The law enforcers have also impounded a truck full of minerals mined from Kapiri hills.

Rumphi police public relations officer Ulemu Kalua identified the Malawian as 36-year-old James Tembo.

Kalua said Tembo had a mining licence which he obtained as a government mining consultant and took advantage of this to abuse the licence to help the Chinese mine the minerals from the hills.

“They used heavy machines to mine the minerals,” said Kalua.

He said the suspects are expected to appear before court on Monday.

As we have said for the upteenth time, Atumbuka dhyerra too much. Can you sell your your own country and your own people assets to the stupid Chinese while your fellow Tumbukas of Kapiri wallow in poverty? What a foolish tribe.
