Pastor Thom who is currently out on police bail was arrested on Tuesday over the same matter today in Lilongwe alongside a senior official from the Ministry of Finance, Nations Msowoya, Malawi Police spokesperson, James Kadadzera, has confirmed that to us.
” (It’s about) allegations of abuse of office and making false documents. The two suspects are in custody at Lilongwe Police Station. Police will give more details later regarding the arrest,” says Kadadzera.
