Attorney General Thambo Chakaka Nyirenda has said he will defend the civil case in which Timothy Ntilosanje, boyfriend of the late Kotanna Chidyaonga, has sued the police for malicious imprisonment and damage of reputation.
Ntilosanje wants K300 million from government as compensation.
Chidyaonga died in 2020 allegedly after being bitten by a snake in area 3, Lilongwe.
She was unable to get help from hospital, allegedly due to acute scarcity of anti-venom drugs at Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH).
Nyirenda says when the case starts it will reveal a lot of hidden truths.
