The state through Attorney General, Kalekeni Kaphale has made an appeal against the ruling that Justice Chirwa made yesterday by sustaining the injuction that restrains agriculture minister, George Chaponda from discharging his duties.
In the appeal document, Kaphale says Justice Chirwa errored in sustaining the injunction because the Judiciary has no powers to suspend any minister.
Kaphale further discloses that only the executive has the powers to suspend fire of appoint a minister not the Judiciary.
Kaphale with his legal knowledge believes Chaponda is supposed to be in office as the agriculture minister despite the fact that he is being investigated in the maize scandal.
Yesterday the High Court in Mzuzu sustained a court order restraining suspended Agriculture minister, George Chaponda from executing his ministerial duties.
According to Justice Chirwa Chaponda will remain suspended until the commission of inquiry that was appointed by the President releases results of its findings.
Justice Chirwa said that the matter would go back to court when the results of the inquiry commission are released.
