Mulli gags Chilima, UTM top brass

Business magnate Leston Mulli and his two companies—Sunrise Pharmaceuticals and Chombe Foods Limited—have obtained an injunction against Vice-President Saulos Chilima and the entire United Transformation Movement (UTM), restraining him from commenting on the companies’ K8 billion claim case against government.

Mulli: UTM are busy talking about me

The court order cites Saulos Chilima as first defendant, UTM Secretary General Patricia Kaliati as second defendant, Louis Ngalande as third defendant, Noel Masangwi as fourth defendant and the entire UTM as fifth defendants.

“This order restrains you either by yourselves, your servants, members or agents whosoever from making any publication on social media, the radio, television, press releases or in whatsoever manner concerning the 1st claimant, the judiciary and the Attorney General in connection with the claims by the 2nd ad 3rd claimants in the High Court of Malawi,” reads the order, dated October 3 2018, in part.

Mulli also gagged rights activist Charles Kajoloweka and of\Youth and Society (YAS), an organisation he leads from commenting on the matter.

The injunction obtained at the Blantyre Registry of the High Court followed a war of words between Mulli and Kajoloweka, with the latter earlier writing Kajoloweka through Churchill and Norris Law Consultants, demanding a retraction and withdrawal of his statements to the effect that his K8 billion claim from government is another organised malfeasance to defraud Capital Hill.

Mulli, through Sunrise Pharmaceuticals Limited and Chombe Foods Limited, sued government and claimed K3.1 billion as damages for losses during the July 2011 demonstrations in which 21 people were killed in Mzuzu, Blantyre and Lilongwe.

He is now seeking an additional K8 billion.

Mulli’s claim is being heard at the High Court in Blantyre.

Now this is social media. Nothing stops us from discussing this issue. Mulli umbavha wachuruka. Kodi mose muja munayambila kumba ndalama zaboma simuna khutile? Kodi ndalama zomwe munaba through National Bus Company which you ran underground simunakhutilebe? You are very evil you should be shameful of yourself stealing in broad daylight ngati imeneyo. Gagging UTM et al is not going to work. You are simply trying to raid government funds and Malawians are watching you.

nafeso amalawi moti tilimbane ndi boma popeleka madandaulo athu tikulimbana ndi chuma cha anzanthu. The laws of this country allows someone to claim from government to pay for damages caused by fellow citizens using tax money. remember he has the right. next time let us avoid attacking personal property when demonstating otherwise I see more money being paid ife tikaononga

Most of us saw this coming: Mr Mulli has every right to claim for the damages, including intrinsic damages, arising from the savage demonstrations.
And he also has cause for getting legal restraint against UTM (the Bus Company) officials, and even Kajoloweka. That is how the Law works in a democracy.
Asa.

In Malawi, those who prosper are always suspected as long as he/she is a native.If you are Chines or Indian No problems. This spirit is in all Malawian despite whatever status he is. Surely ,Chilima and Jolokamo support Mob death ,attacks and destruction of both property and lives of people.If business is all about conducive environment why should these knowledgeable citizen be against the step the fellow citizen takes to protect and teach this government about its responsibilty. Parliament has been very quiet on Mob. People are still loosing lives property , Mulli Teach these Politicians to stop Making nonsense… Read more »
