Chanthunya is accused of murdering his girlfriend Linda Gasa, a student from Malawi College of Accountancy (MCA).
Chanthunya arrived in the country in March this year after eight years in South Africa, where he was located by International Police in January 2012.
Through a South African court, Chanthunya challenged his extradition, arguing that he would be sentenced to death as capital punishment remains intact in the laws of Malawi.
Chanthunya is currently on Supreme Court bail pending the hearing.
