German belittles Malawi? Invites Chaponda as a minister


Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development Dr. George Chaponda is still executing his duties as Minister despite the High Court in Mzuzu suspending him as Minister to pave way for smooth investigation into the controversial maize saga involving Malawi and Zambia.

Meeting he is attending in his capacity as minister of agriculture and water irrigation. There is a shire basin meeting.

Is the Court order being respected?

Why is German Ambassador allowing a Null and Void member to enter their country as a minister later to get out?

“We are happy to announce that the Hon. Minister of Agriculture will be in Germany after all. Since he is only arriving tomorrow morning we have to push the meeting to 10.30am until 12.30pm, tomorrow Friday, January 20th at our office at Friedrichstraße 206, 10969 Berlin,” Ms Khadi Camara celebrating Chapondas coming.

As per Afriem investigations, Chaponda left Malawi yesterday in the afternoon via the Kamuzu Internation Airport and arrived in Germany this morning.

In Germany, before the Rrival of Chaponda, Ms Khad Camara who heads Afrikaverein, the institution that held a round table discussion with Chaponda sent the below email to members of the institution:

“Meeting with Malawi’s Minister of Agriculture.

“Particpants of the Round Table Malawi.

“We are happy to announce that the Hon. Minister of Agriculture Geoge Chaponda will be in Germany after all.

“Since he is only arriving tomorrow morning we have to push the meeting to 10.30am until 12.30pm, tomorrow Friday, January 20th at our office at Friedrichstraße 206, 10969 Berlin.

    the court has no powers to suspend a minister.separation of powers and moreover get it correct minister is not being investigated for any wrong doing either by the police or by ant coruption bureu but there are enquries going on anf if the recommendation will provide for an investigation then the law firms,the police or ACB will act after an authoritity from the head of state.the court are supposed to leave the excutive alone.we dont want politically motivated courts in our country. a court suspending a minister ? what that ?

      By the way where on earth does one asked not to work by courts and not the employer? Is Chaponda’s case constitutional? I hope not. Yes he is a public servant therefore equally liable for prosecution and investigations like any Malawian. But for anyone to stop him from working and not his employers not even Disciplinary Committee or or indeed Government set public laws governing employment is not only outrageous but also strange. Minister of Agriculture is separate from Admarc corporation. Sometimes these things need to be clarified. Yes he is suspected to be wrong, but natural justice need not to be overlooked. Chaponda ndi munthu ngati ife.

      It’s a court decision that has to be respected,if one isn’t comfortable with a court decision has the right to appeal in an upper court than defying the court ruling simply because you’re on the helm.These guys have the blood of adamancy.And the reason is very simple,they’re not there the time we’re fighting for this democracy they’re abusing.They won’t fool us all the time,one day they gonna face the music.

      …and the time is now. I just don’t like the way the whole issue is being handled. Its very easy for this issue to be crookedly manipulated and twist justice only to see Chaponda cleared of any wrong doing in the end. Trust me. This world is not as it were under Kamuzu. People can do anything for money. Look for example, how many individual groups are investigating this issue? Remember “Too many cooks” what they do? Are all these doing for you and me or for their living? They are fattening their pockets in the pretext of hunting Chaponda. That is what Malawians are good at, “If they swindle, we swindle too” kind of scenario. We can not blame them!!

It’s unfortunate that umampala of selected individuals affect innocent Malawians.

    What Chaponda did is Good for his ministry as far as there no minister of Agriculture yet.

    For Court order is not for the rich and those in power but for the poor and low minded respect.

    It’s only the president who can hire and fire ministers any not stupid political CSOs who are sympathetic to failed politicians.
