Police in Malawi has arrested a bodyguard of former President Peter Mutharika for allegedly helping him avoid nearly $7 million in import duties. Mutharika has denied knowledge of the scheme, which saw cement for the construction of his private property imported duty-free.
Norman Chisale is one of several people whom police arrested Tuesday for alleged involvement in the cement importation deal.
Police spokesperson James Kadadzera confirmed the arrest but refused further comment to avoid jeopardizing the investigation.
