Blantyre business magnate robbed car, calls for help

A businessman of Lebanese origin, Jalal Jawad, plying plastic manufacturing trade in Malawi’s commercial capital Blantyre Monday night had his car – a VVTI Corolla registration number MJ 6648 – robbed by unidentified armed robbers and has since called on Malawians to help him trace it.

Jawad, of ATC Industry Limited in Limbe, told Nyasa Times that his misfortune is his second in barely two months.

“About a month ago armed robbers followed me at my home in Mpingwe during lunch hour and took away money amounting to K600 000 [which I had intended to deposit] and my car keys,” said Jawad.

He said he had reported the matter to the police but his money has not been recovered yet.

“Today [Monday] I was going home again when they followed me to my yard, pointed their guns at me and asked for money,” Jawad narrated. “I told them I don’t have money and they took my car, phones and wallet.”

Jawad, who has been doing business in the country for the last six years consecutively but his brothers have been in the country for over 20 years, called on Malawians to help him get his car back.

“Please help me publish the story so that the Malawi government knows that my car is missing,” he said.

Much as he had reported the matter to police in Blantyre, Jawad said, he was optimistic that the country’s citizens would be of greater help in providing leads that would get his car back.

He can be reached on 0999406080.

These syndicates involve the police who are supposed to combat crime and protect citizen, reporting them is just a mere waste of time, I don’t blame people who resort to taking the law into their own hands as it seem to continuously to fail them. Lets put all our faith to the mighty God for his divine intervention.


The gap between the rich and the poor is just too much……
