The High Court in Lilongwe on Tuesday granted bail to United Democratic Front (UDF) Publicity Secretary, Ken Ndanga and 11 others, who are suspected to have been involved in the torching of UTM offices in Lilongwe, killing three people in the process.
Ndanga’s lawyer Innocent Kubwalo confirmed that his client and the others have been granted bail by Judge Ivy Kamanga.
The Court made the bail ruling on Tuesday.
According to Kubwalo, the suspects are, however, yet to be released as they will have to file sworn statements regarding what they do, where they will be staying when released on bail and other issues about their lives.
“The sworn statements will have to be made three days from the day the ruling was made. After assessing the sworn statements, the Court will give the bail conditions on September 4 2020,” Kubwalo said
Ndanga, Hassani and others are accused of petrol bombing a UTM office in Area 24 in Lilongwe which housed Seleman Tambala’s family and led to the death of Alice, Shukulani and Adyusa Tambala.
The arson also left three children seriously injured.
Last month, Police also arrested Mussa Dayton, 34, from Chitalo Village, Traditional Authority Kalembo in Balaka District in connection with the incident.
The case was also committed to the High Court.
Police also impounded four vehicles suspected to have been used during the attack.
