Malawi Police arrest wife of lawyer on-the-run

Malawi Police  have arrested  wife to lawyer Chrispine Kam’mayani who is  reportedly at  large following an alleged swindle of a cool K10 million, and charged her with bribery after her attempt to bribe Police officers got foiled.

Mrs Sibande stressing the point to Nyasa Times

Mrs Sibande tells Nyasa Times that the lawyer admitted obtaining money fraudlently

Chronology of events leading to her capture indicate that when Nyasa Times published that  Police are hunting Kam’mayani for fraudulent criminal charges, his wife went to Lilongwe Police Station with K40,000 in her purse.

But Police officers rejected her bid and later locked her up.

Mrs Kam’mayani went to the station in order to plead with the law enforcers not to arrest her husband.

Lilongwe Police Publicist Kingsley Dandaula asked for more time to cross check however he confirmed that Police is indeed received complaint on K10 million swindle.

Dandaula confirmed that the lawyer’s wife was held on bribery allegations.

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

Kam’mayani sent  an SMS to Chimwemwe Sibande – who paid the money for the bogus plot – 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.

Kkkkkkkkk only God knows.its hard for us to judge


As far as I am concerned, malawian police can never reject, and wu never say no to money power. A police tangonenani kt mnachulukapo ndilama inachepa mwina. komansotu, how true is this allegations? Mtuluseni mkaziyo sizikumukhuza olo. zomangana ndi zopepela zinatha kalekale. Trivial


In my opinion, I would believe what the police are saying regarding the arrest of the lawyer’s wife. It has to do with them having to keep what the lawyer adores most.

How would someone just wake up in the morning and walk into a police station with cash. You would think that its naive or the police arent telling us the truth. I know my Malawi and I know my Police officers. Release the wife as she is not in any way an accomplice to a crime committed by her husband


I agree that he is dancing. Pitani pa LL Magistrates Court a self imposed spokes person for Ralph, also known as JB on this forum mukadzionele ndi maso anu. How is the prosecution dancing?


eee!!! a polisi mwakana 40,000 anthu adyera ngati inu. kwaterera. inunso akazi a lawyer kuzolowera kudya zakuba. akusungeni masiku awiri. mumayerekedwa kunja kuno mukudya za eni
