President Peter Mutharika has been asked by the Malawi Law Society to help in speedily resolving the spate of strikes which are paralysing public and justice delivery services in the country.

The appeal was made by Law Society’s executive committee members  when  they met the Head of State, in camera, on Wednesday for over an hour at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe.

The MLS Secretary Felisah Kilembe  who briefed journalists in the company of Attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale  said her delegation made its position of concerns clearly to the President and his government.

She, however, expressed the hope that the judiciary impasse would be resolved.

“We are very hopeful that this issue will be resolved very soon,” said Kilembe.

Kilembe said they were convinced that the Mutharika administration is working “very hard to resolve the strikes.”

She also said the lawyers pressed for property-tracing approach for the Cashgate culprits.

“We would like government to have an expert for tracing stolen property who must trace the property connected to cashgate and recover it,” she said,

The lawyers, Kilembe said, want government to ensure that all  culprits involved in the  plunder of  over K20 billion from the public coffers -Cashgate Scandal – should face justice and not delayed.

On his part, Kaphale said the meeting was crucial because it was the first time the lawyer’s body  was meeting President Mutharika  – a law professor – since his entry into office in May this year

Mutharika has been meeting members of different professional bodies and recently hosted journalists to a party and cash handouts which critics claimed was a “bribe.”
