4 Business Owners Arrested For Corrupt Practices In Maridi

By Stephen Bakindo


Four business owners selling at Maridi main market (Suk-wahida)   were apprehended last Friday and detained for three hour at Maridi police custody for what police described as corrupt practices to cheat citizens. 

According to the police, the investigation revealed that the four business owners used to cut a measurement cup to sell sugar expensively to their customers.  However, one of the suspects who failed to mention her name for fear of another arrest condemned the manner in which they were arrested. She said the policemen came immediately checking the cups without any notification. 

She said they were resizing the cup to ensure that they cope with the rising prices of commodity.  Meanwhile the Inspector of  Criminal Investigation Department  (C.I.D )  in Maridi  County,  Samuel  Jonathan said  he sent his team to go and monitor  those people who are selling sugar in the  market after getting  some complain from  the citizen and customers  who are buying sugar from the market .  Jonathan warned the business owners not to repeat such mistakes of cutting the cups again. Effort to reach Chamber of Commerce in the state for comment   was not successful.
