Police in Mzuzu are keeping in custody 36-year old Noah Kayira for selling and being found in possession medical drugs, including ARVs, suspected to have been stolen from a government hospital.
Mzuzu Police publicist Martin Bwanali “confirmed” the development saying they made the arrest Thursday after an anonymous tip.
Bwanali said they “recovered a lot of drugs from his house” but could not immediately say how much they were worth.
He said they were currently keeping Kayira in custody, adding the suspect would appear in court soon to answer “a case of illegal possession of medical drugs without a license.”
According to Bwanali, a search led by Detective Assistant Superintendent Mndala is one that nailed down Kayira.
Nyasa Times sources said Kayira has been involved in the malpractice for a long time now, and plies his trade in the township of Chibavi.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
