Nyaude: They have been charged

Police spokesman in Zomba, Tomeck Nyaude confirmed the arrest of Zomba Ntonya councillor Lawrence Kika, who won on the ruling DPP ticket, village head Kaselema and five others.

“The cement was for the construction of a bridge that connects Zomba Ntonya and Zomba Thondwe under the Local Development Fund (LDF). We have managed to recover six bags only,” said Nyaude.

He alleged the suspects broke into a store room where the bags of cement were kept pending commencement of the development project.

Nyaude said the suspects are still in police custody pending appearance in court to answer charges of theft.

Some DPP councillors have of late been hitting headlines for being on the wrong side of the law such as theft and rape.

District Commissioner for Zomba Bernard Kansala could not say the fate of the councillor and the village headman, saying his office would be directed by a court ruling.

He however lamented that such behaviour retards development activities.

Now this is the Malawi I know, there’s no way someone is simply a thief if he is in govt, and where the reporter has not given you any indication as to what the thief’s motives are we rush to attach it to the party. Any man is ruled by self preservation, and thieving is just a manifestation of self preservation. It is only a matter of how far YOU as an individual are willing to go. Let the law deal with these clowns accordingly. And then we might have a better chance to weigh this moment in our history.
