Police in Salima have arrested a man on charges of suspected theft by trick by impersonating public officer.

Salima police publicist Sub inspector Jacob Khembo has identified the suspect as Frazer Mkhonde who was soliciting money from chiefs claiming to be an official from the office of president and cabinet.

According to sub inspector Jacob Khembo, the suspect Fazer Mkhonde posing to be an official from the office of president and cabinet lied to group village headman Tsekwe of traditional authority Khombedza’s area that he would help him get the Khombedza chieftaincy.

It is reported that the group village headman was in the line of the chieftaincy of traditional authority Khombedza which the suspected capitalized on to get money from the chief claiming he will help him get the position.

Khembo says the suspect Mkhonde could also write some documents to appear as if he got them from the district commissioner’s office as a way of coaxing the chief to believe his tricks.

From July this year to this month about 780,000 kwacha has been stolen from group village headman Mtsekwe and other village and group village headmen from the area who were in support of the move to dethrone traditional authority Khombedza.

The suspect according to the police PRO convinced traditional authority Mtsekwe to mobilize chiefs and write a letter which over seventy nine chiefs did and signed addressed to the president on claims that he will send it to the president for consideration.

Each of the seventy nine chiefs contributed about one thousand five hundred kwacha which he took.

He is expected to appear in court soon where he will answer charges of theft by trick and impersonation of a public officer.

Meanwhile police in Salima are advising people to be following the right channels when they have issues to prevent such cases where they have lost a lot of money in pursuit of the position.

Frazer Mkhonde 37, hails from Chakwima village traditional authority Mbwatalika in Lilongwe district.
