Another dubious incident at MEC’s Nkhata Bay Office: tripartite election Computer stolen

Nkhata Bay, July 29: Mana reports that unidentified people on Saturday broke into Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) Nkhata Bay office stealing a computer set which contained the entire district’s data of the just ended tripartite elections.

Confirming the development, Nkhata Bay Police publicist Sergeant Martin Bwanali said the incident happened in broad daylight on Saturday.


The office is situated in the same yard with the rest of the District Council offices and a stone’s throw from the police station.
According to Bwanali, the suspected robbers broke into the office through a rear window just when one Mec’s officer had just gone out for lunch.

“For a greater part of the fateful day, a Mec staff was working in the office until around 3 o’clock in the afternoon when he went out for lunch,” Bwanali said.

He said the Mec officer properly locked the office, but upon returning, the officer had a rude awakening to discover that the office had been broken into.

“The officer discovered that a computer set which had information about the just ended tripartite elections had been made away with in the process,” he said.

The police publicist, however, noted that it is premature to determine whether the crime was ordinary or there was more to it.
We have not arrested anyone in connection with the robbery, but what I can confirm now is that of late the district has suffered a spate of burglaries, and the Mec office incident is the latest of such scenarios.

The robbery happened barely two weeks after a Mec warehouse was controversially gutted by fire in Lilongwe.
