Police officers at Lingadzi Police Station in the capital Lilongwe, have arrested Black Mussa, an ex-convict, for breaking into the Office of Vice President of Malawi and other offices at the Capital Hill where assorted items including computers and CCTV cameras worth millions of Kwacha were stolen.

Among others, Mussa targeted the offices of the Vice President, Accountant General, Finance, Local Government, Economic Planning, and Ministry of Health.

In the office of the vice president, Mussa only drank tea and ate some biscuits.

Exasperated with breakings, Lingadzi Police Station Officer-In-Charge Assistant Commissioner of Police Mr. Billy Chimbonga, ordered detectives to gather massive intelligence and bring suspects to book.
