With the help of a lozi interpreter, the 21-year-old youth who was recently arrested for allegedly using renowned entrepreneur Brian Chanda’s Instagram account to swindle members of the public has pleaded guilty to obtaining money by false pretenses.
But facts in the matter could not be read this morning because the prosecution team applied to amend the indictment and include more charges against Paul Kawewe.
In December, police announced the arrest of Kawewe of Mtendere East in Lusaka for allegedly impersonating various business houses and people, including acclaimed entrepreneur Chanda Brian.
The youth allegedly advertised Mr Chanda’s products through a fake Instagram page called “Chanda Brian 2000.”But Mr Chanda discovered that the suspect would collect money from unsuspecting members of the public via Airtel money.
Police announced the recovery of 19 sim cards from Kawewe which he alledly used for scamming people to a tune of K1million.
