Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale has made fresh application to the Supreme Court of Malawi to force the anti-Jane Ansah protest organisers to suspend their demonstrations until the government and the rights activists reach a common understanding.

Relentless protests

The application has been filed Thursday just hours before HRDC officials and government’s top lawyer  meet on Friday at the court sanctioned meeting in Blantyre.

Doris Mitole, an official in the office of the Attorney General has confirmed of the fresh application.

“There is need for the HRDC to hold the demonstrations until the issue has been resolved,” said Mitole.

Lawyer for HRDC Khwima Chiza said he was surprised with the fresh application but said he would comment on the matter when the two sides at the Supreme Court on Friday.

Kaphale always kufuna kuteteza mbava , where is your contempt of Court threat case is???

The problem with Kaphale is that he always want to out shine other lawyers through back door but not really knowing what the Constitution says.

This time around the supreme Court judge won’t be on your side bcoz he is also fade up of your tactics to suppress the Constitution.

So once the Supreme Court rule in favour of the protesters then expect more chaos .

Courts must trade carefully – Supreme court. Malawians are watching you and you can not deny their rights for the sake of few individuals.

Loser, he must have been ashamed to see Malawians demonstrating on Wednesday – he hates Malawians. He defends thieves at his household glory.

Which Malawians are you talking about? You mean thugs? These are the ones that met their match in Karonga. They were squarely pannel beaten. Only stupid people can imagine to take over government from streets.
