Man arrested for being found with Rands worth K4 million

190

Malawi Police at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) in Lilongwe have arrested a man for trying to leave the country with forex that had no supporting documents.

Lufeyo Chitukukula was arrested on 18th January around 12:30pm for attempting to externalise forex.

South African RandMalawi24 understands that the suspect was about to board SAA 171 plane to South Africa when he found himself in hands of the law enforcers.

Reports indicate that he was searched by police officer upon arrival at the departures lounge. It was in his luggage where the police found South African Rands worth about K4 million.

However, Chitukula failed to produce supporting documents forcing the police to arrest him. He is currently in police custody while the money has been seized.

Chitukula will therefore appear before court soon to answer two accounts: attempt to externalise foreign currency and illegal possession of foreign currency without ministry of finance approval.

Attempting to transfer currency is contrary to section 11 of Exchange Control Act of the Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM), whereas illegal possession of foreign currency is contrary to section 25 of Exchange Control Act.

The suspect hails from Tsanulani Village, TA Njolomole in Ntcheu and he is 35 years-old.

  18. umbuli uzatha liti ku Malawi ma comments oukila police kusaziwa malamulo kapena umphawi.Enanu muli kunja kwa malawi chifukwa chani mumakadindisa ma passport ku bank I thought we all understastands the development but it seems civic education on our laws is needed.he must face the laws no possesion of foreign currents without proper documents

  19. Ndalamazo anazipeza via black market bcoz he had no supporting documents. If u do business u need to have a foreign currency account with the reserve bank nde ukamatuluka amakuikila mu passport mwako. Failing which then its a serious offence and I ask MRA kut ifufuze business yamkuluyu i hope he even invades tax akuoneka ndiwachidule kwambiri

  20. inu ndinu dzitsilu ee kodi anthu asamakhale ndi ndalama akamachoka kunja kuba kwanuko mudzafa osauka kupusa kungonvano kurti kuli njala

  21. Ahaha but guys i think education is very important looking at these comments its sad. Nobody is allowed to leave malawi with more than 5000$ and especially if he does not have a currency control stump in his wallet there is no country in the word tgat would let any one carry that much money out of the country thus is a crime because cash is un traceable when didnt he send the money through the bank all would have been ok but that money is too much it needs to be investigated the police did a very good job in uprehending him

  22. Zausilu nsanje basi a police akumalawi umboniumboni wachani mwamva kuti kumalawiko kubank kwabedwa ma rands mpaseni ndiwabizines amaneyo kuteloko mwamuonongola nthawi ndegiso yamuthawa. Basi mukufuna ndalama zamunthu muyendesele zikolanulo ministry of health mukagulire mapanodo eti

  23. What a rubish is that?? How can burutarity police arrested the man because of his money. Did they know how he straggled to get that money? Are they done with cash gate or not? Some of the people in Malawi they do have more than 10 million pounds why they should get arrested that man he must realesed from the cell he didn’t nothing wrong he must get out from the hands of the hell police and go to enjoy his money. Fuck the government and the police bravo!!!! Man

  24. Uwu ndiye ndiuchitsiruno sopano mukumumangila chani munthuyo? Mwamugwira kut ndalamazo anachita chokuba/chani agalu inu kudontha basi wake up Fuck them Mw Cops mxxit

  25. Looking at the comments, one can learn a lot. Everywhere in the world there are policies that regulate foreign currency and there are limits. Don’t just look at the Rand value, consider the Kwacha value of the said amount as well. How did he manage to change all that and what is it going to be used for. Abale tiyeni tilikonde dzikoli; ndi lathu. Sanatisungitse anthu ena.

  26. U must leave that person alone with his cash, everywhere on earth every person has the right to move with foreign currency. Dont restrict pple in that way, tym is money he has alot of things to encounter.
