The Blantyre Magistrate’s court has adjourned the hearing of a case involving former Agriculture Minister, George Chaponda, to the 14th of September.

Chaponda is suspected to have been involved in the ADMARC maize scandal, in which procurement procedures were flouted in the purchase of maize from Zambia.

He is accused along with two others, Rashid Tayub, who is the Director of Transglobe Export Produce Limited and Grace Mijiga Mhango, the President of the Grain Traders Association of Malawi.

The ACB requested today, that the three cases be consolidated, and that the trial be held in Lilongwe.

Speaking to Capital FM, Reyneck Matemba who is Deputy Director of the Anti Corruption Bureau said that, they thoroughly prepared for case.

“If you recall, the last time we were here for a hearing, we indicated before the court that we would be making an application to consolidate the case.

We also indicated that we would have transferred the case to the capital city Lilongwe because that is where the offence took place”.

However, Matemba points out that the strike by the judiciary support staff delayed them from making a consolidation.

He also revealed that the ACB was not notified that the hearing would begin on Tuesday, the date is said to have been set in their absence without proper consultation.

Chaponda’s lawyer Jai Banda said they were ready for trial whether they are served with disclosure or not.

“However before the prosecution is served with a consolidation we want disclosures which will give an outline of evidence.

We are happy that the court has put a date for the consolidation,” Matemba explained.

In his view, Banda believes that there is no need for the case to be moved to Lilongwe, Blantyre is just fine.
