…defies court order and travels to Germany

Malawi minister of agriculture, irrigation and water development George Chaponda risks being arrested for defying a court order that restrained him from working as minister.

Chaponda who is reported to have left the country for Germany on official duties on Thursday has challenged a Mzuzu High court ruling that stopped him from working as a minister.

George Chaponda: risks arrest

The ruling followed an application by Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in the country who argued that Chaponda was likely to jeopardise investigations on the maize scam which are currently underway.

Confirming before a joint parliamentary committees of public accounts and on agriculture, principal secretary for the ministry of agriculture, irrigation and water development Erica Maganga said Chaponda’s invitation came before he was suspended.

Maganga also confirmed to have facilitated the trip for Chaponda who is attending Africa-German Association conference.

“We work with the minister and the ministry but the process for his trip were done before Christmas holiday and the letter came much…much earlier,” said Maganga.

Organizers of the conference have since confirmed that Chaponda was present during a morning session on Friday.

The joint committee members however expressed dismay arguing that Chaponda has put himself in contempt of court.

  13. It was in Nigeria, Gambia, USA, why why not in Malawi 2019, let we malawians vote for change 2019 enough is enough asamatitenge ngati ndife zisilu zawo

  14. The Police, ACB, Parliament etc are helples in the face of grieviou as of lawlessness. The precedent has been set and should be duly documented in the Malawi laws that someone who is on suspension can still report for work. Why are the churches quiet when the country is on fire? It beffles me, athief who steals K2000 is jailed for 5 years and yet someone in the corridors of power who is accused of stealing billions is noy evev invesigated ,he is left scot free. Malawi, what a pathetic country. The clergy where are u?

  15. Kkkk ican compare Chaponda with an elephant and the court as arat now who will arrest who in this liquid scenarial like this?

  16. Let them eat ,drink and do what ever they can but day is coming and that day ! They will be languishing behind the bars as there fellow political champions are doing.

  17. Judge cannot fire chaponda but president. Ma judge akumalawi umbuli komaso kuba. Anthu abeledwapo zawo apa masanasana. If he had bn appointed by a judge it would hv been possible . I think many people in this country have to b sent to school again. We still hv educated salvages . How can we let a judge robe us daylight? That judge must also be taken to court immediately !

  18. dziko la malawi likusauka chifukwa cha anthu akumwera chifukwa chomangovotera zilizonse.Musadandaule ndizimenezi.Mukhaula a malawi ine ndapita ku SA.

  22. I’ve Noted One Thing, Every Gorvement Has Got Its Own Tactics 4 Stealing Ndiye Zobela Anthu Ovutikazi Simukuchedwa Kuyaluka Nazo,Muzithawa Nokha Choncho Muchulukako Ku Exile Kkkkkkk

  23. Point correction Matonya Kondowe Chaponda hasn’t been mentioned in Maizegate hoax and he is innocent unless he’s proven guilty by the any competent court I know that you are a novice in legal term we really need a constitution court for legal interpretation

  24. …APM & DPP must know that they can’t clean corruption without casualties…..we expect a-court-ordered-arrest on the airport upon his return!!!

  25. kkkkk koma chiwanda chimenechi eish
    ine i thought judicially, legistrature and excutive has got the same power to one onother to avoid ruling with an iron fits but with these what we call dpp guys mmm they feel excutive has got more powers than others

    anyway 2019 is around the corner zibani ndalamazo mudzakhale ndi kampeni yobeba

  26. Chaponda must fired and arrested bcz he stl more money for the poor malawians,their is no need to lv this Stupid fool Chaponda who kills more lyfes of many malawians.Imagine the old people in the village who sty alone no some1 help them then suffer bcz of Chaponda.Tiyembekezere kusintha zinthu mu 2019.Amalawi tiyeni tigwilane manja pochosa onsewa,chifukwa zafikapa munthu obwera athano kutilamula chifukwa awa omwe ali amalawi amzanthu akungofuna kutibera pasi,ngati Pulesidenti akulephera kumuchosa Chaponda achokele limodzi mu 2019 chonde amalawi.Dziko lanthu silizatukuka chifukwa cha anthu okuba ngati amenewa.Nyumba yamalamulonso iwone bwino malamulo onyendetsera dzikoli.Ife monga mzika tizikhala ndi mphamvu zochosa msogoleri ngati sakuchita bwino.

  27. What are we waiting for?? Lets go to the streets till the whole regime resign itself…
    ….Malawi no longer the warm heart of Africa……

  28. It is unfortunate that he does not risk arrest upon coming back. How I wish we could free our judicially from the ills of politics, that way courts decisions will always be respected. Can someone bring my gun to the airport please!

  29. Ngakhale kuno ku zambia tili kudandaula zambili kulube angatimve all govrnments are like that.Us the poor we cry every day

  30. Zikuoneka anthu tikungocomenta mwa umbuli apa. Chaponda ndani angamumange kumalawi kuno? Ili ndi boma palokhatu kakhoti ka a mbwenu mbwenu ku mzuzu kutalitali pamene kamapereka chiletso nkuti chaponda ali kale ku RSA ulendo waku Germany

  31. Dpp wooooooohyeiiiieeeee Bhoma ilowooo!!! munasankha nokha mu sankhaso 2019 Chaponda emweyo kutiwawawa. Ndani angamange chaponda

  32. Arresting a criminal doesn’t require to publicise, just pick the handcuff ad arrest the crook. Why talk when you can just do your job. This talk of so so so ; we are damn tired of hearing such!

  33. It’s a lesson to Malawians and let’s do our best educates those that are in the rural areas so that they understand disadvantages and advantages of voting for the right candidate who will provide what we deserve because since we need development as technology is advancing.

  34. i think tisiye kudalira boma chifukwa iwo alindizofuna zao ndikuphatikiza ndimavuto athu zimakhala zosagwira,ndiye amalawi anzanga tiyen tikhale anthu ozipeleka pantchitokudalira zaulere tisiye.

  35. I think Malawian should act on this issue. He think he is more powerful than all the 15million plus citizens. God ‘s watching. I figured it out that is why they were not happy when bushiri was distributing maize.

  36. Germany was supposed to take a stand a refuse him entry into their country. Germany as a country has been in the forefront condemning corrupt practices in Malawi and has been involved in so many audits that reveals the rot in executive corrupt tendencies, but here they are entertaining the same when we are crying

  37. Amalawi tikungodzivuta,khoswe akakhala paphale sapheka.Angamange chaponda ndani?kuti apondedwe! Tiyeni tizingodya migayiwa yathuyi apabasi!Chikaponda chaponda basi!

  38. the exucutive has no powers to suspend or interdict the judge so do the courts have the powers to suspend or interdict the minister ? the constitution already has these as separation of powers.the framers knew that there will be abuse of powers both in the exucutive and judicially so it had to pit a yard stick.not all court orders are constitution al or legal and this invites a constitutional court for interpretation. if chaponda respect this court order ,one day the court will suspend the whole cabinet or even the president forgetting thhese are political posts and its only the President who can remove A minister in the gorvement

    • U R Right Mr. This Thing Has Gone Over Board And Now Its Political. What I Can Adivise Thd Yonger Bingu Is Just To Stand Strong By Not Allowing The Wish Of CSOs through courts to grub his constituonal powers to apoint & fire ministers

  39. i think we need government which can take action. We had 577billion chaponda was mentioned and no action from govt. Today the same chaponda does it again on maize the govt is just quite. We need new govt to protect the resources of malawians. There is a lot to be done for Malawi to be governed smoothly without these malpractices. No excuse need new blood, we need new government.

  40. Hon. Chaponda ndi makina opangira makina anzake, Palibe angamukwanitse. Kuteroko mudzingoti kwe kwe kwe ngati nkhuku choncho koma palibe chomwe mungachite. Inu mukuganidza kuti munthu wosankhidwa ndi President kukhala nduna angangochotsedwa mwachisawawa ndi ka court ka mthumba ka ku Mzuzu? Abwerako komwe anapitako and sangamangidwe. Ana mwachepa, mulira kuti ntiii!

  41. kkkk but who ‘ll bell the cat? our police? no,i doubt coz they r already enticed n intimidated by the so called dpp regime,,,,,Ghana 1;0 maliEgypt 1;0 Uganda

  42. Let them abuse power atleast for now, one day is one day. Its not too long before….. One day some of these politicians will be bared from attending paliament just right in front of the parliament Gate and it will be like a dream. That day will be birth of new malawi.TAKE US FOR JOY RIDE ATLEAST FOR NOW.

  43. we had several law trespassers who hav walked thru such meangless noises in MW before.this chadyaka too,with this jolly good xperience and reference worth citing, fully understands the nature of malawians who are like a dog that barks bt cant bite.We pretend we can make noise like egyptians,congorees,americans when we cant actually manage.If you genuinly wish him out of that position,come out of your caves n accept even if it means death like our our departed brothers in such afore-mentioned politically tensed nations.Otherwise this chadyaka wakudyakeni kusingo wanganya! you can even see for yourselves the kind of challenge he manifests.Tiyeni nazoni

  44. Looking carefully at the events surrounding this socalled maizegate issue, there seem clear evidence of panic within the Opposition. There was once an issue of vehicles but died out soon as it was discovered that MCP President, Lazarus Chakwera was one of the beneficiaries.

  45. Where were arresting officials when he was leaving for Germany? Or did they also learn from newspapers that Chaponda had left the country?

  46. No arrest will take place ,,this issues is political stalemate with political solution nothing like courts nor enquiries.Chaponda will come out a Victor.

  47. A! a! makosana tiyeni tidabwepo apa. Munthuyu anakwera ndege anakwelera kuti? Mesa ndi air port? zinatheka bwanji kuti chiletso chili ku khothi iye nkumagwirabe ntchito ngati nduna? Apolice athu nawo aa ?????
