11 People Arrested For Metal Scraps


Police in Thyolo are keeping in custody a driver and 10 others for allegedly being found transporting metal scraps suspected to have been stolen from Limbe- Sandama Railway Line.

Deputy Public Relations Officer for Thyolo Police Station, Rabecca Kashoti confirmed the arrest of the people and identified the driver as a 55-year-old Kenneth Adam of Kanji Village, Traditional Authority Likoswe, in Chiradzulu district.

“It is reported that during the night of 29th May 2023, officers from Masambanjati Police Post working on a night shift were tipped off by a well-wisher that motor vehicle registration number PE 2443 was transporting metal scraps from Sandama Village heading towards Masambanjati Trading Centre.

“Upon receiving the information, the police officers mounted an adhoc road block along Makwasa-Masambanjati-Thekerani road. In course of executing official duties around the area they came across a motor vehicle bearing the same registration number PE 2443 loaded with metal scraps as well as five gas cylinders which are believed to have been used in the commissioning of the crime. Upon interrogation, it was found out that the metal scraps were stolen from Limbe-Sandama Railway Line,” she said.

Kashoti added that Police officers later communicated with officials from Central East Africa Railways who identified the metals to be of their company.

Meanwhile, the vehicle which was being used to transfer the metals has been detained at Thyolo Police Station and the suspects will appear before court soon.
