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

  7. 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.

  8. shumb says:

    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.

    Naomi has always been a thief. A holder of a Diploma in Education, a mother of two, Naomi was divorced for similar acts. She stole money belonging to her mother inlaw.
    It will be interesting to see how MEC will deal with this issue that has brought the institution into disrepute . Will Max Mbendera dismiss her or let her go free?? We are following with interest

  21. Mbanangwa says:

    This is typical of the queen, crypto- tendencies. One may not intend to steal but in their inborne imbalances, they feel like taking something that does not belong to them. The queen has a lot of pounds but she shoplifts things n no value that will cost less than £20

  22. Chigandu says:

    From a vote RIGGER to a SHOP PICKER eee! What a shameless woman.

  23. Alfred says:

    This fate story of Naomi should creates a reflection everyone’s viral private life, take a look and reflect vividly on the previous or your present life style. are you perfect enough? we are all human beings with that sinful nature.at one point we might have sinned, on a similar note or different from this.
    human being are prone to era, sometimes intentional or not, who are we to judge on what happened to Naomi?.This would be a learning curve to everyone who at one point in time we were attempted to sin. sin is real, the devil desire is at deceiving , we are all sinners and we are striving for a process to be purified by the blood of Jesus.Jesus was speaking, to those who has never done anything contraly to biblical injunctions to throw stones to a woman who was caught, i reminisce ,non of them had the vigor to do.
    we are all in the hand of a workmanship ,JESUS, repentance is an ideal . it is time not to condemn a sinner but , to encourage, guide, advice, and lead her to a right pathway.
    let me remind you of what you have been doing, you have done a lot , zonukha, but God has been faithful, He keeps on loving you as his child, had it been God was a GENERAL MANAGER , he would have payed you off instantly.
    i ask every one who seem to have been annoyed of her misconduct to forgive and forget. She has learn a lesson as per what nyasa has described, PLEASE , Stand with her , pray with her, let her enjoy you your advice, and she is to respect you forever,
    let us show the real love embraced by our Lord, Jesus Christ. to era is human to forgive is divine.

  24. what a life time humiliation! If she had wings she’d have flown away

  25. big testicles says:

    chindere @40, i think mbuzi ndi iweyo. theft is theft, it doesn’t matter if you steal an apple or a car. you don’t take what is not rightfully yours. you must instead learn to save and save then buy what you want legally, then you will enjoy your purchase so much more.

    this is so hard to stomach because the individual works for an organisation that’s mandated to oversee the direction of the whole country. they take an oath for chrissakes!

    please try your best to teach your children these simple life principles then maybe the next generation will fix this god forsaken country. remember, cashgaters started with little amounts too.
