One of the social commentators and a government critic Joshua Chisa Mbele has apologized to Nick Chakwera, son to President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera as ordered by the Court.

Nick dragged to court Chisa Mbele over a defamatory facebook posts.

On 17th April,2021, Mbele is alleged to have made false remarks that Martin Mainja one of the suspects in the abuse of Covid-19 funds is a business partner of Chakwera.

Mbele also alleged that Mainja and Chakwera were irregularly awarded business opportunities by the Office of the President, Cabinet Parliament, Chancellor College, Malawi Prison and Ministry of Health.

He also alleged that the two were not fairly paid for their work but they were stealing.

The post did not go down well with Chakwera’s son who sued Chisa Mbele for defamation and yesterday the court ordered him to apologize.

Chisa Mbele wrote after the court order;

In the spirit of peace and harmony Mr Joshua Chisa Mbele has followed the court order has made the below statement.

Court Order

I have seen the attached Court Order from the Social Media in which I’m requested to apologize & retract the purported defamatory statement attributed to me on my Facebook Page.

Without further ado; I state as follows:

1 ~ I hereby unreservedly & unconditionally apologize to Mr Nick Chakwera. The defamatory statement was erroneously attributed to me, I nevertheless issue the apology not withstanding the circumstances.
Mr Nick Chakwera is an upright, honest person with spotless character. He is an exemplary citizen. I sincerely apologize for the pain & anguish the said Facebook Status and or Subsequent Comments might have caused.

2~ The said Facebook Status was immediately deleted and same apology was issued instead.

Mr Mbele is a Man of God. Where I have erred, I withdraw & apologize. I do recognize that I’m never above common social status and or any applicable law.

I will in due course, publish such apologies in both The Nation & Times Newspapers as per Court Order.
