Guta was interdicted from police service earlier this year after he was arrested and charged of robbery with violence following his involvement in an armed robbery incident in Kanjedza residential area, Blantyre last year.

And two weeks ago he was apprehended by Limbe police after being implicated in another robbery.

It is a second time he has been arrested in connection to criminal activities since his interdiction. He was arrested in Chikhwawa district earlier this year for breaking into one of the shops.

National police spokesperson, Rhoda Manjoro while confirming the arrest refused to comment on the issue.

”It is difficult for us to comment on that right now since the matter is in court,” said Manjolo.

According to information Nyasa Times has sourced, Guta was arrested after he was named to be the one who supplied a gun to some criminals who staged a robbery in Blantyre.

Guta, 25, who was stationed at Chilobwe Police Unit in Blantyre, was arrested on 13th December, 2014 together with his accomplice, Geoffrey Kandulu for attacking and robbing an Indian businessman, Yasin Yusuf using official riffle.

The two stole K980, 000 cash and two cellphones valued at K1, 120,000, and were caught after a fierce gun-fire exchange with Malawi police Mobile Force officers who were called to the scene of the incident in Kanjedza residential area.

Guta and Kandulu on 2nd January, 2015 pleaded not guilty to robbery with violence charge. The case is still in court.

The offence as stipulated in Section 301 of the Penal Code attracts a minimum of 14 years imprisonment, or Life Imprisonment with Hard Labour (IHL)-if the accused had used a dangerous weapon when committing the offence.

  24. Ndinunkha! says:

    Why is the criminal out? Armed robbers should not even get bail in our courts. No wonder umbandawu sukutha. Alternatively kungowapotokola makhosi muselo amenewo

  25. Sapitwa kakulanye says:

    What is special with Guta? Don’t fool us. When did police stop commenting on issues that are in court? This clearly shows a conspiracy theory. Madam Manjolo knows the truth. Any way this is Malawi. Continue with the banana thinking. After all who cares as far as Guta does not steal from you.

  26. The guy is possessed now, he is full of anger now he is in a dangerous mission which will only take him to the grave. There is life after leaving the police force. All he has to do is to accept that he is no longer a police officer, then life goes on but now his CV is dented even Security companies can not touch him.

  33. Zoona? says:

    A Rhoda Manjolo refuse to comment just because he is aformer workmate?koma wina akangoba Nkhuku.Mma Tv ndi mma radio kutokota.Next he wil kill ur fellow cops.mudzimuikila kumbuyo choncho.

  34. Attention Seeker says:

    Why is the guy still out on bail after all these incidents? Certainly something is not adding up here and a clear indication that fellow policemen are protecting him which is a shame.
