Police in Limbe have arrested a 43 year-old man for stealing money amounting to K5 million from his boss.

According to assistant public relations officer for Limbe police Widson Nhlane, the suspect has been identified as Peter Chimdika.

“We have arrested Peter Chimdika for stealing K5 million which was withdrawn from FMB Limbe branch on 9 June this year,” the police spokesperson said.

Money

Malawians in serial tax evasion.

According to Nhlane, the suspect was working with a company called Xiu Sheng as a driver and on the said day he went with the manager of the company to FMB in Limbe for cash withdrawal.

After taking the money, the two stopped at a shop in the town where the manager wanted to buy a phone. The manager went alone in the shop, leaving Chimdika in the car together with the money.

“When the boss returned from the shop he found that the driver had run away,” Nhlane said.

Chimdika dumped the car at Maselema PTC in the town and days later he fled to South Africa.

But he returned home after a few months and secured a job with Trans Nazi as a truck driver.

On 14 September this year the suspect was involved in a car accident on his way to Mozambique and was taken to Queen Elizabeth Central hospital for treatment.

Some people remembered that he stole money and they tipped the police about him.

The law enforcers arrested the suspect and he has since been discharged from the hospital.

He will soon appear before court to answer the charge of theft by servant but investigations are still underway to recover the money.

Chimdika hails from Makunje village, T/A Kumthemba in Blantyre.
