According to Mangochi Police spokesperson Rodrick Maida, the gang which comprised 12 men  invaded the council offices on the midnight of Thursday.

PoliceDuring its operation, the gang broke into 10 offices, including the District Commissioner’s office and stole K473,000 cash, K24,000 worth of airtime vouchers, five laptops, one laptop bag and Master’s and Bachelor’s degree certificates in Public Administration belonging to the District Commissioner  [Jack Nguluwe] and four promotion letters.
