Police in Lilongwe have charged musician Penjani Kalua with ‘fraud other than false pretences’ and have since released him on bail.
Senior Superintendent Peter Kalaya, National Police Public Relations Officer said Kalua was arrested in Blantyre on Friday, September 16, 2022 following a complaint that he and his two accomplices duped and defrauded Daiton Bwanamusi of K6.3 million.
Kalaya said police have so far managed to recover part of the money and are currently hunting for the two accomplices.
After his arrest in Blantyre, Kalua was transferred to Lilongwe on Saturday, where the trio allegedly committed the crime and the complaint was logged.
Kalua is expected to report back at Fiscal Police Offices in Lilongwe on Monday, September 19, 2022.
