Inu a Paty, I don’t understand your question. To me the article is clear. The receptionist had his/her mobile phone stolen. The rest – digital camera, laptop, power bank, cash – belonged to the American. Or maybe you understand the article to be saying that the receptionist had items worth K5.2m and $100 cash in his/ her office? In Malawi? Seriously?


Yaa. Got it!


What are the items stollen from the American? The headline doesnt depict receptionist being robbed.
