The security exercise led to the arrest of over ten individuals including some beer custodians.

After the accused individuals were charged, convicted and committed to community service, the Magistrate Court also ordered that the beer, whose exact value had not been established, be disposed of.

The beer included several bottles of Carlsberg, Chibuku beer, 750 ml bottles of Brandy, Powers No 1, Malawi Gin and other kinds of sachet spirit beer.

    This is crime against humanity. Same as burning ivory. Justice stretched too far to the extent of making no moral sense at all.

  2. The Oracle says:

    This is profane and the magistrate should be arrested without delay. The act of destroying legal alcohol is an insult to the nation. Taxes have been paid for the destroyed alcohol at different levels and this includes money for wages for the judiciary and the police. If the magistrate was wise, he was supposed to return the products to brand owners Chibuku, Carlsberg and Malawi distilleries.
