Mulli gags Kajoloweka: Stop public comments on K8bn claim, court orders activist

The High Court has has ordered Youth and Society (YAS) executive director Charles Kajoloweka to stop commenting on  business magnate Leston Ted Mulli’s  K8 billion interests  calim from government, the matter which is before the court.

Mulli: Gets injunction

Mulli rushed to court to seek an order to stop Kajoloweka from commenting on the matter after he  issued a  statement questioning the businessman’s claim following the July 20 2011 protests which damaged Mulli’s companies—Sunrise Pharmaceuticals and Chombe Foods.

Following events of July 20, 2011, the two companies sued government for damages due to the destruction of their property during the demonstrations and were awarded damages amounting to K3.1 billion.

However, Mulli is now allegedly seeking to be paid an additional K8 billion in interests on the initial amount already paid.

Kajoloweka had demanded  that Malawians deserve full disclosure on how this case has been handled.

However, the court documents seen by Nyasa Times,  an injunction was granted to Mulli which restrains Kajoloweka and YAS  from commenting  “in whatever manner” in relation to the on going claims in High Court of Malawi Principal Registry civil cause number  747 of 2012, pending determination of the matter by the court.

The court warns Kajoloweka and his organisationoOn the consequences of their public utterances touching on the case which, they warned, undermined the court’s authority.

It further said failure to obey the order  will result in contempt of court which may lead to imprisonment.

The office of the Attorney General said it is challenging the K8 billion claim from Mulli.According to State advocate Neverson Chisiza, the State was challenging the claim as it had already settled about K3.1 billion in claims over the same case and that the case was old—having last been heard in court in 2013—and was finding it difficult to accept why it was being resuscitated.

Some so called “business tycoons” are actually just thieves and conmen masquerading as businessmen. The taxpayer paid for Mullis NBS loan, and for the “damages” to his business during the 2011 demos. Both payments were in billions of Kwachas. Now he wants more and he does not want anyone to comment about it? Wow….mbwiya mwafikapo! Koma 2012 kufika 2014 simunaphunzirepo kanthu? Dziko limasinthatu!!!

Dpp corruption and all its nakedness being displayed. Mulli can only get such courage and encouragement only from dpp gurus including the one sitting at the mountain top.

What a government?? All eyes will be on the judiciary, this is an obvious case even by a lay person, which Mulli should lose. If he succeeds, then our judiciary will be a laughing stock of the world where corruption succeeds all the time.

How about these other people like Dean Lungu who are also claiming for interests just like Mulli? Are they justified for making such claims while Mulli, due to where he comes from, does not have the same right to make the same claim? Kajoloweka and your Tumbuka team please stop hating your fellow human beings based merely on where they come from or their region or there tribe. Why you Kajoloweka are you not talking about the LUNGUs of this world but Mulli? This is a good time for Tumbukas to stop their genetic nepotism, regionalism, tribalism, and all the… Read more »

It is very disheartening how these guys want to siphon government resources using the very institutions which are supposed to safe guard law and justice. Which property was valued at 3. 1 billion Kwacha and who did the valuations? Is it government which is supposed to pay this madness? Where are the insurance institutions?

This is stealing at highest order and it clear shows that something is wrong with our country and leadership.
