Lawyer Salimu: Faces allegations of swindling client

Blantyre police spokesperson said Salim is expected to be taken to Lilongwe for the case.

However,  the police remain muted on the details of the case.

He was arrested on Wednesday.

Malawi Law Society secretary Martha Kaukonde said the society is probing the matter.

“If we confirm that he indeed swindled a client, then we will refer him to our disciplinary committee,” said Kaukonde.

She however said issues of lawyers swindling money their clients has drastically reduced in the past years.

The client is to blame. You can’t entrust your money with this boy. His appearance tells a story and does not inspire confidence to me. Some books can be judged by their covers

Malawi Law Society (MLS) is there to brash people at this point in time. My case against some lawyers is rotting at their office to-date. They are all lawyers and they shield one another and we know it well. MLS is so toothless and the lawyers are so powerful and they dont even fear it. With their president mmmmmh nanji?

Why were you using a lawyer to get a title deed? Why not go yourself to ministry of lands?
