]Police in Blantyre are hunting for three unknown men who on Monday this week ambushed Malawi Sun hotel’s employees and robbed them cash amounting to K6 million.
The incident happened at National Bank of Malawi head office adjacent to Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM) offices in the town of Blantyre, as the employees were about to make deposit.
Blantyre Police Public Relations Officer, Elizabeth Divala told Nyasa Times they are currently hunting for the unknown criminals who were armed with pistols.
“They (criminals) in Toyota Corolla tailed the Malawi Sun hotel vehicle in which the employees- a driver and accountant- were traveling in. They blocked the vehicle, threatened the two with pistols before making away with the cash,” explained Divala.
The robbery incident is one of the cases to have rocked the country lately, and in most instances Malawians take the law into their own hands by scorching to death the suspected muggers.
