Zameer Karim refuses to comment on Pioneer bank account freeze

Zameer Karim, entangled with the President Peter Mutharika on one hand and the Malawi Police Service on the other over K2.7 billion fleecing of public money at Capital Hill, the seat of government in Lilongwe, is refusing to comment over the freezing of his bank account.

Karim of Pioneer Investment remain mum

The High Court in Blantyre on Monday froze K2.3 million from his Pioneer Investments until after the issue is settled in the court following a successful application by Youth And Society (YAS) organisation.

“I have not seen the documents. I cannot only comment after I have seen the documents,” said Karim, an Indian businessman.

Karim, through his Pioneer Investments, gave a generous K145 million into the account of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in a donation that has raised eyebrows and might lead to the downfall of the President and his DPP in the forthcoming elections in 2019.

Mutharika has not commented on the matter but court documents indicate that Karim’s bank account at the National Bank of Malawi cannot be withdrawn by over K2.3 million.

Youth and Society lawyer Bright Theu said this was to prevent Karim and his company from withdrawing beyond the amount before the case goes for substantive hearing in the court.

Karim generously deposited K145 milliion into the bank account of the DPP to which Mutharika is a sole signatory, raising issues of transparency and accountability.

Civil society organisations are already asking for the resignation of the Malawi President or else he faces an impeachement trial.

Apa ndipo mukulongola kuti mahala mulije imwe ba Kajoloweka na Mtambo na Trapezi.

Until Malawi begins to treat these crooked Indians like Kamuzu the Kango did, by taking away trading licenses of the crooks and deporting them after some time at Chichiri and Zomba Central Prisons Malawi will be robbed and Malawians treated like their Manna Boys!
Mutharika should be tried and jailed for conspiring with Karim to steal from the Police. Mutharika has no loyalty to Malawi.

We need to start dealing with these corrupt Indians who keep enticing our non-patriotic leaders. There are a lot of Indians who have made too much money during this ‘democratic’ era in Malawi: Gani wa Hotel Victoria, Master wa Pharmanova, the Transglobe guys, Kasman from Globe limited, Chaudrey wa Sana, Lido etc to mention a few. Anthu a ACB please gwilani ntchito yanu. Bravo to YAS!!
