Karim Cazal's remains have reportedly been issued to his family after they had to wait a few weeks for the Malawian authorities to confirm who he is. Karim, better known as Karim Lumumba, was burnt beyond recognition after the horrific crash that took the lives of Genius Ginimbi, Moana and Alichia in Zimbabwe earlier this month. Karim's family confirmed that his remains were released with a Burial by Order which was issued by the authorities after they conducted DNA tests to confirm Karim's body.

Prior to his remains being repatriated Karim Cazal's remains were held at the Funeral Home, thereafter preparations to have him transported from Harare, Zimbabwe to his homeland of Chiradzulu in Malawi went underway.

The accident happened after they left Ginimbi's nightclub after a celebration of Moana's birthday party. Before they went out, he had taken to his Instagram to give a preview of what was about to go down.

“Guys, it’s time to go out, it’s gonna be going down. We’re going to Dreams (nightclub) in the next few minutes, it’s gonna be going down. It’s Moana’s birthday, we’re going to pop champagne, it’s gonna be champagne showers tonight, see you there,”

Karim was a fugitive from justice, wanted in connection with the country’s biggest corruption scandal, according to NyasaTimes. Lumumba escaped justice from Malawi and was based in South Africa as he was answering a case together with former Budget Director Paul Mphwiyo over-involvement in the cash-gate scandal, the biggest corruption scandal in Malawi’s history that took place in 2013. Businessman Lumumba had faced money laundering charges related to the scandal involving US$2.6 million before he escaped justice and was reportedly based in South Africa.

Limumba was facing charges alongside Mphwiyo and others, including civil servants such as former Accountant General David Kandoje, Auzius Kazombo Mwale, Clemence Mmadzi, and Roosevelt Ndovi. The list of suspects also includes contractors.
