Police in Mulanje recently arrested a 28-year-old man, Benjamin Samson for allegedly being found in possession of medical drugs.

Mulanje Police Publicist, Sub Inspector Gresham Ngwira, said police found the suspect selling the drugs at Chinakanaka Trading Centre in the district following a tip they had received.

He is expected to appear in court once investigations are over.

Samson hails from Luwanje Village in Senior Chief Chikumbu in the district.
