Chief Resident Magistrate Court in Blantyre has issued a warrant of arrest against businessman Humair Salim Mahomed Sidik Jussab over a car suspected to have been stolen from South Africa.
This is after Interpol a couple of weeks ago traced the car, VW Amarok, double cab, registration number BZ 1382, white, at a garage in Blantyre. He is suspected to be on the run.
Humair happens to be a young brother to businessman Mohamed Shabir Salim Jussab, who is also suspected to be on the run after another warrant of arrest was also issued against him earlier for alleged cyber harassment offences.
The warrant of arrest issued against Humair require investigators from Blantyre Police Station who applied for it to hunt the suspect and bring him before the court.
“This is to authorise and require you to enter into upon and arrest the said suspect, and if arrested, to take possession of the said suspect and produce the same forthwith before this court,” reads the warrant of arrest in part.
The warrant explains the offence is suspected to have occurred on December 15 2022 when the suspect brought the car into Malawi dishonestly.
Malawi Police Service (MPS) investigators, who formed part of the Interpol, carried out an operation in selected districts that included Blantyre and Mangochi, according to South West Region Police Headquarters spokesperson Beatrice Mikuwa.
The Interpol recovered four vehicles, including this Amarok VW registered in the name of Humair Jussab.
Humair’s elder brother, Shabir, apart from the cyber harassment offences, is also wanted by police for assault of his driver, and is also facing a K26 million claim for his client’s vehicle he failed to repair at his garage.
The K26 million claim was filed by Shafqat Kasam, demanding the refund which he said was value of his BMW convertible which he claimed RR Auto Service, Shabir’s garage in Blantyre, failed to repair it for over two years.
Kasam claimed in an interview his car, which he said was a runner and only had a sun roof problem which was not functioning, was not repaired until the garage was sold and he later heard that Shabir was on Interpol Red Alert and in Saudi Arabia.
On the case of the fired driver who told police he was assaulted, the 72-year-old ex-employee, Stainford Kalitsilira, told police his former boss assaulted him and verbally abused him on July 16 2021.
