Civil servants duped

Confirming about a suspected conman, Lilongwe Police Station Deputy Spokesperson Kingsley Dandaula, has said that so far 20 people have made official complaints that prompted law enforcers to pick one Dave Ngalande, in connection to the matter.

Increasing reports of Civil Servants distancing themselves from the loans prompted the Department of Human Resource Management and Development to engage the Police.

However , the 37-year suspect, whose victims include employees from the Plant and Vehicle Hire Organization (PVHO), Judiciary, and Ministry of Information, Tourism and Culture, is on bail pending trial.

The accused has been charged with three counts of; Forgery, Uttering false document and Obtaining money by false pretense.

The Police say that so far they have information that the conman obtained pay slips of the civil servants then produced an identity document, usually a Voter’s Certificate, which he then used to obtain a loan at one of the lending institution.

Watch out.


This is a wake up call on all of us Malawians and its regardless of whether one is educated or not, we are fond of releasing very vital information sometimes. But this is also a serious issues and i suspect someone within the system is involved. Its a challenge that such a suspect was granted bail by the court that also has some of its members of staff as victims of this suspect.

As a citizen of Malawi I feel this is not a simple affair. It is a web of actors that need a good system of investigation. who issued payslips? How? who issued the loan? How? How many times to same person different Names? How? Why? for whom was the deal? and with who were they sharing?


Gentlemen, I wonder if this really happen. It is because when processing loans you need procedure. It is not only ID can make someone to obtain a loan. As an employ your bosses need to certify or confirm that you are a civil servant. Those institution lends money also has their ways of approving the loans. Lastly I think there was connection with the institution that lends the money.

The lending institution must be deregistered and some salaries officers dismissed forthwith.
