Chizuma’s drama takes new twists, govt hires three lawyers to challenge her reinstatement


The Tonse Alliance government has filed an urgent application before the High Court in Blantyre to vacate an order the court issued earlier to restore Martha Chizuma as Anti-Corruption Bureau Director General.

The court on Monday lifted Chizuma’s suspension following a stand taken by the Malawi Law Society demanding a judicial review on the matter.

According to court documents seen by this publication, Attorney General (AG) Thabo Chakaka-Nyirenda has hired former AG Kalekeni Kaphale, Chancy Gondwe and George Jivason Kadzipatike to represent police prosecutor in the Chizuma case, Levison Mangani, the Lilongwe Chief Resident Magistrate and Secretary to the President and Cabinet (SPC) Colleen Zamba.

Gondwe confirmed his hiring and the filing of the urgent application to vacate the order issued earlier on Monday that effectively stopped Chizuma from appearing before the magistrate court in Lilongwe tomorrow, February 8, 2023 and also allowing her to return to her duties.

Gondwe is representing the SPC, Kaphale the Lilongwe Chief Resident Magistrate while Kadzipatike is representing Mangani.
