Police at Phalula in Balaka district in eastern Malawi have arrested two people over alleged car theft in Blantyre.
Detective Sergeant Paul Kapumila of Phalula says the suspects Brian Karim (35) and Evance Zonzi (36) were arrested at Phalula ad-hock road block following a tip-off from members of the general public over a stolen Nissan Tidia registration number IT 2891.
He says in the course of searching, they came across a vehicle of the same make and colour, but its registration number was MN 3242.
“We later found out that this was not the real number of the vehicle as the vehicle documents were depicting that of the vehicle IT 2891 which was stolen in Blantyre,” says Kapumila.
Meanwhile, the suspects have been handed over to Police Anti-motor vehicle section in Blantyre for further investigations.
Gift Paul Banda who is commonly known as Brian Karim comes from Kalonga village, Traditional Authority Maganga in Salima district while Evance Zonzi comes from Kasepu village, Traditional Authority Mzukuzuku in Mzimba district.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
