Everton Chimulirenji seeks court protection

Everton Chimulirenji

Former Minister of Disaster Management Affairs Everton Chimulirenji has applied for an injunction restraining businessman Matias Bonongwe or his agents from visiting his residence.

The court order also restrains Bonongwe from making defamatory statements against Chimulirenji.

The High Court is expected to hear the application on August 25.


In written affidavits that we have seen, Chimulirenji denies instructing Bonongwe through Azit International Limited to supply maize to Agriculture Development and Marketing Corporation.

The former Cabinet minister—who partnered Peter Mutharika during the 2019 presidential election which was later nullified by the courts—has made the application through his lawyer Taulo and Associates restraining Bonongwe from impounding his property.

This comes as the debt battle between the politician, whose vice-presidency was invalidated, and Bonongwe continues to rage.


Last week, debt collectors acting on behalf of Bonongwe invaded Chimulirenji residence at Chinsapo in Lilongwe to impound property worth K100 million as claims for loss of business.

Bonongwe alleges that he lost business due to the former minister’s negligence, incompetence and abuse of office.

Meanwhile, Judge Kenyatta has set August 25 as the date for hearing of the application
