Two arrested in Chikwawa for possession of live pangolin

Nchalo Police Post in Chikwawa on Friday arrested Enasiyo Yembekeza, 66 and Patrick Jimu, 44, for allegedly possessing a live pangolin.

According to Chikwawa Police Station spokesperson, Dickson Matemba, police acted on a tip-off from community members and arrested the suspects at Jombo Trading Centre in the district.

“The pangolin was found hidden in a laptop bag and has since been handed over to Majete Game Reserve officials,” said Matemba.

He added that the suspects will appear in court to face charges under section 110(b) of the National Parks and Wildlife Act.

Matemba has since commended the public for their support in combating wildlife crime.
