Dissatisfied with the verdict, the former Deputy IGP Katanga appealed to the High Court and filed an application  for bail pending appeal in the subordinate court. Delivering his ruling on the bail application, Magistrate Chibwili said though he upholds reasons for convicting her, he has exercised discretion to her grant her bail.
