Malawians have commended the work done by the Police in the northern City of Malawi, Mzuzu for working hand in hand with community members to make a condussive environment for all citizens.
This commendment comes after another successive work done by men and women in uniform after recovering a vehicle which was stolen by two men identified as Ephraim Jere and Kingsley Ngwira earlier this month.
Confirming this successful operation to News Watch Reviews, Mzuzu Deputy Police relations officer, Cecilia Mfune said the recovered motor vehicle, Toyota Vits with registration number BT 959, belongs to Martha Chawinga and was being used as a taxi.
“Earlier this month, the mentioned vehicle was hired by the two suspects to Ekwendeni where they attacked the taxi’s driver before fleeing with the vehicle”, said Cecilia.
She added, “the matter was later reported to Mzuzu Police Station who launched intensive investigations which led to the arrest of the two in Blantyre as they were trying to sell it to an Indian”.
The two suspects are now in Police custody and they will appear before the court of law to answer the charge of robbery contrary to section 301 of the penal code.
The suspects, Jere 35, hails from Phokesa Village while Ngwira, 32, is from Nasho Village, both under Traditional Authority (TA) Mthwalo in Mzimba district.
