National Police Spokesperson James Kadadzera confirmed of the arrest to MBC Online, saying Chavura handed himself over to Blantyre Police Station after learning that the law enforcers were hunting for him.


As we were going to the press on Friday afternoon, Chavura was yet to be formally charged.


Chavura handed himself to police in the company of his father.


The police were in the process of transferring Chavura to Lilongwe where he is expected to be questioned, charged and later on taken to court on matters relating to inciting sexual assaults through his song.


Meanwhile, a Lilongwe-based private practice lawyer, Vincent Msowoya, Managing Partner for N.C. Msowoya & Associates has expressed interest to defend Chavura on moral obligation – pro bono.


Msowoya says the manner in which some civil activists and sections of society have condemned him might have an effect on the prosecution process.


“My coming in is to guarantee that he faces a fair trial and that the outcome of the process is determined by Legal premises, and not emotions, zeal or as a means of gratuitous rights advocacy,” said Msowoya.
