Police in Kasungu have arrested Daniel Kakhwesi, 27, for stealing money from a woman after lying that he could secure a place at a public college for her son.

Kasungu police deputy public relations officer said between November and December the suspect got K248,000 from the woman identified as Mariam Mataula.

Namwaza said the suspect went to the complainant’s shop where he introduced himself as a clinical officer at Kasungu district hospital.

During the course of their conversation, Mataula told the suspect that her son has an MSCE but he is just staying at home.

“When the suspect heard this he told the complainant that he could help her son find a place at Malawi College of Health Sciences as he has a relative working there,” he said.

When the woman agreed, the suspect said he needed to take the boy to Blantyre where they would meet the person facilitating the deal.

But before leaving, the suspect demanded some cash to carter for food and a laptop for the son to be using in his studies.

Arrested.The woman gave Kakhwesi money amounting to K248,000 for the laptop and the other expenses.

Kakhwesi later took the young man to a certain man who just asked him few questions and told him that he had been offered a place at Malawi College of Health Sciences and that he would later be informed the date for starting his studies.

“Upon returning from Blantyre, the suspect disappeared with the laptop until on 23th June, 2016 when he was arrested by police after the complainant lodged a complaint at Kasungu police station,” said Namwaza.

Kakhwesi who hails from Kamkowa village, Traditional Authority Chulu in Kasungu district has been charged with theft by trickery which is contrary to section 321 of the penal code and he will appear in court soon.

  5. the buyer herself is equally to blame. is the thief a health worker? while one may appreciate that corruption has been institutionalised in the country and places can’t secured withiout connections, but caution has to be taken at every stage of a deal.

  6. by “place” do you mean a “plot”?i know what you mean just that you did not write what you mean,i mean i just imagined on what you might mean!
