Businessman Gaffar decry Malawi police laxity over his stolen car

A Limbe based businessman whose Toyota Corolla vvti car was stolen at gun point two weeks ago in Limbe, says he is concerned over failure by police to intensify the recovering exercise for his car.



Mohamed Gaffar who own Executive Security Company, had his car a white Toyota Corolla registration number LA6060 stolen at around 6pm on Monday near Sikh Temple in Limbe where he and his wife went to visit a friend near 24/7 Auction.

He told Nyasa Times soon after he reported the matter to Limbe police that the police there told him that he should provide them with a car they can use to look for the thieves. He did not provide.

However, Gaffar has told Nyasa Times that there is no indication that the police are doing something to track his stolen car.

“But I have been receiving reports from friends that my car has been spotted twice within Blantyre. One petrol attendant told me the robbers who had attacked one of the filling stations in Blantyre last week were using my car but with a different registration number,” he said.

Gaffar also said at one point last week he saw the robbers driving the very same car they used to highjack his car but his chase after them ended in vain.

“I have been reporting all the development to the police the only answers they tell me is that they are doing something about it”.

However, he says life has been hard for him because he is using a hired car which he says is very expensive.

Limbe Police spokesperson Sub- Inspector Chifundo Kansunje told Nyasa Times that it is not true that police asked for a vehicle from Gaffar, saying the department that deals with stolen vehicles has already a vehicle for that purpose.

“I think he referred the matter to the wrong department because at the anti-motor theft department there is vehicle special for that,” she said.

Kansunje also said police are doing everything possible to make sure that the stolen vehicle is recovered.

“We are now following the tips that people have been giving us on the stolen vehicle.  He may not know exactly how we are doing this because police do things in their own way. But if his claims that the car was spotted twice in Blantyre he should bring that information to the police through the office of police officer in charge,” she said

But Gaffar said he has already furnished the information to the relevant authorities at Limbe Police and what he is now waiting for is positive feedback.

His car with a different number plate? So how sure was he that this car was his? He mean he is the only person who can own that car in Malawi? Anyway we don’t encourage theft.


Gaffar, dont rely on Malawi police. they are the ones who masterminded the theft. Malawi police are thieves and you know it. believe you me


Gaffer must be stupid,because itsyour car then you want the whole police to stop everything they are doing for a search of your car. You know your car and hijackers but failled to catch them after you spoted them. How do you expect Police who relie on the information only to do that within days. Who doesnt know that you sold it and want insurance. Go and report to that fuel attendant to cath them for u. Stupid Gaffer.

Kulibe kantu

If you want to recover the car quickly mount ad hoc road blocks. You will catch them.


Our police personel all they do is eat mmemo.


Police please help the weak and lazy gentleman, walemba alonda ambilri ntchito ameneyu.
Koma Gaffar ufufuze galimotoyo wekha. Wagulisa dala imeneyi.
