The MPs, Richard Chimwendo Banda of Dowa East, Amon Nkhata of Kasungu Central and two other party members Brian Sambo and Zumani Chidzanja Nkhoma have been charged with three counts of common assault, malicious damage and theft.

National Police spokesperson Nicholas Gondwa confirmed of the arrest.

“I can confirm that indeed the four were arrested on February 4 following a complaint by MCP Regional Governor for Central Lakeshore Mr Lyton Dzombe.

“According to the complaint, Dzombe was beaten by the four at his office, in Area 28 at Nzeru Zabambo Transport where some office materials were destroyed and K500 000was stolen,” he said.

Gondwa said the four were released on police bail the same day.

He said they are expected to appear before court on Tuesday.

There has been some infighting in the main opposition party recently mainly due to leadership differences.

I think it is good to stick to regulations in order not to spoil the image of the Parties. Here things happened by mistake.

Iwe Chancy, MCP has Regional Chairmen, not Regional Governors! Besides your article lacks balance as it doesn’t get the side of the alleged assaulters
