Central region police publicist Ramsy Mushani confirmed the arrest of six high powered justice administration Ncheu officials.

The arrest is an embarrassment and set back to the provision of justice in Ntcheu and the fight against indian hemp growing and trafficking.

Sources say the hemp – localy known as Chamba -was impounded early December at an adhoc road block at Bawi in Ntcheu.

One person was convicted and fined K170000 or in default 14 months IHL.

Nyasa Times source says the Chamba was then supposed to be burnt but when regional police officers came to destroy the hemp, they were told it was already burnt but the district officials failed to show where the burning took place and some people gave testimony that they were being offered for sale.

All I can say is ligarise Ganja instead of homalsexual. All this problem will not be there,people will never stop using Ganja.


The only way to get out of this problem is to ligarise it. If I was to choose between Ganja and homalsexual, I would choose Ganja.Set Ganja business free and there will be no more bullshit.

this is a tip of an iceberg….a lot more is happening in the judiciary. the corraboration between magistrates and prosecutors has reached a point you can not describe. people talk about traffic police but prosecutors are the worst. our jails would be overflowing if there was justice in malawi! criminals are let loose everyday….and the judiciary is almost untouchable. the most rotten country in southern africa…malawi!
