Police in Mzuzu have arrested two more suspects in connection with the murder of a British national Allan Michael Fay.
Fay, who owned Lake View Resort on the outskirts of Mzuzu City, was murdered on June 28 this year and his body was found some hundred metres from the resort.
According to Northern Region Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) Peter Kalaya, the two suspects Oswel Chirwa and Julius Ngwira were arrested in the wee hours of Wednesday during a police raid and were found with the deceased’s mobile phones.
“Chirwa has since been found with one of the two cellphones, a Samsung Galaxy 2, that were robbed from the deceased on the fateful day. The phone has been positively identified by Fay’s employees and confirmed by a call log,” Kalaya said
The arrest has brought the total number of suspects arrested in connection to the case to five after the police earlier arrested his resort manager, Gift Mtambo, Fay’s wife Tina Kamanga and Zion Chirwa.
Oswel Chiriwa, 38, a resident of Chiputula Township and a sawyer comes from Chawanyika Village, T/A Mwankhunikira in Nkhata Bay while Julius Ngwira 35, a resident of Msongwe, is originally from Wadosoka Village, TA Kabunduli in the district.
