Nyasa Times reported on Sunday that Police in Lilongwe arrested Mussa and Munthali on allegations that they stole computers and gensets at the Ministry.

National Police spokesperson James Kadadzera confirmed the arrest of the two.

According to Kadadzera, the equipment, 10 desktop computers and three gensets, was a donation from the Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA) made in 2019.

The suspects on Monday appeared  before  Lilongwe Magistrate court  where they were formally charged.

Through their lawyers, they applied for bail but making his ruling,  Senior Resident Magistrate Vice Nyimba  refused to release them to allow State to complete its investigations.

Nyimba has since given State 7 days to complete its investigations.

They two are expected to answer several charges including theft by public servant.

We used to say about Chisale and people used to dismiss it that Chisale was going about town fleecing Indians. Now we are saying about Sidik Mia and Richard Chimwendo Banda and people are dismissing. Richard Banda is going around all Indians who have issues to give him money so that he should influence their cases. While Mia is said to be getting kick backs from contractors promising them that he will influence payment of their arrears and one such company is motol Angel

Please whisper in Musa’s ear that only heroes and not villains display handcuffs when arrested. Musa is selfcentred and a habitual thief and unworthy of seeking sympathy from the people he stole from.
Apparently the computers/gensets theiving is only one of the so many things he stole from government. There is the issue of the artificial turf from Kamuzu Stadium which ended up in Chiradzulu instead of the Zingwangwa Youth Centre.
The man is a good-for-nothing. Send him to jail.

The coat which Mussa is wearing is too long and therefore not ideal for prison cell life. You have to use a pail (ndowa) to relieve oneself in the cell. So, chi coat chatalika udyo ichi, if you know what I mean…

The untouchables are on their knees. Henry Mussa who never understood the pain DPP caused in others. There will be demonstrations on his behalf against a “corrupt judiciary”. For too long the guy has been part and parcel of a corrupt DPP system the swamp is being drained before his very eyes. Your spouse is shortly entering the arena where she will be wriggling out of the financial mess at the embassy a rich corrupt banjo. How are the hotel services in Lilongwe especially Maula?

While we are on this, what happened to Rosa Mbilizi and the mwenye in the Chisale cement saga? I just hope nobody is playing any monkey business here. I say this because I heard that Mbilizis brother, who is in the katapila business, is owed a huge amount of money by one of the senior ministers and it is this senior minister who is protecting Mbilizi.. If this is true, then you better put a stop to all the other arrests because no Malawian is interested in any selective and biased application of justice. All we want is a cleaning… Read more »

Mbilizi ‘s issue is water under the bridge as MIA is shielding her . Because of the Katapila issue and the MRA deals..

Very sad and embarrassing images for a once upon a time “senior” cabinet minister. I do hope that the current “senior” and powerful ministers are picking necessary lessons from this.
