Court rebuffs Mutharika, Muhara stay of execution on legal costs: ‘Pay K69.5m’

The High Court in Lilongwe has dismissed an application by former president Peter Mutharika and former secretary to the President and Cabinet Lloyd Muhara to stay execution of order for costs.

The two applied for the stay pending review of assessments of costs.

The court earlier ordered Mutharika and Muhara to pay K69.5 million as legal costs after they were faulted for trying to force Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda and Justice Edward Twea to go on leave pending retirement.

Lawyers for Malawi Law Society, Human Rights Defenders Coalition and Association of Magistrates in Malawi asked the court to order the two to personally meet costs of the case.

However, the two made an application for stay of execution of the order for costs.

The court has since dismissed the application.

Lock Mutharika up. Lock him up. He is shameless looting public funds at his old age. Lock him up.

Nothing about odds. The judges have forgotten their role and are being vindictive

Vindictive judges. This is not justice. Justice doesn’t seek revenge or persecution. Treat him like you would any citizen.

Muntharika should not expect anything from the current court set up under Nyirenda.even if they have merit. The DPP will also be wasting time with these biased Malawian courts.
