The man, Aaron AJasi, was arrested on Wednesday at Kawale in the city by police officers who were patrolling the area.
According to a police statement, the officers saw Ajasi wearing a Malawi Police uniform but was not displaying the demeanor of a police officer thus they arrested him. James will appear in court to answer charges of impersonation contrary to section 389 of the penal code.
