Thoko and Loyd Phiri

Silky voiced gospel
crooner Thoko Katimba is
still in the cooler at Mchinji
Police Station, almost a
week after his arrest last

The police arrested
Katimba, who is the
current top selling gospel
musician, for allegedly
using a friend’s car as collateral to obtain a Mk
500, 000 loan, without
the friend ’s approval.

Mchinji Police Spokes
person Portiphar Malapa
said Katimba appeared in
court last Friday but the
case was adjourned up to
a day to be set this week.

“The police are still putting up pieces of his
case together before they
grant him bail, that is why
he is still in police
custody,” said Malapa.

Meanwhile, a Lilongwe
based car dealer is also
accusing the Ndilibenanu
mawu star of bolting with
a Mercedes Benz
Compressor he did not purchase.

Both the Malapa and F & F
Business Consultants, a
company which
specializes in Mercedes
Benz dealing in Lilongwe
confirmed the development in separate
interviews last Thursday.

“We did not know that our vehicle had been
confiscated from Katimba
because of debts he had
with a certain person in
Mchinji until some well
wishers tipped us. Thus, on Wednesday we
decided to persuade him
(who was by then
dodging us after the car
had been confiscated) to
meet us in Lilongwe to finalize our deal.

“We praised the heavens that he showed up and
asked him to take us
where he had left our
car,” Francis Mpemba, the executive director of F &
F Business Consultants
was quoted in the last
recent edition of the
Weekend Times tabloid.

According Mpemba,
Katimba had been playing
hide and seek to buy the
car which was pegged at
K2.6 million despite
letting him to use it for some time.

“He only gave us K180, 000 out of K2.6 million.
The K2.4 million cheque
he gave us this other day
bounced at Lilongwe
Standard bank.

Being a
gospel musician, we trusted that he would do
justice to us that is why
we released the car to
him,” said Mpemba.

Mpemba added that the
K180, 000 which Katimba
managed to pay his
company would instead
be charged as a rent fee
for the car through out the time he was using. (Malawi Voice)

    Hello exceptional blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a
    large amount of work? I have virtually no expertise in programming but I had
    been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.

    I understand this is off topic but I simply had to ask.
    Appreciate it!

  • obviously like your web site but you have to check the spelling
    on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I
    in finding it very troublesome to inform the truth however I’ll surely come again again.

    An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was doing a little homework on this.
    And he actually ordered me lunch simply because I stumbled
    upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this
    issue here on your website.
