Two Malawi police officers arrested for robbing Zambian woman

Two police officers, constable Moses Chikopa and detective Henry Mwanza, have been arrested in Malawi’s central region district of Mchinji for allegedly stealing about MK1.2million from a Zambian trader Mrs. Grace Nyirongo last Friday.

The cops allegedly solicited the money to save her from being arrested for illegal possession of rhino horns.

Mchinji police station public relations officer sub-inspector Moses Kajawa Nyirenda told Nyasa Times that the two are currently in police custody and currently the police has so far managed to recover K271, 000 which he said will be used as exhibit in the court.

Police sources said the two are said to have robbed the Zambian woman when she was returning to her country.

“After reaching Mwami border 10-kilometers from Mchinji boma, she was stopped by Constable Moses Chikopa and detective Henry Mwanza for them to check what was in her baggage in which they found horns for rhinos.”

The sources said this forced the police officers to demand money from the woman to set her free – who obliged by giving them $2,300 and ZMK500.

But Nyirongo later reported the matter to Zambia police who advised her to report the matter to Mchinji police station where investigation was launched and led to the arrest of the two officers.

The Mchinji police spokesperson Kajawa says investigations are underway to establish whether the rhino horns were genuine.
