MEC official caught ‘shoplifting’ at Mzuzu PEP Stores

A Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) official, Naomi Gondwe,  got the humiliation of a lifetime when she was caught red-handed trying to steal a pair of shoes from PEP Stores in Mzuzu City last week.pep_big

An eye witness, Samuel Kamanga, told Nyasa Times that Gondwe was locked in the shop for about an hour as a mob had steadily started gathering outside the premises “to teach her a lesson.”

According to Kamanga, Police came in later and managed to go away with Gondwe – but with difficulties.

This reporter tried to talk to one of the officials at the stores but he was told “we do not have a spokesperson here. Talk to our head office.”

But later, one of the workers, speaking on condition of anonymity revealed that “it was likely Gondwe had connived with one of the shop attendants.”

She said “our salaries are meager and so we sometimes cash in on things like these. It is just unfortunate that today’s venture has been busted.”

Surprisingly, Nyasa Times learnt, Gondwe is a senior MEC official at the regional headquarters who even drives a posh car.

“One wonders why such a person could stoop so low and attempt to steal a pair of shoes,” wondered Kamanga.

Folks,

I think we dont have time for productive issues. I feel sorry for my mother Malawi when you see people attacking each others tribe like that. Shame on you and You deserve death. I wonder God gives life to people who likes attacking their countrymen. Death should strike your family and friends because the evil deserves death. Feeling ashamed that I am associating myself with low minded people on this forum

Who has never stolen in life? It’s only an issue when one is caught but all of us at one point in time we took something that does not belong to us. It’s the devil that influences us to do such bad things.

it is wrong to combine this incident with MEC, Two different entities ,Dont involve MEC in the scandal of its employer, the scandal was done outside MEC,
you people of good will but with a bad, and immoral character ,why why are you amplifying the issue as if it is MEC that has mess up?,treat it not based on second hand information, dont exaggerate the story to sound as if it is a national scandal.
it was a dysfunctional deal obstructed by the shop manager before coming to pass.
