Malawi: Court Adjourns Itaye Abuse of Office At Macra Case to May 13

The Magistrate's Court in Blantyre has adjourned to May 13, 2021 hearing a case where former director general at Malawi Communication Regulatory Authority (MACRA) Godffrey Itaye and two others are accused of using public money to buy pieces of clothes for the now opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

They are answering charges of fraud and abuse of office.

The adjournment follows a request by state to regularize documents after defense objected to one of the documents by state to be part of evidence on grounds that it was a photocopy.

The document indicated that MACRA printed 200 meters of cloth for the DPP valued at K2, 249, 615 at Mapeto David Whitehead.
