Joyce Banda warned against threatening Mutharika

Chancellor College Associate professor and head of political and administrative studies, Happy Kayuni, has warned former Malawi President Joyce Banda that she should only threaten to take President Peter Mutharika to court if she thinks she has enough evidence that he is defaming her.  

Joyce Banda

Banda: Has been lashing Mutharika.

The former head of state, in a statement released on December 27, threatened Mutharika that they will battle in court if he continues tarnishing her name and legacy.

She said Mutharika being a lawyer should be aware of end results of defaming her name.

“I wish to inform Malawians without fear of contradiction that all these attempts to tarnish my name and legacy are the work of President Peter Mutharika personally and the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government. It is unfortunate that as a lawyer he does not realize that it is immoral to abuse his immunity from prosecution by scandalizing my name. I would have wished I met him in court so he can prove my guilt to the entire world,” warned Banda.

However, in an interview with Malawi24, Kayuni said that there is a possibility of truth in her claims but he advised Banda to provide evidence to prove her innocence so that she can defend her reputation.

Kayuni said Banda should have enough evidence when directly attacking Mutharika.

“It can be possible but the problem is that there is no real evidence on what she is saying and I think what is important for her  is if she thinks she is honest and there is nothing wrong on her side then there is no reason why she should be afraid of the whole issue.

Happy Kayuni

Kayuni: Banda must tread carefully.

“In fact she should have been in Malawi clearing her name using the right procedures. I don’t know why she seems to be reacting like that when actually the allegations have nothing to do with Mutharika. She does not have enough evidence to be talking about Mutharika, and then she shouldn’t directly talk like that,” stated Kayuni.

In her statement Banda singled out allegations by cashgate convict and former principal secretary for Tourism, Mrs. Treza Namathanga Senzani who claimed that the former Malawi leader had instructed cabinet ministers to steal millions of Kwacha from their respective ministries to finance the People’s Party (PP) 2014 elections campaign.

Banda who still remains in exile challenged Mutharika that she possesses all the secret information the DPP administration is championing to have her arrested.

She said: “I am not surprised by Mrs. Senzani’s allegations because I have received information from several serving senior civil servants that they are also being pressurized by the DPP government of President Peter Mutharika to implicate me and former members of my cabinet in cashgate in the same manner Mrs. Senzani has done.”

Meanwhile, Banda has denied having had a hand in cashgate saying there was no alleged meeting to steal from government.

She further said cabinet meetings are attended not only by ministers but also principal secretaries and other technocrats who belong to different political parties.
According to Banda, with such people, no scheme to steal government money for purposes of financing one political party would have succeeded because someone is bound to raise an alarm.

  10. All these comments here jus display how stupid and shallow your intelkect is and professor of political studies for somebody who majored in politics he sure has nothing to talk about all these problems in this country and we are still talking about cash gate why dont we talk about solutions we choose peter to bring solutions not to take us as fools cz it seems to me this whole cashgate thing is just a billboard to blind side us to whats really going on how stupid can u people be not to see that even if she gave back the money it still wouldnt be enough do you people honestly think the economy of malawi is in joyce bandas bank account how nakve can people be this is all a ploy to blind side us the current goverbment should be giving us solutions and not wasting our time on such trivial matters

    • xul sidakuthandizeni. how can the govt solve the problems we r going through if members of opposition parties have stood aloof? its not tym to let alone government, this is the responsibility of every Malawian .

    • Perhaps you donot understand whats going own every malawian is doing there jobs we are still paying our taxes are we not when you say its up to all of us what do you expect us to do that we are not already doing . Your claim of the opposition pary is nothing short of uncredible how do you expect the opposition to contribute when the government wants to do everything in secret. For my last arguement i would like to elucidate to you as to the reason a country has a president and a government. Every institution has to have an arm of leadership the general public doesnt to contribute to happenings individyally we have representatives for that who are the government the only reason we enployed them was to find solutions and not to extort us. Mr brown you arguement only serves as an illustration to the exact point you are commenting on your point shows your retrogressive perception of what a leader is and what a government is are you suggesting that from our homes we can implement fiscal policies that will benefit the country or are you suggesting that from our homes we should pass bills that will the country. Please perharps i have miscontrued your point if however you fill you can justify your point please eleborate on what you think as malawian citizens we can do from our homes please enlighten us

    • Mmmm,a Yankho,munthu akangoyamba kugwiritsa ntchito mawu oti stupid kangapo, sayankhulanso zanzeru nkuona anzanuwo akudabwani,you better comment to the issue with sobber mind.

    • Its true that we all need to work together but as civilians our contribution is limited is it not in most cases our main contribution is taxes however the government plays a bigger part as its the government that holds all legislative powers you and i cannot pass laws you and i cannot implement policies or go to parliament our dyty as citizens is to support our government financially through taxes other than that the is really not much we can do as indivuduals and on your point of the opposition standing aloof i beg to differ the government wants to act alone otherwise UDF would still exists the government clearly does not want opposition

  23. You are preventing her from speaking. Intimidating a woman. Both of them they are xchanging non evidence issues she can’t keep quiet while the man also speaks too much about her.
