Malawi Police officers rejected a bribe from drug dealers

187

Malawi Police officers at Dunduzu police unit in Mzuzu purportedly rejected a bribe of about MK80,000 opting instead to apprehend two thieves who were caught with various drugs worth millions of Kwacha.

The two suspects had stolen the drugs from hospitals across the northern region. Sources alleged that before they were caught, the two had already managed to bribe some police officers and cross some roadblocks with the drugs.

When they reached Dunduzu roadblock, they met ethical police officers who nabbed them for being found in possession of the hospital drugs.

In a bid to rescue themselves, they told the officers that they were ready to give them MK80,000. The officers declined the offer and insisted on arresting them now on two counts: one for trying to bribe police officers and the other for being found in possession of drugs without relevant documents.

Northern region police publicist Sergeant Maurice Chapola identified the pair as Chimwemwe Chibankhuni and Simeon Mwenesulu.

He said the two have since been sentenced to six years imprisonment for the offences . In a related development, three medics have been arrested in Chitipa for aiding a drug thief to steal various drugs across health facilities in the district.

The trio have been identified as Owen Mnyenyembe, Fanson Kathonga and Waukile Mkhondya. Police say they managed to arrest them after the drug thief revealed that the three were involved.

“The other dealer identified as Jacob Msiska who is currently behind bars helped us with information leading to the arrest of the three,” said the police.

Meanwhile, the three are expected to appear before court to answer charges of aiding the stealing of drugs.

Records indicate that the practice of stealing drugs is fast becoming rampant in the country despite several government efforts to curb the malpractice.
