Former Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Raphael Kasambara, was taken to Seventh Day Adventist Hospital Friday.
Malawi Prison Services public relations officer, Evance Phiri, confirmed the development. He, however, could not go into specifics about Kasambara’s condition.
“He requested to see his doctors after he complained that he was not feeling well. He just went for check up and we are just waiting for feedback from the hospital,” Phiri said.
Kasambara, who was found with a case to answer on conspiracy to murder former budget director Paul Mphwiyo, was committed to jail on Wednesday after High Court Judge Michael Mtambo revoked the former minister of justice’s bail for breaching bail conditions.
Before he was sent to jail, Kasambara requested the High Court in Lilongwe to effect bail revocation from Friday to allow him attend personal issues. However, Mtambo dismissed Kasambara’s request.
Kasambara is answering the case alongside MacDonald Kumwembe and Pika Manondo who are facing charges of conspiracy and attempting to murder Mphwiyo.
