Fake lawyer arrested after representing suspect in Lilongwe Magistrate court

Malawi Police in Lilongwe have arrested a man for impersonating a lawyer and  used an incorrect legal language in court.

Fake lawyer arrested

Police spokesperson for Lilongwe Kingsley Dandaula confirmed the arrest of Yohane Somanje whom he said was representing a suspect in a case but a magistrate got suspicious with the way he was handling legal issues in the court.

“He was failing to follow court proceedings and this raised suspicion so the magistrate ordered the police to arrest him,” he said.

The Magistrate became more suspicious  after he used wrong legal language in court.

He said Law Society of Malawi officials were called to verify whether Somanje was a practicing lawyer or not.

Dandaula said it was proved that Somanje was not a lawyer and has since been charged with impersonating a public officer.

What about the fake president and the fake vice president, fake speaker, fake police inspector, fake opposition leader, fake donation into the fake dpp account by a fake businessman, a crime that hast not been investigated by the fake anti corruption body? What about fake cso bodies funded by fake donors who release fake reports about our fake democracy. Our economy is fake, our pastors are fake, drivers licences are fake, judges are fake, traditional chiefs are fake, our roads are fake, hey we even have fake doctors and fake medication. We are malawi fake incorporated limited.

Very sad. But I don’t agree with those saying Somanje is a Lohmwe. I am not defending my tribe but in Malawi it’s very difficult to tell the tribe of a person. He maybe a Chewa or Yao who knows. How have you identified him?
