City socialite Dorothy Shonga alias Cash Madam has finally regained her freedom after reportedly being granted bail from prison.
Accordingly, Violate Chipao, the Lilongwe Chief Resident Magistrate, Dorothy Shonga and her co-accused persons including the Mera CEO Collins Magalasi have been granted a cash bail of K500,000 surety and K5,000,000 non cash surety following the failure of the state to present enough evidence before court against them.
Chipao has ordered the accused to surrender over their travel documents and warned them against influencing witnesses as the state gathers enough evidence to incriminate the trio.
The latter are charged with fraud, money laundering and entering into a procurement with an employee. Section 42 of Malawi's Financial Crimes Act passed in 2017 sets a maximum sentence of life imprisonment for a person who is found guilty of money laundering.
