Mphande, who has been at large for a year , was involved in a recent accident at Linthipe as he was heading to Tanzania with his colleague to pick cars.

He was identified whilst admitted at Dedza district hospital and his ex-boss was notified following a K1 million reward that the employer offered.

The boss did not hesitate but to fly to Malawi to see the man that has been on the run for over a year.

Police say they will take Mphande to  court soon after being discharged and he is expected to answer the charge of theft

Am I missing something here!! the crime happened in South Africa and Malawi Police want to take the guy to a Malawi court??? come on!! Malawi Police what are you smoking? the guy has not broken any law in Malawi. He can only be tried in a South African court where the crime was committed. Please advise the white dude to go open a criminal case in South Africa
