Manjolo: The suspects will be taken to court

Police arrested a Medical Assistant, Edison Nkhonjera, 33, and Edward Buleya 38, on Sunday 25th October, 2015.

The two, who are staff at Gogo Nazombe Health Centre in the district, have since been charged with Theft by Public Servant contrary to Section 283 of the Penal Code.

According to law-enforcers, Nkhonjera and Buleya sold the solar panels to John Selemani who was later on arrested by members of health centre committee and community policing.

Nkhonjera hails from Enkhughani village, T/A Mtwaro in Mzimba district while Buleya comes from Mdoda village, T/A Nkhumba in Phalombe district.

The suspects are expected to appear before court soon  to answer charges of ‘Theft by Public Servant’..

Solar panels are a source of energy providing electricity  where there is no ESCOM power supply.

The conduct by the two have irked the community who have warned that they would not spare any person who plays around with public resources.

The Police have since advised the general public to be responsible and take good care of things that benefit a large group of people.

“People should also refrain from buying stolen things because it is an offense punishable by law,” National Police Spokesperson Rhoda Manjolo said.

    My brother, my friend Edson, I still don’t believe this is you and if indeed it is true. We’ve been together since 1995 going through thick and thin. We dreamt together, succeeded together. Never in our life time have we ever thought of this.

    If you pay people less you and late you get such kind of behavior. Increase people’s pay to avoid theft of public resources. Malawi’s public servant is the poorest paid in the world, and you expect people to not vandalize govt property? Come on. Deny people good pay and you breed thieves.

    Koma abale!Atumbuka inu simudzatheka. A Nkhonjera kuchoka all the way from Mzimba kukaba solar panel ku Phalombe!

    Gogo Nazombe Health Centre, what a beautiful name! I salute you the people of Phalombe for honouring someone for whatever reason. This is rare in Malawi. Please let us have more names like that honouring the people we can remember, not just Presidents.
    As for the two civil servants, if proven guilty, I wish the are given maximum sentences as a lesson to others.
