BLANTYRE—Nation Publication Limited’s sports analyst Garry Chirwa has dragged his housekeeper to police after R600 (about K27,000) went missing at his Soche East house in Blantyre.
The housekeeper, Lucius Bamusi, 18, who hails from Petani village, traditional authority Changata in Thyolo district, is suspected to have stolen the money from Chirwa’s wallet.
“Mr. Garry Chirwa told the police at Blantyre station that on February 05, 2013 he left Malawi for Johannesburg in South Africa for official duties. He returned home on February 11, 2013 with R1, 270 in his wallet.
“He kept his wallet where he used to and he didn’t spend that night at his house. On February 12, 2013 he was at his house resting but didn’t touch the wallet. On February 13, 2013 he carried the wallet with him to work but in the late afternoon, he discovered that R600 had been stolen,” reads Blantyre police’s copy of ordinary statement in part.
The statement further says the Bamusi denied to have touched the wallet, even if he was the only person in the house.
“He was the only person who had access to the wallet during the two days but he flatly refused having touched the wallet or seeing the money,” it adds.
Bamusi was arrested for the offense of theft by servant and the money hasn't been recovered.
