Police arrested Kaiya on October 12 after  his picture with a pistol revealed in his pair of trousers at the public function went viral on social media.

National Police spokesperson James Kadadzera said the law enforcers were interested to question the DPP cadre to  establish how  he got the gun.

Police has since pressed charges of being found in possession of military attire to Kaita, 42, from Kwanjana Villagem Traditional Authority  Nchiramwera in Thyolo District.

But Phiri has disowned Kaiya, saying despite knowing him as  a Thyolo homeboy, he is not part of his security detail.

This is a joke. Have you really failed to trace a pistol? Please arrest the guy who was brandishing the pistol in full of everybody.
