Handwriting Expert Testifies in Kambwili Case

A handwriting expert has told the Magistrate’s Court that the disputed signatures signed on documents filed at the Patents and Companies Registration Agency (PACRA) in connection with Mwamona Engineering and Technical Services Limited belonged to Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili’s signature.

Detective chief Inspector Thomas Phiri said a comparison of disputed signatures and their specimen revealed that there was a strong comparison of Kambwili’s handwriting.

Inspector Phiri was testifying in a matter Kambwili is charged with three counts of forgery, uttering false documents and giving wrong information to a public officer.

In his testimony, Phiri said on November 28 last year, he received documents from his supervisor on which to conduct an examination.

He said the documents were relating to Mwamona Engineering and Technical Services Limited where Kambwili is a director.

“The documents included: Companies form two, Companies form five and form 17 and List of directors and resolution of boards of directors,” Phiri said.

He said the purpose of collecting the documents was to ascertain whether the people who signed on the specimen are linked to the disputed signatures.

Phiri said he also requested for specimen samples obtained from Kambwili’s wife Carol, his son Mwamba and his sister Sampa.

“I [also] received random specimen signature samples obtained from Kambwili on performance appraisal system forms,” Mr Phiri said.

He examined the company forms, list of directors and resolution of boards of directors and conducted a side by side forensic comparison of the disputed writings and the specimen.

“I found that the signatures purported to have been signed by Sampa Kambwili, Carol Kambwili and Chishimba Kambwili did not match the specimen samples,” Mr Phiri said.

He, whoever, said the disputed signatures alleged to have been signed by Kamwbili matched with the specimen signed by the lawmaker.

Phiri said he found that Sampa, Carol and Mwamba never appended their signatures on the documents under investigation.

      The levels of ignorance in our nation is alarming. People have no faith in our own systems and that is a third world mentality.

    • Iwe TEFYO, these handwriting experts have always been there. They operate like CIDs so it is difficult to know them publicly. Get out of the hole where you are marooned.

We don’t want 2 hear corruption bcoz they lost business after bin fired or resign frm gov’t. Ck callin president lungu names wasn’t help u bcoz yo story lik a song like by pipo but fade after samtime.

  9. c.k

    we are not refuting the fact that they exist, but the real question is where do they get the training that qualifies them to be HANDWRITING EXPERTS, or who appoints them, and based on what?

  10. paul

  11. paul

    am not saying kambwili is innocent am just emphasizing that government won’t leave any stone unturned

    Experts have always been there. We have had cheque frauds and other crimes particularly water collar. They use these experts to convict suspects. Govt has been training these people from Kaunda’s time outside this country. Now it will be an issue of court relaying on expert advice and other collaborating evidence.. I hope It will not be tricky or tight for CK

    You mean we still have cockroaches in Zambia, who don’t understand that just because an institution offering Handwriting identification courses does not exist in Zambia does not mean that you don’t have local experts. The American government, Israeli and British government s through Scotland yard have been offering scholarship to Zambian law enforcement officers since the early 90s. Some of them are very trained in crime scene investigations, forensics, handwriting and financial crimes, they’re are just frustrated by a lack of equipment after extensive training abroad. Imagine, after 54years of independence, we still don’t have a single polygraph machine(lie detector machine.)
