Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security Grace Chiumia shocked onlookers in Mzuzu when she impounded a minibus which carried extra passengers.

According to reports, the minister pretended to board the minibus before confiscating the keys of the vehicle when it was about to leave the city for Karonga.

Grace Chiumia: impounds minibus.

The reports are showing that the minibus registration number RU 5515 exceeded passenger limits which did not go well with Chiumia.

This prompted her to remove the keys of the minibus while it was refuelling at Total Mzuzu Central Station.

Some reports are indicating that Chiumia handed over the keys to police so that they should take proper measures against the driver.

In June the country registered a rise in road accidents which led to the deaths of many people.

To curb the increase in accidents, the police introduced new road traffic rules and started seriously enforcing old ones.

  9. Ignorance its not an excuse…..So go through constitution privately then judge…..Rather than commenting behind brains….

  10. Anzanga a police service iyi ndi message yokuuzani kuti mukulephera komanso nkhaniyi musamasiyile a traffic okha, ma CID nanunso olo inu a G4S muziagwira akatenga 4 x4

    • Komanso ife macommutor ndi udindo wathu kuuza ma taxi driver asakweze 4-4 tikaona report ku police zizatithandiza ine ndapangapo kawiri konse

  11. Lets put politic aside but bus drivers and conductor are stealing our money now, it’s daily robbery ,sometimes you pay the same amount of money but 4 per seat its bad

    • It’s true they are robbing us while our eyes are open. Last week I boarded minibus from town to Matchase in Lilongwe, everyone was paying K400.00 every stage ngakhale otsikila pa shareworld kukwela wina mpando womweo akulipiraso K400.00 and ndalama imeneyo ndi ya conductor/driver

    • So here some politicians analyst take advantage to blame Obama, it’s not right Malawiana are suffering indirectly like we are blind, do you think if other authorities take an example of what she did, all minbus will take lessons

  12. This is a good move.

  13. welldone madam …..next time try traffic cops u ll catch them

  14. Very good move but not great considering the fact that she herself is involved in 200 passports scandal. You can’t be patriotic and be an infidel at the same time

  15. ndalama mwapangazo mayi mungozisamala bwino,,zot n’kuzawinaso 2019 iwalani mwatizuza mokwana mayi.zikomo

    Keep it up mama. This is a very good development. Mwatiphunzitsa. Drivers must be disciplined at all cost. Its the responsibility of as all. Zimatiwawa kutaya anansi athu chifukwa chosasamala. Thumbs up. God bless you!

  17. Mai uyu amaputsitsa and she can arrrest.she is a simple woman even when she is close.she is humble and the way she comes as if she is an ordinary person. She is not like other ministers who normally wear nkhope zoopyseza akafika pa gulu.I like the way she represents her self.

  18. Osakamugwira Chaponda chimanga bwanji? Ufera za eni, pangani zantchito yanu. You are not a traffic police or motor examiner. Mind u Chiumia, this is Malawi. Osamanga anthu omwe amakwera minibus itazaza kale bwanji?

  19. What about 200 passports?

  20. Mmmmm zachamba eti mpaka nduna u traffic?

  21. actually, every good citizen that wishes this country well should be doing this! Ama minibus amaonjeza! A friend of mine boarded a minibus which was over speeding unnecessarily. When the traffic cops stopped it to check the papers and stuff, this friend called one of the traffic cops and told them that the driver is over speeding and anamuuza amayankha kuti ngati simunalape ndi zanu zimenezo. The cops asked the driver, he refused! Then the cops asked the other passengers, anavomera. The conductor and driver forced the friend kuti basi atsike asakwerenso bus yawowo. The friend did that with pleasure! The cops told the remaining passengers kuti akathamanganso, report to the next cops you will meet. That is what we call patriotism

  22. Good gesture Hon Grace osati Minister/MP kumanyoza apolisi pamene agwira munthu ophwanya lamulo pamseu!!!!!!

  23. That’s the way to go honorable minister. Ama minibus take us for granted

  27. Nanunso Yeselani Zimenezi Tidzawelengeko Atakutupisani

  28. She did the right thing.

  29. This is just a publicity stunt, is she herself a trained traffic regulator?

  30. amutibula ayese kupanga zimenezi Elaz or Btown

  31. These are the type of leaders we want in Malawi…She has shown a good example to the Corrupt Police Traffic Officers..

  32. pilizi…. does she have jurisdiction over such matters? abuse of power… ineso ndiyamba kulanda ma minibus iya
