Meanwhile, former Tourism Minister Ronald Chitotela has equally been granted twenty thousand kwacha cash bail in his own recognizance with two working surities in the sum of two hundred thousand kwacha each.

By broadcast time only Mr. Chitotela had met bail conditions while Mr. Lusambo will spend a third night in custody because his surities had not been verified by the Anti-Corruption Commission by close of business.
