Mzimba police spokesperson Constable Gabriel Chiona identified the three as Moses Nkhata aged 39 Esther Mbale aged 34 and wife to Nkhata and 31 year old Isaac Saka.

“The three were using agriculture extension workers to introduce them to the farmers,” said constable Chiona.

The suspects swindled K3.5 million from farmers in Euthini, close to K5 million from farmers of Manyamula and undisclosed sums from farmers around Luvili , Jenda, Nkhamenya, Enfeni, Vibangalala and central business area in the district.

“They also duped civil servants in these areas promising them soft loans,” said constable Chiona.

The three were arrested by Mzimba central member of parliament Henry Mpofu Shaba who was concerned with the swindling which happened in his area where more than 1000 farmers were duped

Moses Nkhata comes from Mwajamanda village in the area of Inkosi Mabilabo,  his wife Esther Mbale comes from Chingala Kadoko village in the area of traditional authority Kaluluma  in Kasungu district and Isaac Saka is from Kathundu village in the area of Inkosi Mzikubola

    What actually did they do?

  2. Mendulo says:

    Congrats Nyasa times for showing their faces. I do not agree with the practice of some media houses of hiding the faces of suspects. Why hide the face of ‘suspect'(s) who has been caught red handed?

    Anatibera kuno ku Kasungu koma chilungamo sichinaoneke.They just corrupted all who were handling thier cases.And there were set free just imagine.Prosecutors from Mzimba just ask from kasungu, the truth will be known.Abale how can we trust our law enforce.Corruption at its best guys.
    All evidence was availabe but thses thieves were left free.Mulungu ndi wamkulu.Wamira pa phale koma msana ukuoneka

  6. Mtaya says:

    These thieves also stole some money from civil servants here in Kasungu in the name of soft loans.Ask staff members from Kasungu Hospital.No body knows how the case was concluded by the court.We cannot rule out corruption by law enforcers

    Tribalism comments makes me. Who told u that any of u so tribes are greater than the other .Have u forgotten that all of us came outside this country for instance Mozambique,
    .Zambia ,South Africa, Zimbabwe and other countries .So why must u kill each other over supremacy of tribes.

  12. victim Chamkhuni Lwazazi says:

    i am from the South, but am a Malawian like anyone else. I agree with Matutu. Tribal thinking is retrogressive, of sick, uncivilized minds. Tribal comments are boring and
    disgusting. We are one Malawi, one nation. Umbuli ndi chidani basi!!!!

  13. matutu says:

    This atumbuka, alomwe and rarely achewa kind of thinking & basis of conluding this and that is sickening. why link Nkhata to a tumbuka? is nkhata a tumbuka name. ppl who often think like this are deranged, ignorant & very sick in the brain. normal malawians do think like that. STOP.

  21. charles says:

    These two must face the reality of their bruto conducts, to return back the image which of other true organisations which carry such trust and true duties of such to farmerrs , ,Am saing two because Ester is a wife to Nkhata, and its Nkhata the husband who took his own wife , now wife for the sake of family she accepted to dupe , the punishable is the husband. kkk kkk muzidziwa

  29. sunderstar says:

    What happened for the people to be swindled by these three young people. Now our Police why pose these people for a picture without shoes and belts, I think this system must stop in the police stations, when people are arrested they are almost left naked because you are deprived of your belt and most of men trousers dont properly fit but rely on belts. We need civility in the police cells.

  30. wavisanga says:

    zikugwirizana bwanji ndi zoti atumbuka, inu alomwe munadya alubino kuno mulemele tinakunenai, stupid fools!

  32. Simeon Nyapala says:
