Parliament passes resolution to summon Judicial Service Commission over sale of filling station

Parliament has passed a resolution that the Judicial Service Commission must be summoned and appear before the  Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament over what they said illegal and dubious sale of a filling station.
Rumphi east MP Kamlepo Kalua, who moved the motion on Thursday afternoon, described some judges “Judiciary mafias.”
Kalua also suggested that the Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament should summon the Judge who handled the matter, Justice Ken Manda.
According to Kalua, Judge Manda has to answer some questions.
Kalua said that this is a cartel as Alfred Gangata, the Managing Director of Masters Boreholes Drilling Company, through the same Judge snatched another filling station from another Malawian using similar way.
According to Kalua, Gangata through the same Judge and lawyers also snatched property from another person using similar tricks.
“We do not have problems with the Judiciary, but this Commercial Court that handled this matter,” said Kalua.
Seconding the Motion, Mangochi South West MP Shadric Namalomba said Parliament has powers even to impeach the Judge.
He said People are losing trust in the country’s courts as seen from the recent demonstrations against the Courts.
“For the first time we have seen Malawians demonstrating against judges, this has never happened” said Namalomba.
Earlier, Attorney General Thabo Chakaka-Nyirenda had advised the Speaker of the National Assembly Catherine Gotani Hara not to allow the debate on the matter because the case was in court.
Gelson Mkweza, owner of Gam fuels, whose Kanengo filling station was siezed and sold by Sheriffs obtained a stay order from high court stopping the sale earlier in the day.
This stay order is until judgement in the judicial review case that has been granted.
The order has been issued by High Court Judge Yakuwawa Msiska who further ordered that the sheriffs should release the facility back to Mkweza.
