People’s Party acting president Uladi Mussa risks arrest after the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) issued a warrant of arrest for him, Nyasa Times understands.
The ACB is accusing Mussa and three others of granting Malawi citizenships to 50 foreigners without following due process of the law.
The ACB accuses Mussa and the others of issuing citizenships illegally to Burundians, Rwandese, Tanzanians and Ugandans.
Former chief immigration officer Hudson Mankhwala appeared before the Lilongwe magistrates court on similar charges.
Mankhwala has been slapped with neglect of official duties for his alleged failure to scrutnise the granting of the citizenships to the foreigners between April 2013 and April 2014.
During that period, Mussa was minister of Home Affairs.
Mankhwala has since been told to report to ACB offices every two weeks.
Mussa has rejected the accusations describing it as witch hunting.
Two Rwandese, including a genocide convict, Vincent Murekezi, were found with Malawian passports obtained in what the police believe was dubiously.
