On 20th October 2023, the High Court in Lilongwe heard an application by the State to revoke bail for Paul Mphwiyo who has absconded bail since June 2023. The State informed the Court that Mr. Mphwiyo had not reported for his bail as per the bail conditions. The Court has therefore made a ruling revoking Mr. Paul Mphwiyo’ s bail and that he should be arrested whenever and wherever he will be found. The Court has also ordered that Mr. Mphwiyo’ s bail bond of MK10,000,000.00 and that of his four sureties who were each bonded at K2,000,000.00 be forfeited to the Malawi Government.
Mr. Paul Mphwiyo is answering corruption charges in Court related to cash gate scandal and was found with a case to answer. The case awaits judgment.
