Kadam’manja, who is also Nyasa Big Bullets FC  supporters  committee treasurer, is not a first offender in possession of chamba but was previously let scot free because he was at one time among the security detail of the ruling party  to  Minister responsible for Disaster Management Affairs, Everton Chimulirenji.

Salima Police spokesperson, Jacob Khembo, said they arrested Kadam’manja in the early hours of Monday .

Khembo said Kadam’manja packed chamba in a minibus, which he was allegedly transporting from Dwangwa, Nkhotakota District, to Blantyre.

He said police  arrested Kadam’manja after mounting a roadblock at Mlamba area on M5 Road, which connects Salima and Balaka.

“Upon acting on a tip-off, we mounted a roadblock and when the vehicle reached the roadblock, the search was done where we found the hemp,” Khembo said.

Meanwhile, Khembo said the suspect was taken to Salima Second Magistrate’s Court where he was granted bail.

He is answering a charge of allegedly being found in possession of Indian hemp contravening Section 19(1) of the Dangerous Drug Act.

The Indian hemp will be taken to Chitedze Research for certification.

Kadam’manja hails from Munjiwa Traditional Authority Machinjiri, Blantyre.

Very huge possibility that the DPP is trying to ‘diversify’ their sources of income. With all the heat on their butts it might be getting tougher by the day to have access to government coffers – with their money launderers like Mpinganjira facing probes for bribery?? Just a tip of the iceberg. The guy having gotten away scott free the first time around just shows something bigger at play. Just a thought.
