The incident occurred on Thursday, February 5, 2015 following a tip to MRA from members of the public about suspicious items in the truck.

The Indian hemp was in a carton and divided in 6 packages, each weighing 7kgs. The carton was concealed between sun-dried small fish locally known as Matemba.

The owner of the consignment was identified as Christopher Mkuwu from Mangochi District. Mkuwu was immediately arrested and taken to Champhira Police Post.

MRA is further appealing to members of the general public to always report issues of any malpractices such as smuggling, tax evasion and corruption through the toll free number 847 for Airtel and TNM subscribers or 80000847 for MTL subscribers.

Informants can also send their tips to the Centre through email address: [email protected] or fax to 0182 229.

  18. Nkhombokombo says:

    Point of correction, Lojwa is not in Mzimba, it is just the extreme end trading centre and the within the demarketer of the two sister districts. This chamba would come from either district.

    Know geography plz; Lodjwa is in Kasungu not Mzimba.
    The stuff would earn the owner cash enough to feed himself and dependants in this highly tax corridor
