JB, Justice Minister Fahad Assani Differ On ‘Jailing’ Peter Mutharika And His 11 Disciples
Minister of Justice Fahad Assani has angered President Joyce Banda after he openly told her that jailing the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leader Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika and his eleven disciples may bring disorder in the country.
President Banda invited Assani at the State House where she advised him to speed up treason case involving the DPP president and eleven others so that they should get jailed as DPP is giving her sleepless nights especially with its grassroots support from across the country.
However, during the meeting, Assani advised Joyce Banda that the case in question is now complicated because of Ralph Kasambara who is now in opposition camp taking consideration that he was the person who started the case saying even jailing the DPP gurus will turn the country into a ‘political crisis’ especially at this time when the country is heading towards 2014 polls.
According to the source, this did not please President Banda who even called the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Bruno Kalemba right there to ensure that notwithstanding the civil servants holiday which started on Monday December 16, the treason case should still take place tomorrow Wednesday December 18 at the Lilongwe High Court.
