Former minister Charles Mchacha and ministry of defense principal secretary Bright Kumwembe appearance in court might delay as the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) wants to effect four more arrests, according to Nyasa Times sources.
Mchacha was arrested on Sunday while the ACB pounced on Kumwembe on Monday.
Nyasa Times sources say four more arrests are expected and that include former ministers of land Kamlepo Kalua and Symon Vuwa Kaunda.
Kumwembe has spent the night in jail following his arrest by the ACB last evening.
ACB Director General Reyneck Matemba confirmed the arrest but did not disclose the details.
Reports however indicate that Kumwembe’s arrest is connected to that of Democratic Progressive Party Regional Governor for the south, Mchacha.
Mchacha was arrested on Sunday but details also remain sketchy.
But recently the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) reported Mchacha to the ACB for abuse of office allegations.
During his tenure as minister, Mchacha reportedly solicited huge sums of money from Lilongwe Water Board for his personal and political gains.
