Armed robbers’ mission fails in Nkhatabay

48

Armed robbers who attacked Nkhatabay Puma filling station failed to accomplish their intended mission after police in the district intervened in time.

According to information sourced from Miss Mickness Mkandawire who is the Manageress for the filling station, at around 12:30AM, three criminals who were armed with panga knives and breaking implements attacked the watchman who was on duty and tied him with ropes.

Mkandawire further said that after the watchman was tied, the robbers then cut the office roof and went inside where they attempted to break the cash chest but they failed.

This was happening whilst another watchman was away and when he came back he was also attacked but he managed to escape and informed the police who responded in time and went to the scene.

With the escaping of the other watchman, the robbers sensed danger and left the scene leaving behind craw-bars, cutters, panga knives, snapers, hacksaw and screwdriver.

Meanwhile, Ignatius Esau who is Nkhatabay Police Public Relations Officer has said that investigations to trace the culprits are currently underway and has called upon anyone having any information about the robbers to report to police.

    • Micheal Mkandawire! stop ur cunningness, u hv completly misd de story. ur comment is out of context, u hv commented on something not found in de story. Don’t cheat yourself that u r competent enough in English, u hv a very poor grammer. it would sound better if u wrote “u r competent whn it comes to English” not “whn it come to English”. Revist Verb & Subject agreement again!

    • Ok i get it. This is social network. Don’t take coments personally, u wil just get emotional. I have just gone thru the post. It sounded like the suspects were arrested of which they were not. I wil be happy if u can point out what i have missed in the post. I understand that most of Malawians are not good in english. I understand its a second language. 4 me i went to school which we speak english everytime at school. I guarantee u that i am really competant when it come to english language in which i am holding (B). Instead of specifying what i missed in the post. I dont c a reason to say *this is english. Plz i wil be happy if u specify or the person who posted missed the point. Plz help

  4. Ndi ana amenewo, kwa America akuba akati ikamati 5 minutes tikakhale titamaliza, amaterodi, palibe nthawi yoti mpaka kukumana ndi a Polisi. Within 3 minutes zimakhala zitatenga ma million zathawa, osati mpaka kusilila tea wapa moto! Lol!

    • Jevas Tryce Gwayi Luhanga, akuwuza ndani kuti ndikusapota mbava? Chomwe ndimatanthawuza ndichakuti musasangalale kwambiri ndi a Police pa nkhani chifukwa mawa muzadabwa zitachitika pa 3 minutes!

    • Come on guys don’t be unreasonable. Look Malawi is a nation which is counted a low crime rate country. Fact is yes we have crime but it is not that bad than other countries. We don’t have ID, that show its a peace country. Of which if u look other countries eg Suid Afrika, a policeman works under risk of life &death. They alway respond to crime like hijack, cash heist, arm robbery which is dangerous. That just makes us see that our police are much better and safer. We are not saying that they are useless but we are just comparing, so stop being fussy on social network.
