Nyasa Times undertsand that he had fraudulently altered legal property documents  which  he signed to guaranteed the sale of the plot  when he knew pretty well that it did not belong to the people whom he called his client.

Documents in Nyasa Times possession indicate that the learned lawyer Kam’mayani, on 8 January, 2015 signed a document that he is guaranteeing that the seller of plot number 47/4/820, a Mrs Mercy Chitamo and yet the real owner of the plot is Monica Chitawo meaning that the documents had contained similar initials of M.C.

When the paper work was done  Sibande transferred K10 million into the lawyers account so that he can remit into his self made client.

Soon after depositing the money through Inde Bank City Centre Branch, the Sibande family deployed some boys to be taking care of the plot.

Mrs Sibande told Nyasa Times that some people came and warned them that the owner of the plot is Mrs Chitawo and that she is not connected to the lawyer in anyway.

“When we went back to the lawyer to cross check about the tip off,  it was already too late since at that time the legal man had already gone at large,” said Mrs Chimwemwe Sibande.

When Nyasa Times visited the lawyer’s  office which is at his residence  in Area 47, he was reported “away”.

Evidence in our possession indicate that on 3 February, 2015, Kam’mayani admitted having stolen the money by sending an SMS to Chimwemwe Sibande that he will refund the misappropriated money.

Sibande said  Kam’mayani as a lawyer knew only too well what the consequences of his actions would be, saying abusing trust of clients is “despicable act”.

Kam’mayani could not pick his phone when contacted.

A Boston Sibande nanunso ndinu ogona eti……why didnt you go to the Ministry of Land to check file ya plot number 47/4/820…….if you got the fire from Ministry of Lands it could have told you who is the owner……By giving a little something to officers there at Land they allow you to see the file and who is the owner and the content and also check their Land Register book……..its that simple and it would have only cost you ( being generous) 5 pin that the 10 mita mukuyisowa apayi……..

Lawyers and theft are synonymous. Examples are many: C Kammayani, E Kachere, R Kasambara, L Gondwe, I Nkhoma etc. Lawyers ndi chigololo are also synonymous. Examples are many: Ambokile, Nankhuni, Kasambara, Kita, Kachere!

@ thakolinyada, I do not see a reason of spewing faeces on my face. You should be reminded that Malawi respects freedom of expression without infringing on others. I did not mention anybody apart from saying what Kam’mayani told me. Let me tell you if there is any smart death, that’s the one I will answer its call and not the one you are insinuating here! Sorry I do not deal with smaller brains who will not bring arguments to the table other than vitriol.
