Malawian lawyer Chrispine Kam’mayani is on the run after putting his hands on a K10 million from a well known ICT expert Boston Sibande on a deal in which the lawyer is alleged to have pocketed the money for plot number 47/4/820.
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.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
