Police investigate ‘theft’ of Mtambo official vehicle

Malawi Police say they have upped investigations into the theft of Minister of National Unity and Civic Education minister Timothy Mtambo official vehicle.

Mtambo’s car

Mtambo’s driver was  allegedly kidnapped in an attempted car theft case.

This happened Wednesday night.

According to Mtambo, his driver was kidnapped around 8 pm last night between Daeyang and MIM junction in Lilongwe by four people who were armed and in police uniform.

Mtambo said he suspects the carjackers wanted to attack him.

The vehicle was later found abandoned at Bwengu in Rumphi after it was involved in a road accident midnight, where surrounding communities managed to rescue the driver who had his arms and legs tied.

Malawians have a problem thus what I can say as of now.I dont think that Mtambo can act in any way. What I seeing now is jealousy as why Mtambo is a Minister. You wanted AMANU to be a Minister? For your information Mtambo’s department has done so well in terms of Civic education and we now people there who are not doing badly but the President will make his assessment in March and this not an issue and the President has to do it. A Malawi bvuto lanu ndi chiyani kodi?

You can tell the story doest add up. 8 pm to midnight is 4 hours a very well trained driver takes 3 hours to Mzuzu during the day. This car was “hijacked” at night and they went Mzuzu to Bwengu in,4 hours? Even if the car was full tank which it can’t be at that hour,they needed to refuel either within Lilongwe,Mponela Madisi or Kasungu and no one suspected something was wrong? These must have been well prepared hijackers with enough cash for fuel to take them to Tanzania. Carjacking is a crime of opportunity,jackers are opportunists. This was no… Read more »

Can you please correct your ‘mask’. It’s m’samaonetsa and NOT ‘nsamaonetsa’. Mukufuna kutukwanitsa atumbukafetu apa, nzeru n’zabwino koma galamala wochewa odakuvutanitu apa. Awa!

All he wants is to get sympathy from the president because he knows that cabinet assessment is coming up soon and he really hasn’t performed well besides “making frameworks” and no tangible results. His ministry is tasked to educate people but how many actually wear masks to fight the pandemic in villages.. Zero!

Seems there is something fishy. Probably the vehicle carried prohibited items hence the staged drama.The ministerial cars are tinted and cannot be searched more especially when the flag is raised.

Mtambo’s is just trying to test the professionalism of our police. Remember that during his demos he used to disrespect and disregard the police. He did the same twice during his demonstration time and to his word the police really failed to investigate. This is reason good enough for Chakwera to drop him. Ma road block onsewa at night and the police just saluting the car.

So the vehicle was actually heading to the minister’s home village in Chitipa. Is this carjacking or theft by servant? What is there to investigate?
By the end of five years there will be more drama in this country than we ever imagined. Kenako timva kuti Lexus ya mkango yabedwa ndipo a police akufufuza
