Murder accused herbalist fails to secure bailBy Elias Banda on 11 Mar 2017
LUSAKA High Court judge Pixie Yangailo has thrown out an appeal of bail application by traditional healer Chilufya Chileya commonly known as Kalonga Kanono.
Kanono is in this matter charged with attempted murder of his sister Josephine whom he shot with a pistol.
Judge Yangailo in her ruling agreed with the subordinate’s refusal to grant bail on the premise that Kanono was likely to interfere with witnesses if granted bail.
The state through state senior state advocate Mercy Pondamali Lungu also opposed the bail application based on the findings that Kanono was likely to interfere with witnesses particularly the victim Josephine.
Judge Yangailo said it was not in the interest of proper justice that persons accused of crimes were seen or heard to be tampering with witnesses.
“Accordingly, the applicant is denied bail and the application is dismissed,” she ruled.
Last month, Lusaka magistrate Albert Mwaba denied Kanono bail on the same grounds.
State prosecutor Christopher Nyambe said if granted bail, Kanono would most likely interfere with the victim who is the key witness in the matter.
He also said Kanono had threatened to kill the victim once he was released from the remand prison.Related Items
