APM swears in new judges: urges them to fight corruption

President Peter Mutharika on Tuesday presided over the swearing-in of newly-appointed High Court judges at a function held at Sanjika Palace in Blantyre where he advised them to work hand in hand with government to fight against corruption.

Writing on his official Facebook after the ceremony, Mutharika said judges occupy a very important place in the Malawian society because they are the guardians of the rule of law and justice which are key pillars for successful socio-economic development of any nation.

According to Mutharika, it is his government’s mandate to promote good governance through separation of powers between and among the three branches of government which are the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary.

“My government has the responsibility of ensuring the safety and security of its citizens, to protect and promote their dignity and to uphold the rule of law. For this to be achieved, as the Head of State and Government, I have the responsibility to ensure that there is an independent and effective judiciary,” said Mutharika.

“It is my hope that the new judges will discharge their duties to the best of abilities in serving a democratic population that is becoming more and more aware of their fundamental rights,” added Mutharika.

The judges who have been sworn in as High Court judges of Malawi are Joseph Chigona, Dorothy de Grabrielle, Ruth Chinangwa, and George Bakuwa.

  • Its not swear them to eraducate corruption but to hide and protect them because even president himself he is the master of corruption

    • What a man of integrity like you Mr. Maulidi, you have spoken out of all.
      I like visionary citizens with no fear where credit is due.
      Both of them are misery crooks, don’t ever trust DPP rigged vote of innocent idle Malawians.
