Judiciary hires new Supreme Court, High Court registrar

Judiciary has appointed a new registrar for the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal and the High Court. She is Gladys Gondwe, formerly chief resident magistrate for Mzuzu.

Agnes Patemba was elevated from Registrar of the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal and the High Court of Malawi  to a Judge

Gondwe replaces Agness Patemba who was appointed as a judge for the High Court.

The new Registrar, Gondwe recently  handled musician Fredokis’ election process meddling case.

Meanwhile, some lawyers in the north have expressed concern over the Judiciary decision to allocate two judges at the High Court in Mzuzu out of 11 President Lazarus Chakwera appointed recently.

One of the lawyers, Wesley Mwafulirwa said there is a back log of cases in the north, forcing the Court to refer some of the cases to Lilongwe.

Blantyre High Court has got four new judges, Lilongwe has three, and Mzuzu and Zomba have two each.

But northerners always complaining why? Mufuna onse apite ku mpoto? Zonse zizingokhala zanu.

Alamu Pumani Mwakalamba

The Industrial Relations Court is almost dead now. Most of the cases have stalled. What is the Ministry of Justice or the Chief Justice doing about it? People die without getting justice on what the employers did to them. Why don’t you just remove the useless court completely rather than make people wait for more than 10 years to get justice?
