National police spokesperson Rhoda Manjolo told a local radio on Tuesday that the officers who were guarding the site last month, allegedly went away with iron sheets and welding machine last month.

“Yes the officers have been arrested after authorities at the site lodged a complaint over the missing equipment,” she says declined to mention the names saying this would jeopardize ongoing investigations.

Statistics show that the arrest of the ten now brings to 16 the number of police officers arrested within a month on allegation of theft after four were arrested in Chitipa and two in Mangochi.
