Two notorious Lilongwe Street Kids Arrested In Lilongwe





he Malawi Police in Lilongwe have arrested two street kids in connection to the robbery at Santa Plaza, Lilongwe Bridge and Crossroads Hotel.

The Lilongwe Police Station Deputy Public Relations Officer Foster Benjamin, said the duo, aged 16 and 17, was arrested on Friday March 11, 2022 after committing the crime on Thursday night.

Benjamin added that Police have since recovered some of the items during the Friday arrest.

He further said that the recoveries include two laptops, three plasma screens, one desktop , four chairs and four solar panels.

Meanwhile, one apple laptop has been positively identified by its owner-an Italian national.

The suspects will appear in court soon to answer charges of robbery and malicious damage.

Street children have been known for terrorizing people, steal money and valuables from their victims in all the three cities of Malawi for the last couple of years.

In 2029, Police in Blantyre arrested two street children aged 15 and 16 for breaking into National Bank of Malawi Blantyre head office, Medical Aid Society of Malawi (MASM) offices and Blantyre Agricultural Development Division (ADD) offices where several computer accessories were reportedly stolen.

Last year, Limbe and Blantyre experienced a rise in robberies and murder cases suspected to have been carried out by the street kids

As one way of curbing the surge in criminal offences carried out by these kids, the Minister of Gender, Community Development and Social Welfare, Patricia Kaliati, issued a two-week ultimatum to irresponsible parents to remove their children from the streets or risk arrest.

However, less has been done as the number of street children moving in the cities of Malawi is still on an increase.“`
