LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The Malawi Police have arrested members of a gang that allegedly torched UTM offices in Lilongwe and in the process, killed three people of the same family.
Prior to the fresh presidential election, the UTM offices were struck by a petrol bomb. The attack affected late Selemani Tambala’s family.
The family was housed in one part of the building that both father and mother lost their lives.
Various stakeholders, including UTM and Human Rights Defenders Coalition demanded justice for the Tambala family.
National Police deputy spokesperson Thomek Nyaude confirmed the arrests but could not give more details, saying investigations were still underway.
The arrest was difficult when former President Peter Mutharika with Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) was in power.
