Police in Zomba have arrested a man for demanding money from hunger stricken people after claiming that he will give them maize through his non-governmental organisation.

The man, Clement Nazombe, told hunger victims at Khoza village in Zomba that he had an organisation called Millennium Goals Organization which wanted to distribute free maize to them but they first had to give him money for identity cards. police

Confirming the development, Zomba police spokesperson Patricia Supliano said the suspect told the villagers from Khoza that they should pay K5000 each to get ID’s for maize distribution exercise.

But when local leaders reached Zomba District Council officials, they noted that the suspect planned to dupe the poor villagers. The issue was then reported to police and Nazombe was arrested.

Authorities have since advised local leaders to confirm with the district council over programs that are to be rolled out in their areas from organizations.

Nazombe is yet to appear in court to answer charges of attempted theft by impersonating a public servant, which is contrary to Section 99 the Malawi’s Penal Code.

He comes from Muliwa village, Traditional Authority (TA) Malemia in Zomba district.
