Registrar of Societies Clement Andeleki says he will appeal to the Supreme Court the throwing out of court his bid to deregister the MMD.
Andeleki, known for his crooked behavior stated that he is greatly dissatisfied with Judge Kabuka’s ruling.
Without remorse, Andeleki said the people of Zambia have once again been robbed of the justice they have been crying for adding that he will not rest until justice prevails in the matter.
Judge Jane Kabuka this morning delivered judgment in against the de-registration of the MMD on grounds that the move was against public interest and unreasonable
A few years ago, Andeleki was convicted by the magistrate courts for pretending to be a qualified lawyer and going into court to defend ‘clients’. He was then just a law student. He was consequently banned by the Law Association of Zambia from ever practicing law in Zambia even if he should qualify.
In 2006, while working as a police officer, he forged State House headed papers and wrote a letter purporting it to be written by late president Levy Mwanawasa.
He gave the letter to then opposition leader Michael Sata. Sata sent the letter to The Post newspaper which published it. The letter purported that President Mwanawasa ordered the arrest of PF cadres who waved at him on his way to the official opening of Parliament in January 2006.
This forged letter by Andeleki resulted in Sata, current vice-president Guy Scott and Andeleki being arrested and charged with defamation of the president. The three escaped jail only because Mwanawasa died before the matter was concluded in 2008.
Andeleki then got a job as lecturer at Mulungushi University in Kabwe but was dismissed for misconduct.
He then joined the National Institute of Public Administration (NIPA) where he was until PF won and given the job of Chief Registrar of Societies.
Even though he was just a lecturer at NIPA, Andeleki on his CV says ‘I am a Zambian national aged 34 years currently employed as a Lawyer at the National Institute of Public Administration.’
He said his job description is: ‘Senior Consultant – Legal Studies Advise Management on Legal Matters and Lecture Trainee Magistrates, Prosecutors, Victim Support Unit Officers and a Child Rights Lawyer Affiliated to UNICEF.’
Andeleki completed law studies at UNZA in 2005 but could not get a law practising certificate from the Zambia Institute of Advanced Legal Education (ZIALE) because he was banned after masquerading as a qualified lawyer and going to court to defend accused persons. He was therefore not employed as a lawyer at NIPA.
Meanwhile, the Watchdog understands that the PF has been given a certificate of exemption from paying fees to the Registrar of societies. The exemption is normally given to charitable organisations only.
