Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) has implicated Namitete based police officer, Zyulio Pondamali, for masterminding the attack of its roadblock at Ludzi Turn-off in Mchinji District bon February 7.
MRA spokesperson, Steven Kapoloma, in a statement on Wednesday said Pondamali ferried people to vandalise the roadblock after his minibus, which was suspected of being involved in smuggling goods into Malawi, was involved in an accident.
According to Kapoloma,Pondamali mobilised the gang to destroy the camp because his minibus, a Nissan Caravan registration number MH 7256, was involved in an accident while conveying smuggled goods.
“The minibus is said to have overturned near Guilleme turn off due to a tyre burst as a result of over speeding. The accident led to the death of the minibus driver.
The Authority said it’s patrol team was not in the area when the accident occurred.
Pondamali is under arrest at Mchinji Police Station and more arrests are expected as investigations are ongoing.
