Sinazongwe Cops arrest Head Teacher

Rural News Sinazongwe Cops arrest Head Teacher

Sinazongwe Police have arrested Makonkoto Basic School Head teacher for alleged theft of Parents Teacher’s Association (PTA) Funds.

Police arrested the Head teacher last week Wednesday for allegedly stealing three million Kwacha meant for PTA funds but was later released after a named United Party for National Development (UPND) Member of Parliament ordered them to release him.

But he was later re-arrested on Monday pending investigation into the matter.

When they searched his office police found that in the same drawer there was money meant for examinations but it was not touched.

Sinazongwe District Commissioner Laiven Apuleni said no one was allowed to interfere with the operation of the law enforcement officers adding that a MP has no right to give orders to police to release a suspect.

Mr. Apuleni said police should be left alone to do their professional duty without any interference from anybody.

Makonkoto Basic School Head teacher Stephen Mweemba told ZANIS before he was picked up for questioning that he discovered that money was missing in his office on Wednesday last week and that thieves broke into his office.

Mr. Mweemba said he convened a meeting with his members of staff until they concluded to take the matter to police but when they reported he was arrested as the first suspect.

“We are not sure of who store the money as I am the last person to leave and the first one to open the door to my office.

But when police visited the School they discovered that all the doors to the Head teacher’s office were intact and there was only a small hole made in one window and a person could not pass through.
