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.
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.
