Police in northern Malawi have intensified investigations to arrest people who shot the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) regional treasurer for the north.
Happy Kumwenda told journalists on hospital bed at St Johns Hospital in Mzuzu that he was shot around 7pm at his residence in Nzirawaingwe when he was out talking to his guard.
“A saloon pulled up, there were three men in the car, one of them took a gun and shot me,” said Kumwenda, claiming he knows one of the men who was in the car.
The gun-shot survivor however said he did not know the motive behind the attempt on his life.
Police said they recovered a live bullet and bullet shell at the scene of the incident.
The law enforcers said they are investigating the matter therefore they could not give details on the attempted murder.
The DPP is yet to comment on the matter.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
