The Blantyre first grade magistrate court has sentenced three men to five years imprisonment with hard labour for stealing from Suncrest Limited.

The three convicts, Maxwell Tiyesi, 28, Grey Wangasa, 21, and Solomon Kaunga aged 23 were arrested for stealing Suncrest milk and juice early last week.

Arrested.State prosecutor Damiano Kapata told the court that the three used a minibus registration number NU 5518 to carry the stolen milk and juice but they were spotted by the police who were patrolling the area.

However Magistrate Kondwani Chinangwa sentenced the three to 60 months each in prison.

  7. Where is justince there?…..those who stole our money in Capital Hill were just given 3 years, yet billions were stolen there with many people who were and who holds high positions in goverment, and somebody very poor out there is going to prison for 5 years just because of milk, common milk hahaha, and those who were arrested with the case of killing people with abinism they were just given 2 years imprisoment, where is justince there? So is it wrong for us to take those laws in our own hands?…..goverment is failing to show us the justince!

  9. And someone steals millions of taxpayers’ money, all they get is 3 years and as if thats not enough mockery on the face of poor would-be beneficiaries in those remote health centres in Mchinji, the thief is pardoned serving barely half of this already laughable punishment! God’s watching.
