The injunction stated particularly against HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo, his vice Gift Trapence and other HRDC members from issuing the report dated 5 June 2019 in which they allege that Dr. Mpinganjira financed the 21 May 2019 election rigging plot.

In press statement dated July 14, 2019, the bank said that the injunction was not meant to stop HRDC from organizing demonstrations.

“Therefore, wishes to advise the public that FDH bank remains committed to serving Malawians professionally while adhering to the rules set by the regulator of financial institutions in the country, Reserve Bank Of Malawi (RBM),” reads the statement in part.
