Mr Banda spent ten days in police cells before he was taken to court.

During the course of his detention Banda fell ill and was admitted to Chipata Central Hospital.

On his first court appearance Banda was wheeled into court on a wheel chair and on the second appearance he came with a walking stick.

Banda was represented by John Phiri of JMP and Associates and Osbon Ngoma of Lungu Simwanza and Company
