Witnesses from South Africa are expected to appear in a Malawian court to sign under oath aswell as to be questioned by the defence team.
This was accordung to a ruling that was made by a Malawian Magistrate Patrick Chirwa yesterday.
Chirwa ruled among other things that the state did not follow the law by relying on affidavits sent from South Africa.
He stated that the state should have interviewed the witnesses themselves and assessed the evidence aswell.
Chirwa subsequently gave the state two weeks to file it’s application. This is a serious twist in Shepherd Bushiri’s extradition case.
