The Malawi Police in Salima are under pressure to release four suspects arrested last week in connection to the possession of an illegal firearm.

A source, who did not want to be named, has told the Malawi News Agency (MANA) that the suspects were brandishing the said firearm at Livingstonia Beach Hotel in the district.

According to the source, the pressure increased on Thursday, after the police apprehended the fourth suspect Reinford Mwangonde, who, it has been established, is husband to the current ombudsman Martha Chidzuma Mwangonde.

Mwangonde was earlier arrested in Lilongwe on other charges but was handed over to Salima Police after he was named by the first suspect Nathan Chathyoka as the owner of the illegal gun.

The source further disclosed that investigations carried out since the gun was found have proved that the suspects have no license for the gun.

The police said that they have also found Mwangonde in possession of a licensed pump gun.

According to MANA, sympathizers of the four suspects, including the Ombudsman, were on Sunday morning seen around Salima Police talking to senior officers.

When contacted for comment, Police Public Relations Officer for the Central Region Noriet Chihana said that she had no information on the arrest of Mwangonde.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your
    content seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to
    do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved
    soon. Kudos
