“It seems this man has a lot of computer knowledge and was hacking computers to steal from people using the name of the State house

“This is being a very sensitive matter, we cannot divulge more  information now. But investigations are still on going. We will give more details to you when investigations are through”, the deputy police chief is quoted by The Nation, Malawi’s daily.

If computer hackers have reached the extent of entering into the state house, then one can deduce to say that there is minimal security in this country. I guess the one should be amongst those who are very close or within the cumpass.Mention the name of the suspect, then crue would be given. Hackers are dangerous since important government infomation could be unveiled to the aleins.
