Malawi President hire two new High Court judges: N’riva and Ligowe

Malawi President Peter Mutharika has appointed two new High Court judges.

N’riva: Appointed judge

High Court of Malawi and Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal registrar . Jack N’riva has been appointed a High Court judge as has Thomson Ligowe, the former  Blantyre chief resident magistrate who until his appointment was deputy registrar of the High Court.

In a statement made available to Nyasa Times on Monday, the Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) said the appointments are with effect from June  29 2017.

In recent times, there have been concerns among court users that justice delivery, especially in the High Court, has been slow. The Judiciary and observers attributed the delay to a shortage of judges.

Great for the appointments. What about district magistrates. In some districts like Nkhotakota justice delivery has been compromised heavily. Mr President please level the fields

Why are Lomwe people always given high positions? Honestly does this mean these people are super competent in what they do, or this is nepotism at work in Malawi?

that’s not true – in fact, its a myopic observation. Tom Ligowe is not Lomwe but a hot-blooded Ngoni from Ntcheu.
