Court sends 4 to jail for Bata shoe shop break during protests

A court in Mzuzu has sentenced four men to six years imprisonment with hard labour for breaking and looting into a Bata Shoe company shop during the anti-Jane Ansah protests.

Bata shoe shop was looted in Mzuzu during demos

The Mzuzu magistrates’ court heard that the company lost K9.5 million in the process as the thugs masquerading as protestors looted the shop.

However, senior resident magistrate Godfrey Nyirenda acquitted the other two suspects.

Police arrested 11 people in connection with the breaking and looting of the shop in Mzuzu during the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) sanctioned protests.

The four convicts are Moses Zqala, 20, Rodgers Chavula, 24, Bernard Sibale, 22 and Aubrey Mkandawire, 24 all from Mzimba except Sibale who comes from Rumphi.

Why not arrest the owners for failing to organize their demos.I’s not understandable.When the same happens to others ,the blame goes to the leaders but the same happens Mtambo and Chwera’s people the blame goes either to individuals or akuti makadets leaving the organizers.Is this what our universities are teaching?Are parents spending their money to pay fees inoder to teach their kids to be lowless and how to destroy properties?Is the one who died in Karonga and those arrested Cadets?

Demos are not a problem, but the looting and criminality is what us law abiding citizens detest.

Good work our state!
We are waiting for more arrests and sentencing for these scum bugs, disgruntled losers. After you have arrested these small fishes, finally arrest the chief loser and looter, Mtambo, that piece of low life.
