“Kalua was arrested in Blantyre on September 16, 2022 following a complaint that he and his two accomplices duped and defrauded Mr. Daiton Bwanamusi of money amounting to K6.3 million.
“So far, police have managed to recover part of the money and are currently hunting for the two accomplices,” said Kalaya.
He added that following the arrest in Blantyre, Kalua was transferred to Lilongwe on Saturday, where the he and his accomplices allegedly committed the crime and the complaint was logged.
Kalua is expected to report back at Fiscal Police Offices in Lilongwe on Monday, September 19, 2022.
