A story of courage or whatever you may wish to term it, but a surprise story for you is that four children were caught hiding under a National Company bus at Muloza in Mulanje which had traveled from Lilongwe- a distance of about 424 kilometres.
This happened on Monday.
The four boarded the bus in Lilongwe and hid themselves under the mudguard near the gear box at around 2100 hours and were destined for Blantyre.
However, when the bus reached Blantyre the children did not realise that they have arrived hence they were proceeded to Muloza in Mulanje.
As people were off-loading luggages, a leg of one of the boys was seen protruding outside the mudguard.
The four revealed to have done that as a desperate measure to get to Blantyre as they had no money for transport.
The four children are of the ages of 11-13 and are destitute who were going to Blantyre for a change.
Meanwhile Mulanje Magistrate Court has given an order to take the four to Chirwa Reformatory Centre.
According to police public relations officer for Mulanje police station, Sergeant Gresham Ngwira, this follows a request made by the District Social Welfare office so that the children, get reformed.
