Two Chibuku workers arrested for stealing diesel in Mzuzu

Malawi Police in Mzuzu have arrested two employees of Chibuku Products Limited on suspicion that they stole 17 386 litres of diesel valued at over K12 million (US$26 966).

In an interview on Tuesday, Mzuzu Police spokesperson, Martin Bwanali, said the two — 35-year-old Allum Magaga Msowoya of Lusulumphala Village in the area of T/A Mwahenga, Rumphi and 34-year-old Edwin Munthali of Ngosi Village, T/A Kyungu, Karonga — were employed by the company as workshop clerk and occupation financial analyst respectively.

“Between November 2014 and 23 May 2015 at Chibuku depot in Mzuzu, the two stole 17 386 litres of diesel of Chibuku Products Limited,” Bwanali said.

He said the issue came to light following an audit which the company carried out on 23 May 2015.

Bwanali said Msowoya, among whose duties was to supply fuel to company vehicles from the pump located within Chibuku premises, was the first to be arrested and, following interrogations by the police, he implicated Munthali.

He said the police have since charged the suspects with the offence of theft by servant contrary to Section 286 of the Penal Code.

When I was an accountant for these guys they treated me badly. They should close shop.


17000 litres mmm.Gentlemen if this is true let us think twice.This is killing the company and end result will be mchokocho.Innocent people will be rendered jobless because of few individuals.

this is the work of one devil auditor Obbie Gondwe under the demonic inspiration of his devilish god Gerald Bowler. there could be fuel shortages at this station but the figures are far much exaggerated, very. that is what chubuku is good at, exaggerating shortages just to implicate innocent hardworking individuals. This company exploits its workers like nobody’s business. it tries to create a rosy corporate image but deep inside u will find Israelites in Egypt, kuphula njerwa zamoto. apart from a few top management, the rest of Malawians here are extremely exploited. it is headed by foreigners who don’t… Read more »
