High Court Granted Bail To Tadikira

The High Court in Mzuzu has granted bail to Tadikila Mafubza, son to former first lady Getrude Mutharika who is accused of murder and aggravated human trafficking.

Making the bail ruling Judge Gladys Gondwe ordered Mafubza to pay K2million cash bond, provide two blood related sureties each bonded at K5million non-cash and that he should surrender his passport and all travel documents to police.

Mafubza has also been ordered not to interfere with investigations or contact any witnesses related to the case and report to National police headquarters every Tuesday of a fortnight.

Judge Gondwe said much as a murder case usually attracts a life sentence, any accused person has a right to bail.

She said, the court also found that the submissions provided by the state did not demonstrate the need to continue detaining the suspect.

One of the lawyers for Mafubza, Wapona Kita said after all processes at the high court, his client will be taken out of Maula prison.
