44

Machinga police have seized 65 bags of maize from vendors in the district after receiving a tip that one Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (ADMARC) official was illegally selling the grain to the traders.

Police in the district have since arrested 34 year-old Felix Mponda, an official at Nanyumbu ADMARC depot.

PoliceIn an interview with Malawi24, Machinga police publicist, Davie Sulumba said they received a tip from people on 22 March this year that Mponda sold maize in bulk to vendors.

“We conducted an investigation to the said Admarc and it was confirmed that maize was being sold at K7, 000 per bag,” Sulumba said.

Sulumba further told this publication that they have since arrested two suspected vendors in connection with the illegal deals and the suspects are waiting for court proceedings to defend themselves.

“We would like to warn vendors to stop buying maize in the ADMARC depots, as the police will not watch them doing such malpractice as they will face the law,” Sulumba explained.

Mponda who was until his arrest was a buyer at Nanyumbu ADMARC deport will answer charges of abuse of office contrary to section 95 of the penal code.

He hails from Ng’andu village in the area of traditional authority Ngokwe in the district.

  1. Give back their maize, just arrest ADMARC officials if it is right to do so. How do you define “illegal buying”? What is it? The only problem is the shortage of the commodity.
