Malawi Police arrest Indian businessperson Chunara over cement-gate!

Malawi Police Services  in Lilongwe have arrested a businessperson, Shafee Ahmed Chunara, in connection with ongoing investigations into a batch of cement worth about K5 billion  (about $7 million) that was imported duty free using former president Peter Mutharika’s tax-free status.

National police spokesperson James Kadadzera has confirmed  that the suspect is being held at Lingadzi police.

Last week police also questioned Chunara, owner of Prestige Imports and Exports, on the cement deal.

He reportedly implicated  personal bodyguard to the former president Peter Mutharika, Norman Chisale,  who was also arrested on the matter.

It takes two to tango, the only way he got away with this is because he was supported by BLACK MALAWIANS. so by pointing out his race you’re just fueling hate. What he did was wrong and he has rightfully been arrested but I’m sure I can point out quite a few black ministers that have also been involved in fraud and I hope when they got caught you specify that they are BLack just like you did in this article.

Go worry about your own problems in Somalia and stop generalizing about everyone. Somalians are the biggest thieves in the world.

Arrest all these Indians who are messing up Malawi and lock them up for eternity! They have grown balls and have no respect for indigenous Malawians. They are corrupt and brag over ill-gotten gains and mock indigenous Malawians for being poor. Leaders got do something about this. Idi Amin had a good point.

Nothing to Celebrate. He was arrested because people had complained. And why not arrest him on a Friday so that he spends the weekend in the cells . He will be out on bail on Tuesday noon.
