Police in Mchinji have arrested a 26 year old man Richard Bwanali for allegedly sneaking up on his naked biological mother who at the time was taking a bath.
Bwanali had just been released from prison after serving a one and half year custodial sentence for bicycle theft.
And on August 7, Bwanali's mother was taking a bath but was shocked to see her son standing besides her, watching her actions.
According to Mchinji police spokesperson Kaitano Lubrino, the 48 year old mother asked the son what he was doing in the bathroom and later screamed for help.
Upon hearing that his relatives and some neighbours were ganging up against him he ran away until next day when he was arrested by police.
Kaitano says the police have registered a case of conduct likely to cause breach of peace as investigations to establish his intention to sneak into the bathroom continue.
Bwanali, hails from Robert 5 village in the area of traditional authority Zulu in Mchinji and he will appear before court soon.
