AG fails to save Chaponda

115

The Mzuzu High Court has stood firm to its earlier ruling that Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development George Chaponda remains suspended despite the Attorney General (AG) Kalekeni Kaphale faulting the ruling.

On Thursday last week the high court judge Justice John Chirwa suspended Chaponda following an application by the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) that argued that the minister should stop working as Minister following reports of dubious transaction in the maize procurement under the Admarc.

George Chaponda

Suspended by the court.

However Kaphale faulted the ruling saying it contained ‘fundamental errors’ hence he was appeal for the ruling.

Today Justice Chirwa has maintained that Chaponda remains suspended until January 31 2017, until the release of commission of the inquiry that was appointed by President Peter Mutharika to investigate the scandal in which billions of money has been lost.

CSOs in the country have been calling for the firing of Chaponda on allegations that the minister has a hand on the maize report, the claims that were brushed aside by Chaponda who described those calling for resignation to have personal vendettas with him.

The Malawi leader also disclosed that he cannot take action until the inquiry releases a report.

He has also told the court to respect the laws that he is only one with the power to hire and fire Minsiters.

  3. the court’s are there to protect the constitution, court are not supposed to be pressured by th public but their decision should be based on the constitution, if the court’s decision to suspend the minister is unconstitutional then that raise questions, how different is the court’s to chaponda If both are doing something unconstitutional, courts need to act sober not be influenced by a section of the society, if it is constitutional y shifting the ruling to 31st, what if chaponda is found to be innocent, this will make some sections of thy society to lose trust in the court because their desicions are not based on the constitution.

  14. Well done to our courts for standing firm and not bowing down to power which lack respect for laws of the land. The leadership that doesn’t care about the very same people who put them in those high offices but now thinks they are untouchable.

  17. I always say that in whatever you do,remember that the people who vote for you are watching every move you are taking and the same people will make sure to tell the truth wherever you may go.

  18. When you are intelligent it’s better to accept that you are wrong otherwise end up loosing precious things that you depend on your everyday life,it’s politics so before you take a step focus where your foot it’s gonna step on.

  21. These thugs think they are above the law, to what we understand, the constitution of the Country, has more power than the President. But some dogs called expert of the laws, were barking outside court while they know for sure that laws are better off than their unthinkable President. For how long, will they protect these thugs including , their master? Note; it’s just a matter of time, you will know that Malawians are not stupid.
