Malawi Minister Complying With Court Order

Written by  Written By Timothy KATETA Jan 19, 2017

Capital FM investigations can reveal that the Agriculture minister George Chaponda appears to be complying with court’s decision by not reporting for duties.

The High Court ordered him to stop discharging his duties as Cabinet Minister until investigations into how ADMARC procured maize from Zambia were completed.

There were allegations that despite the court’s order, Chaponda has been executing his official duties as a cabinet minister.

He was spotted sitting among other cabinet ministers on January 15 during Chilembwe day commemorations in Chiradzulu district.

This heightened fears among the public that he was still executing his duties despite the court order.

Also earlier this week, state controlled MBC also recognized him as Agriculture Minister when he presided over the handover ceremony of boreholes in his constituency.

These developments attracted comment on social media with legal commentators warning that Chaponda would be in contempt of court if he continued discharging his duties.

When Capital FM’s Trust Ofesi visited the Ministry of Agriculture in Lilongwe, it was clear that Chaponda did not report for duty.

Officials at the ministry they confirmed the observation, pointing out the minister had not reported for duty for a couple of days.


The ADMARC maize scandal has aroused anger and disappointment from the public who feel that those in power are taking them for granted by not being transparent in various transactions.
