Malawi Police arrest ‘gangster’ at Wenera depot

Police in Blantyre have this week arrested a young but terrorizing man at Wenera bus depot before pouncing his four other men who were buying things the 25 year old man was stealing from buses at Wenera, which is the main countrywide bus depot in the commercial capital.

Blantyre Police Assistant Public Relations Officer Andrew Mayayo has said that Limbani Chafera aged 25 was arrested after he had stolen a laptop in a bus at the Wenera bus depot which is just a stone throw from Blantyre Police Station on Tuesday.

Chafera who has been charged with a theft case was found with seven laptops and 50 rounds of ammunition at his house.

The ammunition is said to have been stolen in March last year from a security officer of Speedy Food Industries in a bus right at the Wenera bus depot as he was travelling to Lilongwe.

Nyasa Times understands that the accused was posing as a passenger at the Wenera bus depot but was disembarking from the bus after stealing some property mostly laptops.

The police have since arrested Eric Namanja, Frank Sinoya, Stain Dodoma and Henry Kanyongolo for being customers of Chafera. They have ben charged with an offence of buying stolen property.

Wenera just like many bus stations in Malawi are a haven of criminals some of whom pose as touts or vendors.

Mau Akuseri take note that the word GANGSTER has been put in quotes like this ‘gangster’ translating that it has not been used wholesome. Do not do direct translation of local language and English used in news reporting. Check elsewhere the use is correct and no fuss about it. do not take personal issues with some reporters, plse. Is the ‘gangaster’yr relation?

Back to reporter Louis Phiri,Malawi does not have Gangsters not even one.Gangsters are in USA,RSA,Kenya,Egypt,Nigeria,Somalia.A gangster is a person who besides leading a group of thugs can either rape or kill someone in public either using a knife or a gun before stealing so mind the title when reporting.
