Malawi Law Society tells Mutharika to use executive powers to end political impasse

Malawi Law Society (MLS) has advised President Peter Mutharika to use his executive powers to end the current political impasse.

Burton Mhango: President of Malawi Law Society: Tips Mutharika to end post-May political quagmire

In a statement, MLS says Mutharika should prioritise to end the impasse in the interest of national unity.

MLS also advises the Head of State not to be moved by regional politics.

The lawyers’ body also advises the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and UTM to react to national events in the interest of the nation not to earn political mileage.

The Malawi Law Society wrote all political parties in the country to settle for peace in the aftermath of the highly disputed May 21 elections.

The law body asked  President Mutharika of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), the country’s immediate past vice-president Saulos Chilima now heading UTM Party and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera to prepare their supporters for both negative and positive outcomes from the case.

Feeling sorry for Malawi, people who claim to be educated in the field of law but acting like a pupil, how can a well educated lawyer advice the disputed president [of which the case is still in court for him] to use executive powers. Its just by mercy of law that he is in state house. had it were in other country he wouldn’t be in state house until the completion of the court case. Our country is full of educated salvages who only see politics as a clear road to success.

The High court must remove MLS from the constitution court for it is being partisan. APM is a lawyer himself and understand the concept of “consensus ad idem” which simply means meeting of mind. Zisankho sizinali credible izi ndiyene wina mkumati wina ali ndi ma executive powers it is not on. APM has forced his will on Malawians a people he does not know. If Malawi is going astray it is because of people like Mhango who only look down to their stomach and to feather their nest. Let us put Malawi first mavoti akhale oona mtima.

“MLS advised the president not to be moved by regional politics” Is it not the president himself who is the head of regional politics? is there any party more regionalistic than the DPP?

Political impasses cannot end by one using executive powers. it can only end when people can and reason together just like God did in the book of Prophet Isaiah 1:18 RSV. God said “COME LET US REASON TOGETHER” Even though he is God, He did not use his godly powers, but invited His own creation to reason with him. Why should Mutharika use executive powers which among other things is to veto legislation, to command the armed forces etc. Mutharika should reach out to his opponents and say “COME LET US REASON TOGETHER”

Is this advice coming from MLS as an organisation or the President of MLS who is a Mhango as an interested person? Mhango you are the worst president MLS has ever had and you need to resign! This whole advice is to make APM justifies when he resorts to executive powers like Trump. But alas in Malawi no one especially under the current circumstances will obey any such nonsense except for those who are stupid DPP including you Mhango! A foolish Mhango who loves money so much that he has even sold his folks from the North to APM! Advise… Read more »

MLS is also degenerating into useless organization just like the Police. People will have no trust in this useless organization and we will have no respect for any lawyer. We did not know Kaphale that is so stupid. He with MEC forge documents that he submits to ConCourt. Image of all the lawyers in the country Kaphale doing this. He destroyed all original documents, documents have been tippexed and not signed for and all other lies. Which President should use executive powers. Illegitimate President does not have such powers. In fact it pains us when APM appoints cabinet and do… Read more »
