Tadikira Mafubza, step son to former President Peter Mutharika, has been arrested by police allegedly in relation to the mass grave in Mzimba.
According to National Police spokesperson Peter Kalaya, Mafubza handed himself over to police at Area 30 Headquarters some hours ago.
“We have strong evidence linking Tadikira to the mass grave in Mzimba. We had been looking for him for the past three days and he decided to hand over himself at Area 30. That is all I can say for now as we continue with our investigations,” said Kalaya.
This publication also learns that a vehicle allegedly used to ferry the people whose mass graves were found in Mzimba has been impounded as well.
In October, 30 dead bodies of people whom the police said were of Ethiopian origin were found at a forest in Mzimba.
