Malawi courts continue work suspension over lack of funding

Malawi Magistrate Courts have suspended their operations while the Supreme Court of Appeal and High Courts have slowed down their activities following delay by the government to disburse funding to the Judiciary.court strike

According to Judiciary Spokesperson, Mlenga Mvula, the development has put the arm of government in a crisis as it is failing to operate its normal duties due to delay in allocating funds.

“Most of the cases have been halted because most Judicial workers are failing to perform their duties, there is no stationery and fuel among others,” he said.

Mlenga therefore warned that if the situation worsens, the High Court will have no choice but to suspend high profile cases which include those of theft and plundering of public resources popularly known as Cash-gate.

    The judiciary is not working not because of shortage of stationary but they just want to protect their colleagues who r also implicated in the c/gate scandal!Nothing else! Musatipusitse,hw many govt departments have stopped working coz of shortage of funding?Politics is also taking part here!

    It is not only the judiciary that is not being funded. Even Malawi Electoral Commission is in trouble. We hear that they are not even able to pay for their internet service or even buy a ream of photocopying paper. So which institution (other than the state house) is this government funding that they are supposed to fund? Zero-aid budget effects zayamba msangatu apa. Tifika June chaka cha mawa???

    I don’t symphathise with courts and judiciary in general. You are the ones who made Peter Mutharika president of this country. You always give stupid judgements.
