Notorious gangsters arrested in Mzuzu

MZUZU(MaraPost)–In what can be billed as major breakthrough so far in the fight against organized crime, Police in the Northern Region have arrested one of the most feared and notorious criminals in an operation carried out earlier this week.

Confirming the development police in Mzuzu told local media that the criminals have been arrested in connection to a series of robberies happening in Mzuzu City and other surrounding territories.

The police therefore described the arrest of  the criminals as the most significant breakthrough in efforts to combat organized crime across the region.

“Yes, it is true we have in our custody one of the most wanted criminals in Mzuzu, we arrested them as we were carrying our operations on Monday.”

Currently, the police are quizzing the suspects to bring forward weapons they were using in their criminal operations.

Malawi has for the past few months seen an increase in armed robberies, a situation many commentators have blamed on the recent transition of power that saw President Mrs. Joyce Banda assuming the reins of power following the death of Bingu wa Mutharika in April.

Mutharika regime applied heavy handedness on crime as it enforced the controversial shoot-to-kill policy but when President Banda took over she abandoned it saying it’s illegal.
