Police Prosecution objected to bail saying that murder is an indictable offence and asked for the case to be transferred to the High Court.

The court also heard that Lusaka is in the country on a visitors visa which expires in ten days.

The accused also informed the court that he will be filing a Notice of Alibi and has been given 21-days to do so.

The matter has been transferred to the High Court.

The case will be recalled on August 26th at the Suva High Court for mention.
