Don’t name your dog Mutharika, you might be arrested

178

The naming of dogs is such a private affair but it appears in Africa it is not really a private affair and if one is not careful then they may end up in Prison.

A man in Nigeria is in custody after he named his dog Buhari, a name which corresponds with the name of the country’s President.

Joe Fortemose Chinakwe, a trader in Ogun state in Africa’s most populous country has been arrested for naming his dog Buhari, the Nigerian media has reported.

dog.

Man names a dog after Nigerian President and gets arrested.

Chinakwe was arrested after one of his neighbours of Northern extraction complained bitterly that he named his dog after his father, Alhaji Buhari.

According to the Nigerian media, Chinakwe told his friend to kill the dog and eat the meat as a way of getting rid of evidence in the case against him.

A relation to the suspect said Chinakwe was being persecuted for no just cause and expressed fears that he may either be poisoned inside police cell or thrown into jail.

Buhari also happens to be the name of the Nigerian President.

Although nobody has been arrested in Malawi for naming their dog a name similar to that of the President even if it is of another person’s grandparent, the Malawian law stipulates that an insult against the President should lead to an arrest.

  20. You cannot give your child a name of a person you hate, a neighbour you hate, a family member you hate, that means you are insane. You bring closer the name to your family or property which has contributed positive change to you, your family, your community, country and beyond. It means you adore, like and love the name. If a Jew who survived concentration camp names the child Hitler, the name will just torture the parents and open the old wounds. The name has power.

  21. A thomasi nkhani yabwino komano example ya zinthu zinapatsiwa mainazo nizabwino zokhazokha kusiyana ndi galu nchimodzimodzi nanuso aneba anu kukhala ni galu nkumutcha Thomasi I tink kungakhale ya pachiweniweni yofunika UN kudzalanditsa.

  22. Eeee mpakana maina. If my dog is john, then all the John will arrest me. So which names are allowed. My dog is my dog i wil call any name and i have a right to do so. If u dont like it then change yo name. So what charges are u going to press on the guy who call a name that u dont like.

    • if iname my dog michael mkandawire inu mukudutsa panjira ine ndikumaitana inu kuvomera ine kunena kut ndikuitana galu wanga mungachimve bwanj thats an insult vuto tikamaziphatikiza ndi ndale tizipeleka maganizo olakwika

    • That wil never change. U can call it i dont care that wil never change who i am. So what charges are they going to accuses this guy. If pple give the dog yo name, that shows u are disgusting or u act like a dog. Why did they called the name 4rm the beginning? The arrest is unlawful. That is a civil matter not a criminal case. Now trust me many dog are going to adopt the name. This game is rough.

    • Loius watch yo tongue idiot. I didn’t fuckn ask yo opinion on my life. So if u don’t have a word just eat fuckn shut up. Who do u think u are fuckn malaka? I dont give a fuck damme. Yo headteacher to yo kids not to me. I have a right of expression and u have to respect it u like or not. No fwii fwii to me am a big man than u teacher.

    • That good Enock. Becoz we are sick and tired of pple who think they can bull us defending mbewa zaanthu. They is not name which is restricted to copyright act.

    • @Jackson nawenso kuwerenga macomment azitsilu kusowa chochita ndiwe chitsilu. I think we are all zitsilu including u. And u are the C.E.O of zitsilu. How do u know kuti ndife zitsilu? U dont have a right to call anyone chitsilu. Watch yo tongue!!!

  23. a name is just an identification bt it doesnt change behaviour of an organism. am thomas d phiri i can change it to be Madelicate Organs and my character wont change. here in malawi we have paul kagame road, bingu comference hall, kamuzu college, or central hospital. can u tel me the section in the constitution of the republic of malawi which restrict names. my first born wil be ….

    • What respect r u talking about ? Name is just a name …and mind u a name doesn’t mean anything it just a symbol …. Thus agreeable thing to represent something…. Therefore any one can name anything any name of his or her choose as far as he/she is able to recognise it .. So wake up bro and see that the word mutharika doesn’t mean anything thing but is people’s interpretation that it may mean the current DPP President or may be that dog or even certain cashgater or may be a car to others so to me there is nothing and is not constitutional to arrest any one for name ……. May be this President is thinking that is god … Get me right I did not say God for I know for sure that he is not the Almighty…….. To be continued …….

    • Emmanuel Chikoko, your point is just the same with that of Thomas. Thomas hasn’t mentioned anything like “respect” as you are putting it, but restrict which means restrain,forbid,stop.

      He is challenging the writer to tell him the part of our constitution that stipulates on names. I’m sure we don’t have.
      Re-read his point.

    • Yah u posted to wrong person’s comment someone talked about showing respect …to President … I am real sorry for posting to this good comment…

  24. Tikuchedwa mkunyoza kutukwana anzanu mukwatukwanawo zawo zinayera ndipo zikuyererabe pano inu ndine tikutuwa mmmmm amalawi mutani kodi ,Vuto titukwana nkunyoza koma sitingasove mavuto anthu olo mpang’ono pomwe

  25. Come arrest me if u want cos i dnt see a reason why i shld change the name for my Dog Muthalika 2yrs nw wth this name so what?? A name is a name….Lawyers wake up its time to eat money after winning the case!!

    • I can smell a rat here. Cowards seek revenge, powerful pple they keep silent, and intelligent pple just ignore. They is an agent here. Wake up this is a free country. Kaya zanu izo birds of same feathers flow together. A dog is a pet and its part of our family.

  26. ine ndili ndi ka nursery school komwe fees yake ndinakweza kwambiri malangana ndi economy ya dziko lathu lino. makolo a ana atandidandaulira kt ndisiseko, ndinasisa ndi k50. from that day anthu akumanditchula bingu. ine si galu kma munthu nde pali vuto ngat?

  27. In fact naming my dog Munthalika is an insult, but naming it Peter it may sound far much better. Nanga Munthalika kwathu kuno is not a common name that can be given to pets.
