He was, however, granted bail after his lawyer Mwila Chibiliti made an application that the accused be granted bail because the matter he was charged with was bailable.
“The accused has been in custody for seven days having been denied bond. Therefore, we apply that the accused be granted bail as the matter he is charged with is bailable. He is a first-time offender and has established employment at a senior level in a government bank with fixed aboard. He is a family man and will avail himself as and when required by the Court,” Chibiliti said.

“Bail is granted in the sum of K10,000 in his own recognizance and will provide two working sureties to be bound in the like sum in their own recognizance and must be Lusaka residents from reputable organizations,” ruled Magistrate Mwaba.
The court adjourned the matter to July 4 for commencement of trial.
