President of the Malawi Law Society (MLS) John Suzi Banda said the society had earlier received over 400 complaints and most of the complaints involved abuse and misuse of clients money by the learned lawyers.

“Most of these cases date back as far as 2015.In 2015, we had received 402 complaints but we have managed to deal with the other complaints and we are remaining with 270 complaints,” he said.

Banda said the law provides that his organization reports the matter t the Attorney General who in turn would inform the Chief Justice for action.

He said most likely the lawyers would lose the practicing licences and will now be taken to court so that the clients can take back their money through court action.

The Lawyers in Malawi are some of the worst group of lawless heartless nasty people. The whole Judiciary can’t be trusted.
Justice is not the goal of the majority of LAWYERS and JUDGES but instead
how much money they can put in their pockets even BETRAYING THEIR OWN CLIENTS and stealing their monies

Sounds good, Suzi. Hope reporting to the AG and then matter put before the CJ does not take any truthful Malawian more than a month! For the first time, during your tenure, let’s hear something fruitful that does clean the legal profession.
