FDH bank CEO Mpinganjira in court for contempt

FDH Bank Limited chief executive officer  Thom Mpinganjira expected to appear in court next month for contempt of court  under Civil Cause number 681 of 2013 between the bank and Maranatha Girls Academy Limited.

Mpinganjira: Refuses to sign court notice

Mpinganjira and  FDH head of credit Tiwonge Khoje are accused of  “contemptuously disobeying” two court orders on the long-drawn casw with the Academy.

The bank is supposed to make a payment of K784 830 909.16 (about $1.2million) due to Maranatha Girls Academy Limited as compensation for loss and damage arising from a breach of three months statutory notice by FDH Bank.

Court documents show that Maranatha Girls Academy Limited sought declarations on a matter regarding a notice of intention to sell the applicant’s property Title Number South Lunzu 7/45 (Maranatha Girls Academy Limited) advertised in the newspapers on September 17 2013, which the court found to be wrongful and flouting Section 68 of the Registered Land Act.

The court ordered that the registrar should assess general damages arising from the wrong.

The High Court issued a notice order for Mpinganhira to attend court hearing next month but he refused to receive delivery of the notice, according to  lawyer Cassim Chidothe who is representing Maranatha.

Chidothe said he recorded that he served Mpinganjira the court notice and that he is aware of the matter “whether he signs or not.”

Judiciary spokesman Mlenga Mvula confirmed that the matter is coming in court  next month for inter-partes hearing for committal to prison.

The organization CEO is an overall incharge of all operations of the organization. He advises or supports every organization department unless otherwise. He is never spared from getting affected by a departmental inefficiecies. He is behind major decisions affecting organization operations. His timely decision can prevent predicaments of an organization. Of course zikavuta, unfortunately pamakhala kuloza ena dzala. Unlike when success is registered

MBAVA ZOKHA ZOKHA IZI.
MARANATHA STAYED IN KEZA WITHOUT PAYING RENT FOR A LONG TIME. WHEN THE OWNER WANTED HIS MONEY, HE WOULD RUSH TO THE COURT. HE LEFT WITHOUT PAYING. HE IS A THIEF.
MPINGANJIRA STOLE MSB FROM THE PUBLIC. THIEF.
SO ATAMBWALI AKUMANA OKHAOKHA. IFE ZISATIKHUDZE.

No way! You can not commit an offense, rush to a Malawian court and get no apprehension. No! Don’t mislead people here. Malawian courts could not get that far if they could. Initially no one is above the law . That’s why even top government officials or millionaires face the justice administered by our courts. Hope you are aware of recent judicial effects on some high ranking individuals. So the attitude of taking Malawian courts forgranted might lead you to regretting it the way it is happening to someone right now. Facts please other than mare allegations and speculations.

You can’t commit an offense then rush to court without facing just even when Malawian could be highly corrupt. Comments here could not mislead

After theft, rushing court for protection? No you’ve missed some points. Or else you mean courts are to blame, can’t function? Now if courts don’t function then, how could we realize thieves as we have all innocent until proven guilty? I think a malawian court of law can make more sense that you who just go around speculating. Facts please!

Why is FDH behaving suspiciously? In suspicious circumstances they bought our Malawi Savings Bank and now they are in for contempt of court? Very sad I hope rules of natural justice will apply. Amnd why refusing to sign the served summons? Kuopa chani? Zikutitopetsa kumamva nkhani zosakhla bwino kuchokera bank imodzzi imodzi

Something smells on this issue. Mpinganjira is not FDH Bank as per the Salomon Vs Salomon 1897 Binding Precent. Refusing to sign court orders is not contempt unless one defies subpoena and fails to attend the court. I am not sure how Civil Matter would require CEO to be there if Judgement was already meted out by High Court as FDH Bank Ltd appealed. Any way lot of details are missing and haters are just taking podium without trying to understand what is here. Most Tumbukas hate Mpinganjira yet he employees them lot. Tiwonge Khonje, Sitabene Malange, Soubuza Ngwenya, Mbachwaza… Read more »

Chikopa, Don’t talk of closing Adventist hospitals on Sabbath. Even Jesus healed a sick person on Sabbath. The only departments that are closed on Sabbaths are the offices, OPD, Cashier, Pharmacy & others. Labs only open on emergencies but wards are always open to attend to the sick as patients are always there on Sabbath & attend to emergencies. It’s not about money but saving lives
