(Patients and guardians from referral and district hospitals want the Ministry of Health and Department of Human Resources officers fired for incompetence) Court clerk: My Lord, these patients and guardians have been camping here since last week. They did not know that you could not hear any case that week because you were on vacation.…

The People Against Confusion (PAC), the grouping promoting peaceful co-existence in this country, brought this matter before the tribunal against the conduct of Mapuya and Tally-Star Chazizira, who were related through the marriage of Chazizira to Mapuya’s late brother, Chitsulo Chanjanji. Traditionally, the in-law status between the two was abrogated after chief Ngalangalawa led in…

Dear judge Mbadwa, I was surprised that your court is no longer dispensing injunctions as if it were some aspirin meant to provide relief for some legal headaches. It has suddenly gone quiet on the injunctions front and the people who rushed to your chamber on every flimsy case to seek relief have now got…

Dear Judge Mbadwa, When I wrote you about general thieving tendencies, you promised to reply, but because of your silence, I will repeat what I told you about since the theft has spread far and wide. Water and power is being stolen like nobody’s business. You can’t just have potable water in homes and power…

Dear judge Mbadwa, When I refused to be intoxicated with excitement over the commissioning of the diesel generators, with its false promise of adding 55 megawatts to the national grid, I was labelled unpatriotic, especially from the blue-half of the political spectrum. Now that the fuel guzzlers are scarcely humming and the duration of being…

Dear Justice Mbadwa, I, Clement Katanya, chairperson of the transparency and accountability committee in my village Makobola, has been compelled to write you after hearing that our President was left embarrassed after some of his party members washed the party’s dirty linen in public. Honourable Mbadwa,  I remember at the onset of  your tribunals, you…

Dear Judge Mbadwa, You might have heard already that the virus of negative intra-party democracy reared its ugly head in the Capital during Mapuya’s address of Parliament as he opened his last budget session before elections. My Lord, those who were laughing at bickering in Alliance for Dissent and Disputes (Afford) and Lazaro’s party, didn’t…

Dear judge Mbadwa, I, Tchale Mchocho, want to categorically defend my right to express a contrary opinion. My Lord, what I did last Thursday by organising a few members of my People’s Demagogic Party (PDP) was in essence showing the public how democratic the PDP party is. People have to understand that everyone in the…

    The Carabao Cup and Premier League trophy for the 2018 season have already found their place on the shelves of Etihad Stadium at Manchester City. The rest of the clubs have to fight for the FA Cup while Liverpool still have a shot at the Champions League trophy. This is what makes this…

Dear judge Mbadwa, My Lord, you might have watched us memorising another  ‘midnight six’ debacle through a spate of press conferences by bonafide members of People’s Demagogic Party (PDP),  Friends of Mapuya, the party’s women’s league and the representatives of the politburo. For sure, we were not cartooning ourselves through those hastily arranged press conferences…

  The Malawi national netball team, the Queens, heavy  loss to New Zealand in a warm up match for the Commonwealth Games was the 11th consecutive defeat, the longest run of losses for the nation’s  beloved international soap-opera sports team. But if I said I was surprised with the run of bad results, I would…
