George Chaponda: Reinstated as Parliament leader.

Chaponda was replaced as leader of the house pending a Supreme Court of Appeal ruling over an injunction Civil Society Organisations sought depriving him of his duties as Minister over his feared involvement in the unscrupulous purchase of maize from Zambia- a scandal christened maizegate.

The matter was brought before Supreme Court Justice, Dunstain Mwaungulu, by the Attorney General so that he could reverse the decision of the High Court.

Delivering his ruling on Friday, 10 February 2017, Mwaungulu agreed with the Attorney General that the High Court erred in its granting of an injunction to the CSOs.

Mwaungulu indicated that the Court overstepped its mandate as the power to hire or fire a minister rests with the President and subsequently the suspension of a minister.

Mwaungulu also indicated that there was no law requiring the suspension of a person if they are under investigation.

Calls have since started for President Mutharika to fire Chaponda whose actions have been labeled as suspicious in a reports submitted by the commission of inquiry set up by Mutharika last month.

  1. Malawi is still struggling to attain and enjoy its democracy. In a democratic national assembly that can’t happen. A vivid example is our friends in South Africa. The opposition is doing everything possible to bring to book everyone who is looting public resources. DA and EFF are doing a recommendable job to needy south Africans. They can’t allow such a person to be in the house of honourables. I hope it’s high time our opposition must learn to protect and defend the public resources. The judiciary must also help to alleviate such malpractice. It seems the judiciary itself is porous in decision making

  14. This is why malawi needs a vibrant opposition like the EFF in RSA….idont think the EFF would allow to be have a corrupt person like chaponda as a house leader..this just means the whole parliament is corrupt..

    • Inno, thats not usavage thats being patriotic do you think if malema was a hand claper like malawian opposition zuma akanabweza ndalama zomwe anaba zija…What the EFF was saying was in line with the RSA constitition…the dpp led government is sharing tax payers monies at will because our parliament is too passive.

    • It seems Chaponda has become so powerful that he is feared by many in Malawi and you want to create a hero out of nothing [email protected]? The President’s Commission has recommended he should be probed by ACB over his involvement in the flouted procurement procedures specifically the Transglobe issue as of now the Leader of the house is Kondwani Nankhumwa unless things change this afternoon where the President writes the Speaker informing him that Dr. Chaponda continues as Leader of Government Business in the house and this article is just giving an opinion based on Friday’s ruling by the Supreme Court. At this point, its the President who can decide on how to proceed on the issue as recommended by the Msosa Enquiry.

    • I like how the opposition parties works in South Africa. The parliament is indeed democratic. No one can think of looting tax payers money at the meantime. Because everyone knows that will be exposed to the public once known. And entitled to pay as Zuma did. But our opposite and the judiciary is not helping the citizens of the country to enjoy their powers

  15. amene alinazo azawonjezeledwa zambir kma omwe alibe azalandidwa or zochepa zomwe alinazo,anatelo yesu.tanthauzo anthu osauka akab nkhuku zaka mpaka 15 kapenans kuwalanda zomwe alinazo pomwe olemera ndi awa or abe kapena kusokoneza ndalama zaboma angowapasa kachilango kochepa mwinaso kuwakweza udindo

    • Gdwl gain weight isnt a thing to b proud of, to me tht an alarm of of obessy, u dont hav to brag abt tht anymo. Wen u realise tht ths wat u r sayin now is inhuman, u’ll feel sorry for urslf for mentioning God on stupid things, things tht He, himself doesnt like. Better repent n stop ur fellow greedy politician from stealin from their own country. Look at urself ths wasnt ur plan wen startin standard one back then i guess, u wanted to work for th money not to steal like wat u r doin now, think again my brother, u can b a better man we can rely on. U can change n we can change.
