Friends of the deceased who was affectionately known as Karim Cazal in the city, gathered in fleet of high-end luxury super cars for his memorial.
In one of the videos shared by Karim’s close friend Gilbert Kamaliza, a long procession of luxury supercars guided by the South African Police could be seen making its way to Sandton all in honour of Karim.
It was reported earlier that the deceased was a fugitive who was declared wanted in Malawi over a US$32 million fraud which has since been termed cashgate.
The cashgate scandal which has been described as one of the biggest financial scandals in Malawi’s history, took place in 2013. The Malawian state is alleged to have been defrauded of US$32 million, almost 1% of its annual GDP, in just six months, as money was siphoned out of government coffers and resulted in donors who bankroll the country’s budget by up to 40% pulling the plug on aid.
