Kapanga: Face fraud rap

Deputy national spokesperson for the police Tomeck Nyaude said on Wednesday the police will follow the 48 hour law to bring a suspect to the court of law.

“We are mindful of this law and we will bring her to the court or release her according to the law, we are a law abiding institution,” he said.

Kapanga still remains on full remand at Lilongwe Police Station.

She is alleged to have stolen the K300 million within a period of 12 months in collaboration with other members of staff including those from the accounts department.

At least three officials from the embassy have been interdicted on allegations that they were blocking officials from the National Audit Office.

The government has recalled High Commissioner from Zambia, David Bandawe and Ambassador from Japan, Reuben Ngwenya on allegations that they abused huge sums of tax payers money from their respective embassies.

The prosecuting agencies and the police are yet to arrest the two diplomats who are now back to Malawi.
