Embattled former Agriculture Minister George Chaponda finally made bail, after being nabbed in connection with the ADMARC Zambia Maize scandal.

Thousands of people, who flocked to the Blantyre Magistrates Court, withstood the sweltering heat, as they spent a good part of Thursday both within and outside the court to follow developments pertaining to Chaponda’s arrest.

Chaponda was arrested on Wednesday, alongside Rashid Tayub of Trans globe Produce and Export Limited, who is also suspected to have been involved in the ADMARC maize scandal.

Chaponda faces charges of corruptly performing public functions, misuse of public office and possession of foreign currency.

On the other hand, Tayub is to answer a charge of influencing a public officer to misuse his office.

Bail conditions will require Chaponda and Tayub to report to the ACB every fortnight, and also report to the ACB whenever they are about to leave Blantyre.

Apart from that they are also supposed to pay MK200 in cash as well as non cash amounting to MK2 million.

The case will return to court on the 9th, 11th as well as the 14th of next month.

This came after Chaponda’s lawyers were denied suspension of the warrant of arrest which the ACB obtained last week.
