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 DPP is yet to comment on the matter.
