Court finds Thom Mpinganjira with a case to answer in judges bribery allegations

High Court Judge Dorothy DeGabrielle has found business mogul Thomson Mpinganjira with a case to answer in his alleged judges bribery case.

Mpinganjira at court

DeGabrielle delivers her ruling on Thursday.

She says evidence that the State brought before the court proved elements of attempting to bribe the judges that presided over the historic presidential election nullification case.

Mpinganjira has been told that he can enter his defence or remain silent as per his Constitutional rights.

Mpinganjira’s lawyer Patrice Nkhono has since told the court that they will have to discuss the ruling first before pondering on the next move if witnesses will be paraded or not.

I thought judges were learned. There are not. They claim they were being bribed. They go on to investigate the case, prosecute, provide witness accounts and judge the case. There is no prize for guessing the outcome!
What should they have done?
They could easily have invited retired judges or active judges from other countries to hear the case! Simple

This has nothing to do with pull down syndrome. Do not bury your head in the sand. This has sonething to do with ethics, integrity and greed. More than 17m people in Malawi, one rich guy is alleged to try and bribe the gudges. You should ask: what was his interest, what did he lack? What was/is he hiding? I think malawians need to have answers to these questions and more. Actually, it is in his interest and in the interest of his business and malawians that he gets cleared.A malawi tiyeni tidzilemekeza malamulo. The law is there to protect… Read more »

Absolutely not! This man tried to bribe judges in a case that was at the core of Malawi’s constitutional democracy. I don’t think you understand the gravity of the situation. This is the height of corruption and in some countries it’s even considered treasonous. A fine will not suffice. His good works count for nothing given how arrogant he was in even thinking he could bribe respectable judges serving an entire country. Your comment is why African will remain poor and at the mercy of greedy men. So quick to forgive and forget all because someone built a business. Lack… Read more »

This a political motivated case I can see that the court in Malawi are bias .I am not expert in law neither studied law but with my naked eyes the court are doing the will of Chakwera and his Government rather than Justice acording to the law.
