Police at Kanengo are keeping in custody 8 members of a notorious thug group, commonly known as “B13”, for allegedly attacking and vandalizing primary schools in area 25.

The arrest comes barely months after Police also arrested members of another gang called ’11 bongos’ for terrorizing the capital Lilongwe.

Kanengo Police Public Relations Officer Esther Mkwanda confirmed of the development in an interview with press, saying grouping consist of teenage boys and is believed to have been formed some months ago.

Mkwanda explained that her office took action to arrest the boys after receiving complaints of intimidation and assaults from various schools in the area.

She said among the 8 boys, some of them are school drop outs while others are still learners.

“Most of their parents have told us that their children have been stealing from their homes but they had no idea that they were also doing it outside”, explained Mkwanda.

She said the boys were found in possession of panga knives, screw drivers, and their uniforms.

Mkwanda said the boys will be sent to Chisomo Childrens Club which is based in Lilongwe and will be monitored with help of the Club for the betterment of their future.

Chisomo Childrens Club is a life changing place for young people and police will be monitoring them, according to Mkwanda.

The boys are answering charges of being found in possession of Offensive Weapons contrary to section 313(A) of the Penal Code and Conduct causing a bleach of peace contrary to 181 of the penal Code.

The case has since been adjourned because they are following a procedure called diversion due to the ages of these boys.
