Police in Mwanza are holding seven people in connection with the theft of Sh150 million from Azania Bank in January.

Mwanza Regional Police Commander Simon Siro said yesterday that the suspects included a teller, who was on duty at the bank’s Mwaloni branch when the theft took place on January 22.

He said five people approached the teller, and convinced him to steal the money, promising him that he would not be discovered because they would provide him with “protective charms”.
