Referring to Chimulirenji as Malawi VP is contempt of court – Law professor

A respected law professor has cautioned that following Constitution Court (ConCourt) order on Monday annulling the May 2019 presidential elections results and reverted the presidency to the pre-May 21  status, it will be contempt of court to refer to Everton Chimulirenji as vice-president.

Kamchedzera : It is contempt of court referring to Chimulirenji as vice president

Garton Kamchedzera, a professor of law at Chancellor College, a constituent college of the University of Malawi, said UTM Party president Saulos Chilima is the constitutionally recognised State vice-president as the court order is in effect.

Kamchezera said:  “Following the court ruling Chimulirenji is no longer the Vice-President and if someone still refers to him as the Vice President that is contempt of court.”

Anyone found guilty of contempt of court risk serving three years in jail or paying a fine if convicted.

The law professor said Chimulirenji tenure as vice-president  has been annulled by the ConCourt.

During the news conference in Lilongwe on Wednesday , Chilima said he has not yet had communication with  President Peter Mutharika upon resuming the official duties as the country’s second-in-command.

But presidential spokesman Mgeme Kalilani has since said “there is no reason warranting the President to touch base with him [Chilima].”

He also said Mutharika could not be meeting Chilima.

“Meeting him for what purpose?” he wondered.

Mark Bottomani, the minister of information and a government spokesperson, said he needed to consult on what the decision meant for the government.

Mgeme kalilani a stolen kid….. You denied your real parents for what? Your biological mother looked for you for years and when he found you, what did you do? She told you what happened when your mother gave birth to you and your twin brother. A nurse by that time now a senior member of dpp stole you from your mother and you know this well. And you threw stones at your biological mum because you’re already in a comfort zone. You will remember your mother someday brother

Reality pains, the president is being honest here you don’t dine with your enemy who wants you down.

So don’t force him to pretend, Chilima knows it the president knows it. In short they have agreed to disagree period!!!

Wait until the the Supreme Court of appeal rules in favour of Chilima, then he can be respected as vice president. Malawians can never rely on the judgement from the 5 Efulefu judges because their ruling was such a dull one that even a lay person is able to punch holes in their nusty ruling. All in all, these judges have been failures in all their rulings. Have you forgotten that Ivy Kamanga convicted Kasambara but Mwaungulu trashed it . Kasambara is now free. We cannot rely on these judges not at all. Akagwere uko
