A man who impersonated a Chancellor College (Chanco) student in order to register with the college has been jailed for three years.

The man, Emmanuel Zosiyilana John, has been sent to prison for falsely registering himself with Chancellor College as Goodson Kangazi.

Zosiyilana: jailed

Presenting facts in court, police prosecutor Solomon Gomezgani Nchawi told the court that the convict, Zosiyilana John, was together with Kangazi at Zomba Catholic Secondary School.

They sat for Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) exams where Zosiyilana got 27 points while Kangazi got 12 points and qualified for Bachelor of Social Sciences, Gender Studies.

The two individuals are said to have met sometime after their secondary school and the convict managed to convince Kangazi to give him his certificate and offer letter from Chancellor College after Kangazi had opted not to reserve his place at Chancellor College.

At the college, Zosiyilana managed to register as Kangazi.

Speculation arose as the convict went to Mulunguzi court to change his name from Goodson Kangazi to Emmanuel Z John, a move that surprised the Assistant Registrar for Academics at Chancellor College, Mr Kanyumbu prompting him to alert the police.

Zosiyilana was arrested and in court he pleaded guilty to impersonation of a person named in a certificate.

On Thursday, Acting Chief Resident Magistrate Paul Chiotcha slapped the convict with 3 years imprisonment with hard labour.

  2. Why r u such a fool that u can’t see that if this chap is treated with kid gloves will mature into a bigtime crook? To me he was supposed to be given more that 10 yrs. By getting a degree by trick he wld have amassed millions of Malawi kwacha thru feft. Pliz, don’t treat him with kid gloves.

  3. I know that what he did is fraud & wrong at the same time BUT come on guys, this guy all he wanted was education. These corrupt politicians of ours are stealing lots of millions but no jail time. Why can’t you give this guy a suspended sentence & tell him to go back & write MSCE again as a condition so that in the end he can achieve his dream. Jail the real criminals out there who are killing our brothers & sisters with albinism not this guy please. H.E. The President of the Republic must give him presidential pardon.
