Judicial Review against Mandatory Covid-19 vaccination is baseless – AG

There is nothing unconstitutional about asking people to be vaccinated as the Republican constitution only bars forced medical experiments or trials and not vaccinations, the government’s chief legal advisor has said.

Action-oriented Malawi’s Attorney General (AG) Thabo Chakaka Nyirenda has described the application for permission of judicial review and an injunction stopping government from implementing Mandatory Covid-19 vaccination to some groups of people as baseless and frivolous.

Attorney General Thabo Chakaka Nyirenda

Chakaka Nyirenda’s statement comes hot on the wheels following Center for Democracy and Economic Development Initiative (CDEDI) and a freelance journalist Mundango Nyirenda have jointly applied to the court for an injunction seeking to restrain the Office of the Attorney General and Parliament from implementing the mandatory Covid-19 vaccination on their employees.

Speaking in an interview with Nyasa Times, the Attorney General said CDEDI and the journalist have sued wrong parties as the office of the Attorney General and parliament have never made a decision for mandatory Covid-19 vaccination.

The Attorney General also said the Ministry of Health is an improper party to the case as no decision has been made and implemented yet arguing that there are only plans to introduce mandatory vaccination in January.

Nyirenda said the law provides that one does not commence proceedings on future events but one can only commence proceedings on things which have happened and have caused a injury arguing CDEDI has not suffered any injury yet.

Further, the Attorney General said there is nothing unconstitutional about vaccination saying the constitution only bars forced medical experiments or trial saying that vaccination is not a medical experiment or trial.

Further, Nyirenda explained that the constitution does not talk about vaccination.

The Attorney General has said human rights have corresponding responsibilities insisting that there is no human right that is superior to the other.

Said Chakaka Nyirenda: “There is evidence that the vaccinated stands a less chance of infecting others and getting infected.

“If one says that he or she has a right not to be forced to receive the vaccine – he or she has also a right and a responsibility to safeguard others and therefore not to infect another person with a virus.”

Since when are the vaccinated started to seek protection from the unvaccinated. Is it not the job of the vaccine to protect all the recipients? One cannot force, coerce or mandate the killer and poisonous covid vaccines to anyone. Just so you know, the more a country gets vaccinated with these snake oils, the higher the covid cases and deaths. In the near future, all of those who are getting jabbed with these experimental covid vaccines will have all sorts of medical complications. Blood clots, cancers, strokes and ailments which we never had before. This is depopulation agenda and Africans… Read more »

The point here is that whether vaccinated or not,

  1. Utha kutenga Covid-19
  2. Utha kumupasiranso nzako oti anabaitsa or sanabaitse

Ndiye sitikuona kusiyana kwake and why are we about to be forced ngakhale mwayamba kale kuwapanga force anthu eg. Why unvaccinated MPs were barred from entering paliament building? this simply means that you have effected mandatory vaccination and mwayamba ndi ma MP koma simukunena ai.

Bwana AG polani moto ife tikuti NO to forced Vaccination
Muli chani mu vaccine. I remember Magulfuli now.

Vaccine are still on experimental stage, if the constitution bars such medication then it is clear and obvious that vaccine should or must not be re-enforced in the republic.

Evidence

  1. Vaccine not able to cure covid 19 –
  2. Stage 2 of booster experiment being rolled on
  3. People fully vaccinated getting covid 19 cases are high hence introduction of combined vaccine experiment

Contradiction. If the vaccinated are less likely to be infected. Then why forcing the unvaccinated to be vaccinated? They have chosen to be infected or follow other preventive procedures. And further more the intake or vaccine is forced medicine against medical ethics.

CDEDI and journalist Mundango Nyirenda must be feeling embarrassed and stupid that they have been made aware that they are suing wrong people and are also ignorant about our country’s laws! In trying to be champions of human rights they have also been reminded that when fighting for their ‘rights’ people should also be mindful of upholding other people’s rights! Shame on you CDEDI and ‘journalist’ Mundango Nyirenda.

AG show me medical evidence that people who are double jabbed are boolet proof of not getting corona virus again let alone spreading it to other people. The fact of the matter is that those who are vaccinated are still be infected by corona virus and spreading it to fellow vaccinated and non vaccinated people. Stop discriminating people who are not vaccinated. Both vaccinated and non vaccinated people are being infected by corona virus and both of them are spreading it to other people. So why are you picking on Non vaccinsted people?? Stop discriminsting non vaccinsted people! Vaccination is… Read more »
