Police at Nselema in Machinga have arrested two men suspected of murdering a man in his 30s at Polomosa Village, Traditional Authority Chikweo in the district as two other men connected to the murder are at large.
Police Public Relations Officer for Machinga, Constable Andrew Mayao confirmed the arrest of Peter Wisdom, 26 and Yoswa Bvumbwe, 32 both of Nampeya Village, Traditional Authority Chikweo.
