Foreign affairs minister is an ex convict

Information has now emerged that Foreign Affairs Minister Joe Malanji is an ex convict

He served a jail term for theft of a motor vehicle. 

A relative to Malanji says in a country where politicians are heavily scrutinised before elections, Mr. Malanji could not have stood as a Member of Parliament. The source said Mr. Malanji borrowed a Car from then Mining Manager at Nchanga Division of the ZCCM. 

Mr. Joe Malanji befriended Mr. Handson Sindowe now one of Zambia’s richest at Nchanga Golf Club. Later, Mr. Malanji borrowed Mr. Sindowe’s vehicle and drove straight into Kasumbalesa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Mr. Sindowe for days looked for Mr. Malanji but he was nowhere to be seen. After some days, Mr. Malanji appeared and claimed he was abducted by bandits and driven into DRC where he was dumped. Mr. Sindowe reported the matter to both the Zambia Police in Chingola and the then Mine Police. Investigations where instituted and it was discovered that Mr. Joe Malanji now a very senior Minister in the PF Cabinet sold the vehicle. Mr. Malanji was arrested and taken to court. Witnesses came forward and testified against Malanji. The Magistrate sentenced Malanji to nine months imprisonment. He served the Jail term at Mufulira Correctional Facility. Now this Malanji is Zambia’s top diplomat.

    Omg. Can’t actually believe some readers are defending a thief. Yes every one sins, that’s why not everyone should be allowed to lead. This is why politicians are stealing from the zambian people, because they still defend them blindly. Shame.

    Diplomat(R) 1 week ago

    I demand that 12 lawyers who colluded Nd conspired with their relatives in the judiciary face corruption and money laundering prosecutions. I didn’t work for the Un to motivate corruption oriented idiots to entice themselves with what I earned and achieved and pillage me through the judiciary. Then when I sued them they induced another judiciary members to remove my suit illegally from the cause list. They identified me as a returning UN Diplomat and shamefully manufactured vexatious suits as methods of E storming and robbing me. Stupid idiots who wait for a woman to work that’s when they Juno up and down abusing  polices to steal from a woman,mThey conspired with their relatives to manufacture costs out of my assists. That’s being foolish. That’s clear money laundering. I am dragging LAZ and ZUALE to the highest court in the u inverse for them to account Nd take full responsibility of their lawyers stupidity. I competed with people from various parts of the world to get on Biard the Un, and they just prey on me like horses and start riding on my things with underachieved women. There is no difference from the money laundering crimes which Kapoko has just been convicted of, with their acts. I will. It stop calling the entire universe to help me arrest them. I will call on every global citizen to identify them as scamsters wherever they go. Some Zambians have corruption in their genes and need to be put away for good. Kapoko would have gotten more years in other countries. Shameful thing, eating other people’s money when GID made you with hands and legs to work. Shame on ZUALE and LAZ and the judiciary for also allowing the civil process to be abused as a money laundering vehicle. They targeted me an anti fraud, anti corruption financial crimes, sexual crimes, Nd. Rimes against humanity Investigatior, and I caught them nakedly committing all these crimes in abuse of the court process.  President ECL must not i yefere, in their prosecution. I also need him to account for the illegal decisions made by his incompetent decision makers. SADC and AU and UN should educate him that appointing incompetent persons to decision making positions constitutes crimes against humanity, for which he may be required to stand in the same dock   Accused of such crimes, when such incompetent persons are criminally prosecuted. ECL I need U 2 account for the illegal decisions made by the justices you appointed. They have no jurisdiction to aid law breaking. I joined Nd worked for the UN on merit Nd I am nit obliged to share my money with those who cannot. LAZ and ZUALE owe me for the idiots they gave legal practicing Licences. Why steal from. UN Diolomat. Professionalism is all about probity, honesty and integrity and nit shameful stealing. We have the right to demand that LAZ and ZIALE disband, as the majority of your lawyers re bandits and lack authenticity. They lie,manipulate and steal documents Nd induce court Marshals as a way of litigation. That’s nit right.  Kapoko is just the same as the majority of your lawyers. Shameful stealing. I demand the entire $2.5million I worked hard for and earned, which your idiots pillaged and have been enslaving me to be attending extort its suits, and getting their relatives to bully me. They can’t strip me of the Diplomatic status I already achieved.   They must gain skills to enjoy such prestige and not to mobb me like pigs.  No one is getting away with impunity. For targeting me. Zambia has no right to calculate and distribute my UN salaries and benefits to  the extent of them even making budgets over me. Shameful legal framework. Shameful idiots you are.

    Will you please tell us when this crime was committed. Remember,you are only a thief when you are caught.How many thieves are at ZWD but pontificate that they are law abiding? This country like many other countries has a lot of thieves freely roaming the streets just because they have not been caught.I believe Hon Malanji is a successful story of a criminal ( if the story is true ) who has fully been integrated back into society and is contributing to the development of the country.
