The incident occurred on Sunday 22nd January, 2017 in Blantyre town, and at meantime police are hunting for a third suspect who is currently on the run.

They broke into Super General Trading shop owned by Aijaz Khan.

 The suspects were using a one-tonne Mazda registration ZA 8447.

“They transported the stolen items from Blantyre to Kameza where all cartons were delivered to the house of the second suspect (Somanje). The second suspect connived with the guard who also took his share and disappeared and investigations are in progress to arrest him,” added Divala.

 The stolen items were recovered.

Wrong information. Malisawo was hired to transfer the stolen items from the hidden point (Kameza round about) to a house in Machinjiri area 1.
Malisawo never took part in the break in.
