Mail and Telegraph reports that former Cabinet minister, Walter Mzembi is battling cancer of the colon since June and is in South Africa receiving treatment.
This was revealed on Monday in a court application that Mzembi’s lawyer, Job Sikhala made seeking for an administrative warrant of arrest. An administrative warrant of arrest will be easy to remove before court when Mzembi does appear after his chemotherapy treatments.
All his matters have been remanded to December 4 and in the meantime an administrative warrant of arrest has been issued while they wait for the State to furnish them with State papers to prepare for trial. Mzembi was last week issued with another administrative warrant of arrest in another case where he is accused of criminal abuse of office.
