Police in Lilongwe have arrested Tadikira Mafubza, stepson to former President Peter Mutharika allegedly in relation to the mass grave in Mzimba.
National Police spokesperson Peter Kalaya says Mafubza handed himself over to police at Area 30 Headquarters a while ago.
Said Kalaya : “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.”
Our sources indicate 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.
