But when this blogger contacted Deputy National Police Publicity Officer, he said he is not aware of any arrest.
According to Namusunya close friends who were with him the time he was called to Blantyre Police, the editor was invited to the station over the issue that he uses stolen phones. But upon his arrival at the station the charge changed to being suspected of publishing false information.
Dave’s relative has however confided in this blogger that there are plans that to transfer him to Lilongwe where the case has originated.
