The man with president Edgar Lungu in these photos is Shawi Fawaz. The woman is Fawaz’s wife.

Now, this Shawi Fawaz, is the king of Jerabos, (Copper thieves).


Who is Fawaz?

Mar 25, 1998: Lusaka magistrate’s court issues a warrant for the arrest of a Lebanese businessman Shawi Fawaz, who is facing various counts of unlawful exportation of illegal drugs.

In the 1989, he was deported from Zambia due to his criminal activities but the court allowed him back in the country after he bribed his way back into the country and arguing that he was Zambian by birth.

In 1994, Fawaz with Prosper Chelela was sentenced to 20 years in prison with hard labour for murdering a person named as Grant Kolala. The deceased was discovered dead behind the steering wheel of fiat motor vehicle, which was in a ditch by the side of the road in Lusaka.

Fawaz was only acquitted by the Supreme Court after the only eye witness was threatened and money exchanged hands.

In 2006, Fawaz was arrested and jointly charged with Kelvin Katambika for aggravated robbery of a BMW X5 then valued at K300 million, belonging to Henry Kapoko.

2007, arrested again on charges of aggravated robbery and one of conspiracy to murder.

Currently, he is involved in a war with Euro Africa over the Kalengwa mine in Mufumbwe.

He has now gone political and he has just managed to get into State House.
