Kasipa was arrested in Blantyre on Wednesday night.

An eyewitness, who did not want to be named, reported seeing police  at Kasipa’s home to search.

Blantyre Police Station, according to the station’s spokesperson Elizabeth Divala confimed to Nyasa Times that Kasipa is being held and police are investigating the matter.

He was picked on allegations that he acted as a middlemen in a firearm deal.

Kasipa was allegedly used as an agent to find a buyer for the firearm which is connected to fours suspects police are keeping.

According to police, Kaspa was contacted a Blantyre based businessman to source a gun for him. He managed to get the unlicensed  gun from Dumisani Mvula and  Chipiliro Gombwa.

Police says gun related crimes are on the rise in Malawi. Hadly a night goes by without reports of an armed robbery.

Poverty has adversely contributed to these crimes, even the badly paid police officers are sometimes aiding the criminals by providing arms to them.

  • Matter of fact: We had erroneously mentioned Blessings Mvula earlier in the article but it is Dumisani Mvula. The editor regret the error.

Please let us avoid vilifying innocent people.… Read more »
