Judge orders interparte hearing on Mpinganjira midnight  release

A High Court judge has ordered that interparte hearing, hearing for both parties in the case, on the midnight cancellation of business tycoon Thomson Mpinganjira’s warrant of arrest cancellation be heard Monday afternoon.

Registrar of the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal and the High Court of Malawi Agnes Patemba: interact hearing

Judge Dorothy Nyakaunda Kamanga has ordered the hearing be heard at 2pm  at the High Court in Blantyre.

Mpinganjira is facing charges of attempting to bribe Constitutional Court judges hearing the presidential election case.

Judiciary spokesperson Agness Patemba said this has been necessitated by some grey areas where the judge wants cleared by the lawyers of the parties involved.

Patemba disclosed that the delays experienced in-between in attending to the matter was occasioned by the fact that the judge in question was also attending to the Masambuka murder case whose dates had already been scheduled.

Those who are against quota for judges are northerners. Judges are not gods, the judgements they write are clouded by their experiences, beliefs and values. For example, it is highly unlikely a born again judge would rule to legalise prostitution. In the same vein, it is unlikely that a northerner judge would be fair to Mr Mpinganjira, given how much northerners hate lomwes.

Here we go again……the Judiciary is backing the rich………this ‘case’ of reviewing an erroneous cancellation of a warrant of arrest should not take even an hour to a COMPETENT, UNINTERFERED WITH, INCORRUPT JUDGE…..even a Court Clerk can mark and handle this…….do not take us as fools…we know what is happening……we are watching you…do not make a mistake on the next BIG THING……and provoke the citizenry’s anger please….

For your information; John Kamanga is a very good friend of mpinganjira. Brother to John stole billions of Kwachas at Carlsberg and ran away to London and same Judge called him back and he home and dry.

When something is the process of rotting, what are the chances of stopping or slowing down the process of rot? Fermentation is normally a process that requires a reasonably long period of time. Now that the public is aware that there is highly likely both processes of judicial rot and fermentation, what next? Can these processes be stopped in time before fermentation occurs or has judicial fermentation occurred already. Most intoxicating liquor (drinks) go through a fermentation process and the longer the process the stronger the intoxicating effect of the liquor. It is fair to say that when intoxication has… Read more »

Registrar Agnes Patemba should stop fooling us. For considering that the matter of the cancellation of the Arrest Warrant of Dr Mpingagira by a Magistrate is a matter of national importance and national security repeat national importance and national security the Judge should have made time for a hearing on the very day even if this was in Judges Chamber. The Registrar’s excuses show the whole judiciary in bad light. In fact the Judges and Magistrates are busy destroying their reputation as impartial and uncorrupt.
The judiciary now is perceived by many Malawians as highly corrupt.

Was the original warrant of arrest issued by Lilongwe magistrate defective? What if the zomba judge was simply correcting an error by Lilongwe judge? Some people rushed to demonize chitsakamire but maybe his actions are not easy to undo. Malawi elections part 2, ma judge vs ma judge anzawo. Long live democracy!!!!!

Even if it was defective, logically and according to the law, it could only be cancelled by the originating magistrate on account that it was defective.

Am thinking if the original warrant was defective then it was also null and void at the time of issuing hence cannot be used to make an arrest. Thom was free to go

Dont complicate things here……..what does the Law say regarding defective warrant of arrests? It is supposed to be referred back to the one who issued it for correction or withdrawal…therefore, this does not give any magistrate in this context to nullfy and withdraw it…..he was supposed to tell those seeking midnight legal help to go back to the originator of the warrant of arrest ….. The Police is cant escape their stinky and suspicious behaviour here…….if the original warrant of arrest was defective, they were supposed to detect it before using it….in the same vein, the warrant of arrest withdrawal… Read more »

English is hard to understand i’m guessing later on law ” it could “ONLY” be cancelled by the originating magistrate on account that it was defective. i.e BAN, lift the BAN on what ground? ‘error’
