DescriptionThe stepson of Malawi's ex-President Peter Mutharika has been arrested after 30 bodies were found in graves in a forest in October, police have said.

The corpses were of boys and men believed to be Ethiopian migrants being trafficked to South Africa.

Police said there was strong evidence linking Tadikira Mafubza to the graves, and a vehicle suspected to have been used to transport the group has been also impounded.

Mr Mafubza has not yet commented.

But the former governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has described his arrest as a political witch-hunt against Mr Mutharika's family and his supporters.
