The High Court in Malawiâ€™s commercial city, Blantyre, on Friday failed to hear why former president Bingu wa Mutharikaâ€™s children want their stepmother, Callista Mutharika, to vacate the opulent Casa Blanca Manor at Ndata Farm in Thyolo.
Callista on Wednesday obtained a court order to protect her from being threatened or evicted from the mansion by Mutharikaâ€™s children.
The former First Lady contends that Casa Blanca Manor is a matrimonial home she helped with building supervision, interior design and decoration.
Lawyer Alfred Majamanda, representing Bineth Trust trustees, which include Mutharikaâ€™s children, told the court that he has not been able to prepare documents in opposition to Callistaâ€™s application.
Majamanda then asked the court to adjourn the matter to allow him prepare the requisite documents.
Callistaâ€™s lawyer, Meyer Chisanga, did not object to the adjournment.
Judge Joseph Manyungwa then proceeded to adjourn the matter to Friday, November 2.
Meanwhile, Callistaâ€™s injunction granted on Wednesday remains valid until the court decides otherwise on the matter.
