Police in the commercial city of Blantyre have arrested a patient and his guardian for stealing blankets and bed covers from the Tuberculosis (TB) ward at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH).

The couple, Frank Duli, 44, and his wife Sungeni Duli are reported to have stolen blankets and bed covers at the hospital on several occasions.

The two stole the blankets at QECH

Confirming to Malawi24, Blantyre police deputy police spokesperson Andrew Mayawo said Frank was admitted at TB ward in September but, together with his wife, he devised a plan to steal the blankets.

After visiting her husband at the hospital, the wife used to take some hospital blankets home.

The theft was revealed after another person who was also admitted in the same ward reported the matter to security personnel who tipped the police.

Police arrested the couple on Monday this week and charged them with theft since they acted contrary to section 278 of the penal code.

The two however pleaded not guilty to the charges when they appeared before Blantyre magistrate court on Tuesday.

Frank and Sundeni come from Kudza village, Traditional Authority (TA) Changata in Thyolo district.

  9. Recently Human Rights Activists condemned the habit of wheeping pupils by some teachers.Here we are,the law enfircers & hospital workers are violeting the rights of sick people we need to hear your voice.How could someone who has just been discharged from the hospital appear before the court of law while cashgate offenders are given rights to recover from their various illnesses before appearing in court.What kind of Malawi are we developing?Where are Human Rights Activists?Is this how our judicial system going to handle the poor?
