FDH Bank Lawyers Warn Chakwera, Chilima And HRDC

Chakwera, Chilima: Warned

Lawyers for FDH Bank have warned Lazarus Chakwera, Saulos Chilima and HRDC against continued scandalizing of the bank and damaging its property.

Chakwera, Chilima and HRDC have made the bank a target of attacks during the demonstrations related to the elections. They have damaged the bank’s Lilongwe Branch twice within the past three weeks.

But the attacks against the bank by Chakwera, Chilima and their CSOs have heightened in the past week following a misinformed story which The Daily Times published about Treasury’s payment of K4 billion into a MEC CEO account domiciled at FDH Bank.

There is nothing illegal about the account but Times published the story to insinuate that there were some underhand dealings.

Most importantly the story promoted the false narrative by Chilima, Chakwera and HRDC that MEC officials were bribed to twist election figures in favour of President Peter Mutharika.

At the breaking of the story in which HRDC’s Timothy Mtambo was also quoted attacking MEC and the Government, followers of Chakwera, Chilima and HRDC launched vicious attacks at FDH Bank on social media.

They generated and mass circulated on graphics of FDH Bank with captions that could damage its reputation and hurt its business profile and existence.

In the graphics, they dissuaded existing and potential customers from associating with bank through captions such as ‘Join Us! Close Your Account with FDH Bank’, ‘FDH Bank Must Fall’ and ‘Account Closed’.

Now ahead the demonstrations which the opposition leaders and HRDC have organized this week, FDH Bank’s lawyers have issued a stern warning against further unwarranted attacks of the bank during the demonstrations.

“We are concerned that if the leadership of the HRDC and organizers of the demonstrations do not specifically speak against anti-FDH sentiments that have been published on social media, it is probable that FDH Bank’s physical property and interests may be harmed during the demonstrations,” reads the lawyers’ letter dated 2 July 2019.

The lawyers, Mbendera & Nkhono Associates, also cautioned Chakwera and Chilima directly in the letter.

“We have copied this communication to the leadership of MCP and UTM, out of abundance of caution, and in the expectation that they will seek to enhance the cause of law and order not only with respect to the CSO demonstrations (which MCP and UTM have endorsed)…but also any future demonstrations and activities championed by HRDC and other organizations,” it says.

    chilima is a great shame of our era. the archtect of tribalism. the prince of evil. why launching personnal attacks on other people? should we say power hungry is the driving force? i don’t think so. he is walloped in tribalism and now is dancing to its tune. fdh has become a tảget because the owner is from the south and has roots emerging from the hated tribe. this is the same with jane. this fool is being used. one thing he is forgetting is that we are also human beings who need to be handled with care, we have tempers too. this evil will haunt him not long. if you think i’m joking ask the queen of charity, the cashgate ambassador: she was once haunted by the shadows of vengeance at goliat the thing she wont forget. albashil was once mighty and the very same wings that flew him high caused him crashed. remaimber clowd is fickle and they quickly and easily forget foolish champions who fall to their shame. chilima don’t make a fool of us ifenso timakwiya check your boundaries please! matama pandale siabwiino kunali amnzanu koma mapeto awo anali omvetsa chisoni. we voted not jane alone voted. fighting the will of simple majority is stupidity of the highest level. kufuna kutchuka pazinthu zopusa ndi umbuzi.
