Police arrest 23 people over FISP, Admarc maize

Police  in the south have arrested 23 people in offences in connection with corrupt practices on farm inputs programme and the buying of maize at Admarc depots.

However, the effort is being thwarted by courts which are meting out fines as lower as K10, 000 per offence.

Crime prevention desk officer for the police in the south George Pindeni however said the police will not relent but will continue to effect arrests on those suspected to be involved in the malprace.

Some admarc officials are conniving with vendors to sell fertillizer meant for farm in put programme.

Two days ago, the pollice in Kasungu recovered some fertilizer from a graveyard where vendors had hidden and on Thursday a lady clerk for a private trader in Kasungu was arrested after he was caught selling the fertilizer to a businessman.

Over K1m was recovered from her and some bags of fertilizer were recovered from the businessman.

Pindeni said last week the number of the arrested stood at 16 and the number is now 23 this week.

He said the police is having the joint operation with officials from ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Union of Malawi.

Pindeni said the most affected districts are Blantyre, Chiradzulu, Phalombe, Thyolo, Mulanje.
