Malawi Police in Ntchisi district have arrested four people including an Admarc official and a police officer on suspicion that they connived to steal 100 bags of subsidy fertilizer and hand them to a vendor who had bribed the four with a sum of K375,000.

Ntchisi Police Public Relations Officer Gladson M’bumpha identified the suspects as driver Dalitso Chafikila, 36, Admarc unit marketing officer for Msumba Admarc George Kambwiri, 56, police officer at VIP branch in Lilongwe, Sub-inspector Stephen Katundu, and the vendor Chikondi Kalulu, 34.

arrestedM’bumpha said that the Admarc manager for Ntchisi and Dowa, Yasinta Nora Jere, reported to police after realizing that a motor vehicle registration number BU 3009 belonging to Apita investment which was carrying 300 bags subsidy fertilizer meant for Mzandu and Nsinda Admarc depots was diverted to Msumba Admarc depot where it only offloaded 200 bags of fertilizer.

The suspects then took the remaining 100 bags to the vendor’s shop where they offloaded them.

According to M’bumpha, the vendor gave the Admarc official K175,000, the truck driver K130,000, the police officer K50,000 and an assistant driver K20,000.

Member of Parliament for the area Honourable Kalima alerted Admarc officials who started their own investigations and discovered the discrepancy.

The Admarc officials reported the matter to police who arrested the four after investigations and Kambwiri admitted to have been involved in the bribery.

Chafikila hails from Chizuka village T/A Mtema in Lilongwe, George Kambwiri from Nankhako village T/A Mtema in Lilongwe and Chikondi Kalulu hails from, Ndendere village T/A Chikho in Ntchisi.
