Gam Fuels Ownership Legal Battle Intensifies

There is still intensified legal battle underground on the controversy surrounding Gam Fuels Kanengo Filling Station ownership, as Realsim, a company chaired by Bishop Abraham Simama, which purchased the facility from Sheriffs, has now joined the case as an interested party; according to court documents we have seen.

Kalekeni Kaphale, lawyer for Geleson Mkweza who owns the facility, tells us the High Court in Lilongwe has since set September 20, 2022 for an inter-party hearing on the Realism application and others.

We have further established that the court will also hear an application by Mkweza’s lawyers to set aside an order for sale of the filing station.

The court is also expected to make a determination on Realsim application to vacate the 3rd August order for an interim relief which stopped Sheriffs from selling the filling station and give back the property to Mkweza.

But we could not independently confirm this with Realism lawyer, Wapona Kita who simply promised to come back to us but had not done so at the time of filling this update.

Sherrifs sold the property at K610 million. Earlier, businessman Alfred Gangata had sued for loss of business after Mkweza allegedly confiscated his borehole drilling compressor keys to push for payment of a K1.5 million debt.

Realism purchased the facility at that amount but Mkweza argues that his property was worth K2 billion. The controversy moved parliament do deliberate the issue and hinted on summoning the Judicial Service Commission over the conduct of the judge who handled the matter.

Gangata’s lawyers are yet to comment on the latest developments.
