Written by  MBC Reporter

Malawi Police has arrested three people on suspicion of playing part in the killing of a long time Greek tobacco farmer at Namwera in Mangochi, Harry Yiannakis, who was shot at his estate in May this year.


A 52-year-old farmer was also robbed off K14 million the day he was killed  at his Tambala Estate in Masuku, Traditional Authority Bwananyambi in Mangochi.

Mangochi police station spokesman Rodrick Maida said officers have arrested the three suspects  on separate occasions with the help of community members.

He said they are following leads and hinted of further arrests of other two suspects.

Police has withheld particulars of the suspects being held “for fear of jeorpadising our investigations.”

Maida said once the other two suspects have been arrested, they will put together  details of the murder case.
