Chilumpha trashes Malawi judiciary

Former vice president Cassim Chilumpha has been ranting at the judiciary, saying the courts serve their own interests not the interests of the people.

Chilumpha: Discredited the courts

Chilumpha, a lawyer by profession and senior counsel, was reacting to the Monday’s Constitutional Court ruling on the election case which annulled the May 21 tripartite elections and called for a fresh election in five months time.

The court also reinstated Dr. Saulos Chilima as state vice president and said Malawi should adopt the 50+1 voting system.

But Chilumpha faulted the court for its ruling and said President Peter Mutharika is right to appeal against the ruling.

“Courts are not bigger than Malawi. Courts are supposed to serve the people not themselves,” said Chilumpha.

Chilumpha said Chilima should not have accepted the court sanctioned reinstatement to his position on moral ground.

However, some Malawians in social media platforms say Chilumpha has an axe to grind with the courts after the High Court disqualified him during the May 21 presidential election.

Others said Chilumpha’s political life is over and he might have been seeking attention from the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to resuscitate his political life.

Tips from well wishers: Nyasatimes is being used to advance MCP propaganda! Ndi zoonadi; why is it that any comment that is against MCP is not displayed? But only those against government and the DPP.

MCP has gained nothing from the court ruling
It is UTM and chilima who have gained
MCP is foolishly celebrating

MCP got what they asked the court to do, “nullify the elections” and that’s what they got. Chakwera didn’t ask to be declared president! Geeeez! Were you following the case at all? MCP wants a president that is select fairly by the people not imposed on us. Chilima and UTM brought nothing to the court that could have convinced the judges to render that historic judgment. MCP did all the hard work! If you don’t see this as a victory for MCP then please just sit down cadet! Your time is up!

Chaamba does this one’s brain, for sure this is one confused Chilumpha. Absolute nonsense. The man has no relevance at all, he is failed lawyer, failed MP, failed Minister, failed VP, nothing to show except 4 wives.
