents that South African authorities want to use as evidence were not duly authenticated.

He says because of such, the documents may not be admissible in court.

Earlier, defence lawyer, Wapona Kita had applied for the complete dismissal of extradition request based on these legal flaws but the court has not ruled in their favour.

Chimwaza says it is premature to dismiss the request now as no document has been tendered yet on court as evidence.

Hearing of the case has since been adjourned to October 10 this year when the state is expected to parade its witness from South African witness, Sibongire Mnzinyathi, who is the Director of Public Prosecutions for Gauteng Province.
