Police have charged stepson to former president Peter Mutharika, Tadikira Mafubza with human trafficking, after his arrest on Wednesday.
Mafubza’s lawyer Gilbert Khonyongwa has confirmed the development.
According to Khonyongwa, the driver who had been driving the vehicle which is suspected to have been used to transport and dump bodies of foreign nationals in Mtangatanga Forest Reserve in Mzimba, Sam Naveya, has also surrendered to the police.
Khonyongwa says during police interrogations, the driver told the police that Mutharika’s stepson was not aware of the kind of business he had been doing until yesterday when he was called to the police.
The two are expected to appear before the Lilongwe Magistrate’s court today
