Musician Fuggie Kasipa of the Dale Wangayo fame was arrested on Wednesday by Blantyre Police for being found in possession of a firearm without a licence. .
Blantyre Police Station spokesperson Elizabeth Divala confirmed the arrest but referred The Nation to Southern Region Police spokesperson James Kadadzera for more details.
“I can confirm that police have arrested Fuggie Kasipa who is currently being kept at Blantyre Police Station. But for more details talk to Southern Region Police Headquarters,” she said.
