Police in Dowa have arrested a 25-year-old man, Khambasi Ndhlozi for allegedly being found in possession of property suspected to have been stolen.
The incident happened on Monday afternoon, December 7 2020 at Mvera Roadblock in the district.
At the time police officers were on duty at Mvera Roadblock when they stopped a minibus which was going to Lilongwe from Salima.
