The three were caught and arrested in what is termed a raid, which had followed a series of intensive investigations according to Lilongwe Police Public Relations Officer, Kingsley Dandaula who confirmed the arrests.

“We have also retrieved three laptops, and an IPhone along with seven laptop bags which contained tire threads (linya) which we believe is what they use to tie up security guards,” said Dandaula adding,

“They were also in possession of two brand new panga knives, a crowbar and two big torches.”

A gang of robbers had stormed and broken into Muluzi’s house on the night of Friday, November 7, 2014 and went away with bundles of cash money among others.

According to Dandaula, after the break-in into the energy minister’s house, locations of Area 9, and Area 3 had been hit by a succession of robbery attacks which prompted the police to intensify security around the area.

Of the three, one Kennedy Phiri, 26, from Chikalamu village Traditional Authourity (T/A) Khongoni in Lilongwe district, who resided in Area 22 of the city and another is Imulani Mapira, 28, from Moses village in T/A Mposa, Machinga district, a resident of Area 36.

The third, 24 year old Ronald Talawula is from Saimoni village T/A Saimoni in Neno was a resident of Falls location in the city.

The three suspects join 29 year old Paul Waison who was arrested earlier in relation to the same and the four will soon appear before court to answer a charge of robbery with violence contrary to section 301 of the penal code.

Would like to commend the police for a job well done. However would like to join the others who have observed that the police can not act with such speed when ordinary Malawians face the same fate. There are Many Malawians who have been robbed motorcycles, computers etc but have lived every day with high expectations about the recovery of there goods, alas nothing has come forth. Police please note you are paid from tax money paid by even the so called ordinary Malawians. Remember the book animal farm. Wake up for God had observed these things for too long.

As usual I commend Malawi Police for the job well done. i wish such efforts were not only for ministers and high level people in the society. The police should not neglect, ignore and off course connive with criminals when cases are reported by ordinary citizens. Please, please, please Malawi Police we pray that you keep up with good sacrificial efforts to net all these BAD people in our loved country. These caught know most of their friends!!!
