Mutharika’s Ex-Private Bodyguard Norman Chisale Ordered to Pay MK10 Million for Assault


The High Court in Lilongwe has ordered former president Peter Mutharika’s personal bodyguard, Norman Chisale, to pay Dingani Soko K10 million for assaulting him on November 22, 2018.

An order on assessment of damages by Assistant Registrar Brian Sambo that Nation Online has seen shows that Chisale has been given 14 days to pay the amount from Tuesday, May 10, 2022 when the order was made.

Chisale was found guilty on February 24, 2022 by High Court Judge William Msiska for assaulting Soko in 2018 when they had a misunderstanding at the roundabout which connects Mzimba and Paul Kagame Highway in Lilongwe.

Meanwhile, Chisale’s lawyer Chancy Gondwe says he has received instructions from his client to appeal the matter.
