Police in Malawi is holding two suspected Ugandans for allegedly stealing a vehicle, a Noah registration number DA3875 from the capital city, Lilongwe.
Media reports indicate Lilongwe Police Public Relations Officer Inspector Kingsley Dandaula identified the two as Godfrey Kisame, 39 and Jackson Chikume 33, both residents of Lilongwe.
IP Dandaula said that the two attacked a home at around 6 in the morning and waylaid the owner at the gate.
“As he was about to drive out the suspects pulled out a pistol and told him to get out of his car and managed to get another vehicle and drive away,” said the officer.
He added that the victim managed to get into another vehicle and chase the two, who however, tried to stop his pursuit by pointing a gun at him.
“Coincidentally, there was a police patrol vehicle within the vicinity which blocked and stopped the suspects,” IP Dandaula said, adding that police found them with four rounds of ammunition.
The two have been charged with robbery with violence contrary to Malawi Penal Code and are currently in police custody awaiting to appear in court.
