By Luyando Hamwala-The Lusaka Magistrate Court has granted National Democratic Congress -NDC- Leader Chishimba Kambwili 300,000 Kwacha cash bail pending appeal.

Mr. Kambwili who is currently in detention after he was sentenced to one-year imprisonment with hard labour for forgery and uttering a false document appealed against the sentence in the Lusaka high court.

When the matter came up for bail application hearing, the convict’s lawyer Musa Mwenye asked the court to grant him bail as the appeal procedures and requirements have been met.

However, the state objected stating that the convict has not clearly shown under what circumstances the bail pending appeal should be granted.

In delivering his ruling Magistrate David Simusamba granted Mr. Kambwili bail on condition that he pays 100,000 Kwacha cash and provide two working sureties from reputable institutions who will also pay a total of 100,000 Kwacha cash each.

Magistrate Simusamba said the set conditions are due to the convict’s conduct which he exhibited during trial.

He said the conditions have to be stiffened now that Mr. Kambwili is a convict.
