It was a happy time to the Mzomera Ngwira family on Monday as the Mzuzu High Court Judge Justice Chimwemwe Kamowa announcing the release of Former Democratic Progressive Party Regional Governor for the North Rev. Christopher Mzomera Ngwira who was serving a four-year term at Mzimba Prison.
Kamowa made the ruling after Ngwira appealed his conviction and sentence.
Ngwira was convicted over the abuse of money meant for Local Development Fund (LDF) during the time he was member of Parliament for Mzimba Hora Constituency.
A statement by Justice Kamoto says the court agreed with the conviction but disagreed with the sentence and immediately released Ngwira.
One of the DPP NGC member Joe Nyirongo confirmed the release of Ngwira.
“That’s true he is out and we are happy as a party to welcome him, as he is still a senior member of the party,” he said.
