Chaponda’s lawyers want arrest warrant cancelled

110

Lawyers for former minister of agriculture and water development George Chaponda have applied for the cancellation of warrant of arrest for the accused.

Making the application at Blantyre Chief Magistrate Court, Chaponda through his lawyers Jai Banda and Madalitso M’meta argued that the state through the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) blatantly, flagrantly and defiantly disobeyed the terms and prescriptions contained in the warrant.

George Chaponda: wants warrant revoked

The defence team said: “ACB has refused, neglected, ignored or otherwise deliberately failed to comply with the warrant requiring the ACB to produce the said applicants before the court upon arresting them”.

They added further that the ACB has thereby hugely undermined both the rule of law and the authority of the court.

The lawyers want warrant of arrest obtained on July 14 by ACB be cancelled.

The Chief Resident Magistrate court Simeon M’dedza is to make a ruling at 1:30 pm today.

Chaponda was arrested on Wedneday following investigations into the maize purchasing scandal and he faces charges of corruptly performing public functions, misuse of public office and possession of foreign currency contrary to sections 25 (A) and 25 (B) of the Corrupt Practices Act and regulation 25 A (1) of the exchange control regulations as read with section 3 of the Exchange Control Act respectively.

  4. my name is Bethel Mungazi and this is a testimony of how i got cure from HIV/AIDS, i have being suffering from hiv/aids for the past 8 years without the expectation of being cure, i was on ARV, despite the ARV i was not comfortable and there was nothing i could do because i knew and i was told by my doctor that there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, my dream of getting cured came to past the day i came across a testimony like this on a facebook page of how someone was cured through the help of DR ABUMEN herbal medicine, i was advice its not real that there is no cure but something keep telling me to contact him, of which i later did and the cure was sent to me with an instruction on how to use it which i did accordingly and went for a test, to my greatest suprice the result was negative i could not hold back the tears of joy running down my chick my doctor was shocked, i thank God that am finanly cured from hiv/aids, DR ABUMEN is an herbal specialist that can cure hiv/aids, you can contact him through his email which is ([email protected]) or whatsapp his mobile number is +2347085071418, am sharing to save lives

  5. I am smelling a rat the way this case is being handled….why is the ACB failing to take him to court? Mark the Magistrate’s words….the suspects have to appear before the court by 9 sm mawa….failing which the case risks being dismissed….unless something happens this is the direction this case is taking.

  6. This Jai man and his colleague are defiantly, blantantly and flagrantly disobeying and ignoring the anger contained in our minds. Do they want our clergy to organise another prayers? Becoz what has happened now is an answer to the July 6, 2017 prayers. No selective justice!

  12. MCP inazolowela kupha moti mufuna Bwana chapondawa mutawanyonga ngati anaba Zakunyumba kwanu iwo anagwilitsa ntchito yomwe timati initiative osati kuba monga inu aMCP mukunenela!!!!!

    • That is public fund. Misusing/ mismanagement or whatever you call it is theft. Theft : means taking anything from anyone without permission. That is theft. Now because this guy is threatening to implicate other people in the case then you want to change the tune. If he is innocent, then why he was fired from his post. Let the law take its course. Everyone in Malawi is below laws not Chaponda or Jopiro. Anyone breaks the law must face the music.

    • awa ndi anyamata amene amadya nawo ndalama zopatsidwa ndi chaponda okuba misonkho yathu ndi osadabwa nawo amenewa mgodi wawo wasokonekera

    • Man Oscar mutathawuza kuti mcp yamba kumanga mbava za Dpp?mmmm what shame you mean you can not be able see different between MCP and ACB at your age?

    • MCP is a party composed with Malawian citizens. Are you saying MCP is not Malawian citizens. They have a right to know and to point out wrong doing. All government funds belongs to you and me including MCP. Its only DPP majority is in control. So if they misuse we have a right as citizens to know how it is used. ACB must be transparent and not favour because of race, political party, tribe or what so ever. They must show us how transparent they are. Know your rights.

    • Mmmm what I see in you guyz is anger of being in opposition side’if it could be that your in Government side you could have seen this issue differently

    • That what a clueless person end up saying. Even if DPP is on opposition they have every right to know everything on public funds to law enforcement. That is party of democracy. No anger my friends that is a fact. Government is built by ruling party( majority ) and opposition (minority) in democratic country. So I wonder if your don’t know all this

    • A Hilary Clinton wamisa anaona nkhondotu paja!!!!
      Koma Chomwe chazaza mwainu ndi Nkwinzi basi komabe olila samugwila pakamwa lilani momwe mungalilire penapake ndikuku mvetsetsani.

    • Indeeee!!!!!! musakane chisanzo inuyo ndi MCP akenedy onse aja ndi AMCP komanso ndi akumpoto omwe anapita kuka gwila maganyu ku BT anaiwala chomwe chinawapititsa ku BT

  13. Every thing is money; guys this is the country of full of tricks & corruptions, no doubt he gonna be a free man just now, do not forget money talks these days. Tili ndi anthu oziwa kuononga chilungamo bola uli ndi cash basi zatheka, lets wait & see!!

  14. Welcome To Malawi,where Mbava Zoba Ndalama Zambiri SZmangdwa Bt Oba Nkhuku Nd Mbale.So,its Ma Hop Dat Malaw Wu Neva Develop.Hahahaha Wake Up Malawi And Dats Y Kamuzu Ankat Kwacha!!!Mcp Its Yo Chance To Beat.

  15. Why don’t we wait until we close the brighe. Mwakhala mukusokosa pano mmangeni mmangeni lero amumanga so Wat . Malawi ndi dziko loti silizatheka ayi.

  16. ngati dziko likumuopa chapondayo ,apereke kwa amalawi omwe adadya chimanga chondura kuti achite naye.nanunso a lawyer chenjerani kuno ndikunja kunayanja lichero,chaponda yemweyo ukumuona ngati Malawi ndi munda wake adzakuponya kwakuya .

  17. Ma Lawyerwa Ndi Amalawi Pena Ma Tznian Ufulu Wamtundu Chani Akunena Wa Chapondawo?Awanso Nde Anthu Oipa Mmaphunziro Ngakhale Kubakilako Nde Nkhani Monga Imenei.

  18. mbali inanso ngati malawi akukanika kutukuka its bcoz of these stupid dangerous animals called lawyers…they’re criminals & not patriotic..

  19. In reality Chaponda’s case can not be prosecuted with fairness. This guy is a sacred cow the only justice that can be done to we malawians is to burn his house, tie him on the tree in the middle of mulanje mountain and leave him to die there. Case closed

  20. That is Malawi I know, we dont want to correct things when they are going wrong, especially if the thing is done by these very improved peasants {VIP}.
