Barely a few days after 17 trucks were impounded in Chitipa, Police in Karonga have yet again impounded 20 trucks which were illegaly transporting maize to neighbouring Tanzania.

Karonga Police spokesperson, George Mulewa confirmed of the development in an interview.

“It is true that we have impounded 20 trucks which were carrying maize going to Tanzania.

“By the look of things a lot of maize is exiting the country to neighbouring countries.

“At the moment we have not yet established the tonnage of the maize that has been impounded as investigations are still underway,” he said.

He added that the owners of the trucks will be formerly charged upon completion of investigations.

“They will be taken to court when we complete investigations because they have broken the law,” he added.

Some days back, 17 trucks carrying maize were also impounded in Chitipa as they tried to exit Malawi.

Reports from the Police indicate that the owners of the trucks which were impounded in Chitipa will appear before the court today to answer charges of illegally exporting maize.

In Malawi, at the moment it is illegal to export maize as the country does not have extra to sell but only to feed.
