Mystery surrounds the admission to a private clinic of Norman Chisale as prison authorities refuse to be dragged into commenting on the development.

Chisale who was the bodyguard of former President Peter Mutharika is on remand following a sequence of arrests on various criminal offences.

He is reported to have spent about 16 days at a private clinic in Lilongwe.

The news is continuously attracting mixed views from commentators and members of the public.

They question the decision to have Chisale referred to seek medical attention at a private clinic instead of being taken to a public hospital.

Some are describing it as strange since the former top security aide is receiving preferential treatment unlike other suspects taken on similar charges.

But when contacted by Capital FM, a senior prison official who opted to remain anonymous declined to comment on the matter saying doing so would be against the ethical requirements in respect to the suspect’s right to privacy.

The prison official further disclosed that Chisale remains what he described as their client hence he deserves to be respected just like any other suspects being kept at their facility.

Norman Chisale has among others been charged with fraud and money laundering; attempted murder of a woman at Chimwankhunda in Blantyre and the murder of ACB Director of Corporate Affairs Issa Njauju.
