The High Court in Lilongwe is today expected to hear an application for an injunction in which deposed Vice President Everton Chimulirenji wants businessman, Matias Bonongwe, of Agrizone Trading Company Limited to stop attempts to seize his property.

Among other things, Bonongwe wants Chimulirenji to pay him about K100 million he lost when a deal to supply maize to Admarc, which was allegedly orchestrated by Chimulirenji as Minister of Disaster Management Affairs, was cancelled.

In addition to stopping Bonongwe from grabbing his property, Chimulirenji is also claiming some damages from the businessman for trespassing and character assassination.

Bonongwe’s lawyer, Crispin Kammayani, confirmed in an interview Monday that the matter will come before Justice Kenyatta Nyirenda today.

Two weeks ago, Bonongwe sent debt collectors to Chimulirenji’s residence in Lilongwe’s Chinsapo area to seize some property in an attempt to get back his money.

In his sworn statement, Chimulirenji claims that he together with his family are living in fear as the debt collectors promised to come back.

“I can confirm that from best of my knowledge I have never obtained any money or involved in any business transactions as alleged by the defendant and that is why the defendant has decided to use unlawful means to embarrass me and my family,” reads part of Chimulirenji’s sworn statements.

Chimulirenji was deposed as the country’s vice president on February 3 this year after the Constitutional Court annulled the May 21, 2019 presidential elections on the basis that they were marred with widespread, systematic and grave irregularities.
