IN THE HIGH COURT OF MALAWI.
HOMICIDE CASE NO. 264 OF 2016
CORAM: HON. JUSTICE M.L. KAMWAMBE
Mr Maele, of Counsel for the Applicant
Mr Salamba, of Counsel for the State
Mr H. Amos, Official Interpreter
The Applicants and deceased were drinking beer together and deceased was going away too drank. Hours later deceased was found dead.
The court finds that there is no strong evidence against the Applicant apart from suspicion that they committed the offence as they were heard saying "awa mawa safika," meaning the deceased.
The Police still have a big task of building the case for successful prosecution. Meanwhile this Court orders the immediate release of the Applicants unconditionally.
Made in Chambers this 21st day of October, 2016 at Chichiri, Blantyre.
