Police in Mchinji have arrested three men for allegedly murdering 96-year-old Tsekwe Kwachera and dumping him in a well.
Mchinji Police Public Relations Officer Moses Nyirenda told Malawi News Agency (Mana) Thursday that the three committed the alleged offense on December 5, 2015.
Nyirenda said prime suspect Lyson Phiri, 23, is said to have beaten Tsekwe to death with metal objects and removed his private parts before dumping his body in a well near Destiny Kindergaten School where the deceased was working as a watchman.
He said in a police statement Phiri admitted to have murdered Tsekwe and named owner of the school Vincent Gwiriza and a teacher Amos Nkhwangwa as his accomplices.
“Phiri told the police that Gwiriza and Nkhwangwa took part in the murder of Tsekwe and we have since arrested the two pending further investigations,” he said.
The three will appear in court soon to answer murder charges, according to the police publicist.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
