The suspects, identified as Charles Labana, Gerald James and Moses Kachingwe, were also found in possession of a Malawi Police camouflage uniform, two handcuffs, panga knives and a bunch of keys they were allegedly using to break into targeted houses.

“They were terrorizing and targeting unsuspecting people at the Park. With the Malawi Police camouflage uniform and handcuffs, the suspects were impersonating police officers until some victims came to report to us about these people whose criminal acts reflected badly on us,” said Andrew Mayawo, Assistant Publicist for Blantyre Police.

He further said apart from cash, the suspects were also targeting items like cell phones and laptops.

Mayawo said they will answer two charges of impersonating police officers contrary to Section 389; and robbery and violence contrary to Section 301 of the Penal Code.

He said they also recovered some items, mainly cell phones and hoped the owners will identify them.

So far, two people, 44 year-old Howard Phaiya and Robson Chinyama have identified their items. Phaiya, who was attacked on August 10 this year, was snatched Nokia XL valued at K95,000 while Chinyama was snatched a Blackberry and Nokia C3.

“We will ask the court if they could be remanded at Chichiri Prison. We need to gather more evidence and figure out other proper charges for them,” said Mayawo.

Twenty-seven year Labana hails from Nyaulombo village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Makhuwira in Chikwawa district; James, aged 29, comes from Khatata village, T/A Kuntaja in Blantyre district while Kachingwe, 27, comes from Nkusa village, T/A Changata in Thyolo district.
