Criminals steals money at Chikwawa police, escape

Seven hardcore criminals escaped from police cell at Chikwawa Police Station on Tuesday and money amounting to over MK100, 000  ($200)went missing at the same time.

According to Chikwawa Assistant Commissioner, Macmillan Nyirongo, the incident happened in the early hours of Tuesday, January 6, 2015.

Nyirongo said the thugs escaped through the roof in presence of officers on duty adding that most escapees were on pending to answer charges of theft especially of cattle.

He said his office was investigating the matter, but also urged his officers to be on alert and provide full security to both their offices as well as to the communities.

The Assistant commissioner then assured the general public that police would continue to be on alert in order to maintain security in all areas in the district.

The new officer in charge has an uphill task to build the image of the police as communities have been accusing the law enforcers of failing to work in the best interest of the public.–Reporting by Steve Chirombo, Mana

    Does this really make sense to you the law enforcers. This is where and why the general public is losing confidence and trust in you.
    Commander in Chief/ I G ,please continue cleaning up the mess in the police.
    You will certainly have the support of the general public and corporate world.

  31. Please police give us a rest says:

    They escaped thru the roof and money went missing at the same time. So these thugs had access to that cash. Were they working as cashiers? The majority of them in custody are thieves so why put money somewhere where a those thieves could see it and get tempted to steal.
    This is not adding up. This Police need genuine reform. Am sorry I do not trust these people called Police.

  32. Achimidzimidzi says:

    Koma kumeneko!
    They talk about security of common man but they themselves are the first ones to be hit by insecurity matters.

    Those who rely on the arm of the flesh will be disappointed. Read what scriptures say.
