Man fined K100,000 over pistol

A court in Mangochi has ordered a 38 year-old man to pay a K100,000 fine or in default to serve two years in prison for being found carrying a gun.

The man identified as John Jafali was convicted after he was found guilty of being found in possession of a pistol rifle without licence contrary to section 5(1)(B) as read with subsection 2 of the Firearms Act.

CourtState Prosecutor McAnthony Phiri of Monkey-Bay police told the court that Jafali was stopped in a routine traffic stop on 26th October, 2016 at Mtakataka roadblock when he was coming from South Africa going to Makanjira in Mangochi.

Upon being searched, he was found with a pistol and five bullets without licence.

Jafali pleaded guilty to the charge and when passing sentence First Grade Magistrate Ronald M’bwana said that the conduct of the convict can bring fear to the general public as a pistol can be used to commit robberies in the country.

He ordered that the pistol should be forfeited to Malawi Government as a security measure.

He also told the convict to pay a K100,000 fine.

Jafali hails from Tumbwe Village, Traditional Authority Makanjira in Mangochi district.
