President Peter Mutharika has been asked by the Malawi Law Society to help in speedily resolving the spate of strikes which are paralysing public and justice delivery services in the country.

The appeal was made by Law Society’s executive committee members  when  they met the Head of State, in camera, on Wednesday for over an hour at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe.

The MLS Secretary Felisah Kilembe  who briefed journalists in the company of Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale  said her delegation made its position of concerns clearly to the President and his government.

She, however, expressed the hope that the judiciary impasse would be resolved.

“We are very hopeful that this issue will be resolved very soon,” said Kilembe.

Kilembe said they were convinced that the Mutharika administration is working “very hard to resolve the strikes.”

She also said the lawyers pressed for property-tracing approach for the Cashgate culprits.

“We would like government to have an expert for tracing stolen property who must trace the property connected to cashgate and recover it,” she said,

The lawyers, Kilembe said, want government to ensure that all  culprits involved in the  plunder of  over K20 billion from the public coffers -Cashgate Scandal – should face justice and not delayed.

On his part, Kaphale said the meeting was crucial because it was the first time the lawyer’s body  was meeting President Mutharika  – a law professor – since his entry into office in May this year

Mutharika has been meeting members of different professional bodies and recently hosted journalists to a party and cash handouts which critics claimed was a “bribe.”

  11. clement says:

    Lawyers are starved because of this judicial strike. In fact they are the ones that put the judiciary in ransom; getting the so called “exparty/interparty” injunctions. Malawians are angry with you. One of your own duped Mzuni students

  13. clement says:

    After audiencing with APM, what did he say. You mean he did not produce a single word?

  14. clement says:

    In as much as I do not agree with APM policies, am in agreement with him for refusing to raise Judicially salary. They are good at delaying justice, hiding files, getting bribes and receiving salutations. The increments should go to teachers and nurses. We can live without the judicially

  15. jubeki says:

    Ma lawyers ake ati ziphwisi zokha zokha . Zoona you say 20 billion as if you live abroad. 92 billion kuyiopa kunena poti mwalandira ma 200 thousand aja eti. Umboni ndili nawo mwatenga ma 200 thousands mukane pasanthe 2 days ndisanawulure. Munabwera kwa APM muzadandaula za maluzi anu after kuona kuti business kulibe mma office mwanu . Zisiru zanyapamphi

    Mambulasa ndi Ambuyako!!!!! Si paja unkati mtima pansi APM akuwina.

  20. Alungwana says:

    Are you going to act only when other people have asked you to do so? Then you are a pressurised president. Wekha uziganiza without being told.

  21. aTeacher says:

    Ma lawyers sanganene whether they hv been bribed cause they are all as corrupt palibe wabwino. Such a smart profession pano its stinks like poop.

  22. Paul mphwiyo says:

    Property tracing ya chani agalu inu ma lawyer! mwadya za cashgate pano mukuti property chani! Kutopa eti? Tazingozikandani basi, zopusa.

  23. Za ziiiiiu. We need quick solutions to this. These judiciary people make unnessary demands like V8 SUV. Which roads? Later they will ask for racing cars like those driven by Lewis Hamilton. We are a poor nation and our demands should be commensurate with our economy. Our leaders must lead by example too by not giving thensekves too much. We question them when they do such silly things and we demand the same. The judiciary should also learn going to work on time. The cases start as late as 11 am. The Industrial Relations Court is the worst court and yet we pay taxes for such services to be given back to the citizen. Peter Muthalika is a lawyer but the man is not serious. He is just very childish and only wants to enjoy state resources. We don’t want another Bakili Muluzi in this country. We lost 10 years with Bakili and moat of the problems we see to day starting from corruption and degradation of social services are as result of Bakili Muluzi. During Kamuzu we never knew private schools and private hospitals. All these deteriorated under the biggest devil Bakili. Is Peter taking the same path? It seems so. Bingu was much serious though he changed after marrying Callista. Be serious Peter please. We know you are an old person who has very few years to live. Possibly those are your fears but kumayamika mwadyapo.

  24. Ineyo says:

    A Khonyongwa mwati mupindire ka shirt ka blue nkatimo, we always go to our leaders with too much respect consequently failing to present what our concerns really are

  27. Kamkwalala says:

    Look at Mutharika’s trousers legs in the photo! Says it all. Would you ever see Kamuzu Banda or Bakili Muluzi posing in a picture in trousers that look like a sack? Mutharika what have you and Ben Phiri been doing with those trousers? Does Gertrude know about Ben?

  28. henz says:

    what about k92 billion you just mentioned k20 billion here thus not fair since you know the bwana himself is also involved in k92b.

  29. Matokoso says:

    So APM said nothing during the meeting?

  30. luckypat says:
