Norman Chisale’s call logs in court

The State Wednesday said it will bring to court call logs for former presidential security aide Norman Chisale and one of its witnesses Moses Banda in the former’s attempted murder case.

State lawyer Pirirani Masanjala said the logs would prove their case that Chisale has been interfering with the witness.

“We have the call logs and have submitted them to the court and the defence so that they have a chance to look at them before we meet. We are saying Mr Chisale has been talking to our witness and has to go back to prison until the case is finalised. The defence disagrees but the logs will show,” he said.

Defence Lawyer Chancy Gondwe said he was okay with the arrangement, saying the State has to prove that Chisale has been in contact with Banda.

On the main application, which is that the court should revoke Chisale’s bail, Gondwe said the application did not hold.

“This is an embarrassing application which the State is bringing just to confuse the court. They cannot be bringing that application after parading five witnesses in court,” he said.

Chisale is being accused of attempting to kill Blantyre-based woman Sigere Amani.

Lack of communication between the State and witness Banda continued yesterday, when Banda arrived at the court despite not being in the State’s plans for the day.

Chisale fumed at seeing Banda, saying all the State wanted was to persecute him.

“They should just kill me. I am tired of this. Yesterday Moses Banda came but they said he wasn’t around. Today Banda was here but he was not called by the State! What do they want?” he said.

Justice Sylvester Kalembera has adjourned the case to Friday this week.
