Police in Malawi’s central region district of Ntcheu have arrested nine students from Lake View secondary school in connection with a fire that led to the loss of property worth millions of Kwacha.

Law enforcers in the district confirmed of the development stating that some students had been arrested in connection to the fire.

The students allegedly torched the school's laboratory room, staff room and Accounts office.

This led to the gutting down of school property worth MK2 million in the process.

Speaking to Capital FM, Ntcheu Police Spokesperson disclosed that the students allegedly set the school on fire as a way to vent their frustration on the poor diet being offered at the school and also the continued transfer of teachers to other schools.

Hastings Chigalu went on further to say that, without presenting their grievances to authorities, the students organised themselves and went to Njolomole trading centre where they purchased paraffin for their mission.

The nine that were arrested will appear in court soon to answer charges of arson which contravenes section 337 of the Penal Code.
