Blantyre City Mayor Noel Chalamanda is said to be receiving death threats and police on Friday arrested one suspect.
Chalamanda confirmed he has been receiving the threats on his mobile phone.
“Today I was attending a Malawi Defense Force meeting at Chichiri when I received one such threat. The guy said he wanted to meet me at Shoprite and was arrested by police,” he said.
Police in Blantyre were reluctant to divulge more information on the matter saying the law enforcers were still investigating the matter.
The youthful lawyer-mayor is credited for making Blantyre more beautiful than ever before and is making initiatives that will make Blantyer the best place to live in Malawi cities.
