Chaponda roars in parliament, warns name callers of lawsuit

Former minister of agriculture Dr George Chaponda on Thursday became irritated and agitated after opposition legislators kept on calling him ‘maizegater’ and ‘Kaloswe’.

Chaponda: I can sue for slander

This is despite the fact that the High Court last week upheld a lower court ruling in acquitting him in all counts of corruption in what became of maizegate and possession of K95 million currency in his house.

His contribution on the State of the Nation Address was regularly interjected by the opposition backbenchers, forcing him to warn that he would drag them to court for defamation and character assassination.

However, members of parliament are immune from prosecution on what they say whilst in the House but can be sued if they say it outside the House.

Chaponda, a lawyer by profession, said it is unfortunate for the law makers to call him such names when courts cleared him of wrong doing.

The Anti-Corruption Bureau dragged him to court over suspicious purchase of maize from Zambia.

This guy is a lawyer by qualification not profession. His conducts are contrary to this noble profession. Of course we have a number of them. Shame.

He should consider himself very lucky indeed especially being found with K95 million in cash in the house. Only in Malawi can such a case be considered as nothing wrong.
