The development follow reports of lawyers running away from their clients after pocketing huge sums of money.

The documents that Kam’mayani signed showed that Mercy Chitamo the owner of the plot was selling it for K10 million.

After Sibande had deposited money for the lawyer to pay it on his behalf, she realised that the plot belonged to Monica Chitawo and Mercy Chitamo was a made-up name.

The lawyer admitted to have stolen the money and promised to refund.

Reacting to the misconductd, MLS President John Suzi Banda said these malpractices are tarnishing the image of lawyers in the country.

“As law society we are worried with these reports of misconducts and the society is there to ensure that people have not lost their trust in us,” said Banda.

Banda added that people are supposed to demand for licenses from lawyers especially when dealing with them on issues that involves money.

  3. he should not just promise payback he must be arrested fast and now.
    and licence should not only be produced where money is involved but in every deals with these lawyers. i just wonder if their practice has anything to be desired because to me it means the whole essence of them defending or representing a client is based on no good faith or facts and perhaps greed can explain this as it is what we see here
