Mutharika angry at Judges

Malawi president, Peter Mutharika, is angry and this time his anger is not at his political opponents but at the other branch of government called the judiciary.

The President has lashed out at judges for derailing his government’s efforts to end corruption.

Mutharika angered.

Mutharika has claimed that the injunctions the courts grants destroys the country and are evidence that the Judiciary is not working together with the Executive and Legislature in ending corruption.

President Mutharika was speaking on Tuesday when he presided over the swearing in ceremony of two new High Court Judges, Justice Jack N’riva and Justice Thomson Ligowe, at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe.

The ceremony was administered by High Court Deputy Registrar Agnes Patemba.

The Malawi leader said there must be a total separation of powers among the three branches of government – Judiciary, Legislature and Executive – since that is what rules of good governance demands.

“While my government will continue upholding rules of governance, let me appeal for harmony among the three branches of government. No branch should step on the way of the other.

“For instance, the battle against corruption can be won if the three branches of government are working together; some of the injunctions the judiciary grant are really destroying this country,” he said.

Mutharika then advised the newly sworn in judges to treat all people equally and to always put Malawi first before anything else.

Present during the ceremony were Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda, and Chief Secretary to Government Lloyd Muhara among other officials.

Until their appointment on June 29 this year, N’riva and Ligowe were High Court of Malawi and Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal Registrars, respectively.

    • Sukunama akulu ku Khoti ulibe ndalama shaa umaluza mulandu wa straight forward. The judiciary you have really a role to play. Law is before you but kukhotesa mumakhotesela zinthu shall follow you. Inocent people, you have declared guilt. The blood of the Inocent is on your head. Money got through good ways is good other than billions gotten from evil acts.
      These people and the police are the ones enabling mob justice to be at rampart because the community has lost trust to them. Ati file yatsowa. Ma Adjourn ena opanda ndimutu, the same case tallies the older one and there’s judgement attached to it, why are you failing to give it out. THE BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT WILL BE HAUNTING YOU TILL YOU DIE.

    • We need people like you Samuel Vingula.No bove is above the law.Magistrate Mandala wherever you are know dat the truth shall follow you if not on the earth but in the heaven.Kulolera Kupeleka Ma Judgement awiri osiyana coz of Money! God is watching!
