Court reserves ruling on Mwapasa police IG confirmation challenge

High Court judge Kenyatta Nyirenda has reserved his ruling on an application by Attorney General to vacate an injunction restraining parliament from confirming Duncan Mwapasa as Inspector General of Police.

Mwapasa: To wait

The court met in chambers on Monday for an interparte hearing on whether the injunction should be vacated and the judicial review proceeds or not.

Lilongwe Mpenu MP Eisenhower Mkaka argues that Mwapasa cannot be confirmed as Inspector General of Police as Rodney Jose remains on that position although he has proceeded on leave pending retirement.

Lawyers from both sides made their submissions on the matter when they met in the chambers on Monday.

Mkaka is also accusing president Peter Mutharika of promoting Mwapasa to deputy Inspector General of police in 2016, saying this was illegal as the Malawi Police Service Commission is the only body mandated by law to do so.

Mwapasa is not fully educated to claim the position,, Mr kainja could be the right candidate for the position that elder fully educated unlike Mwapasa, when it comes to leadership appointment we must look at education levelnot tribe or place of origin of the person

Mwapasa ndi munthu osaphunzira asalowe. Komanso nd wankhaza koopsya. Asankhe wina a Mutharikawo. Chokakamila Mwapasa ndi chani pali a police ambiri mbiri a nzeru zawo. Munthu oyipa mtima kwambiri uyu. Mutati mufunse a police ambiri, they would actually tell you that they do not want him.

This Malawi is not for one tribe or two tribes,so whether you are from the DPP camp or opposition camp you must always put Malawi first than your party.We all know how Mwasapa behaves,he is also on the Robert Chasowa’s murder case pending investigation but since he belongs to DPP the case is like a dead story.But one day he shall be in for it because God is for all of us.

What Mkaka is doing reminds me what the former mp for Blantyre South Gerald Mponda used to do. He opposed everything but came nxt term he was voted out
