Chiradzulu Police Station Officer-in-Charge Superintendent Lloyd Chalemera confirmed the development, saying Mkwezalamba surrendered himself at the police station today.
Chalembera said the councilor will be taken to court after being recorded a statement.
Mkwezalamba bolted from the area after he allegedly offered for sale a grader belonging to the government under the Ministry of Transport and Public Works.
The grader valued at around K500 million had developed a fault and was packed in the councillor’s area who sold it to a Tanzanian businessman at K3.5 million.
The Tanzanian businessman Verian Adams Shuli made a K1, 845, 000 as part payment towards the purchase of the grader.
Shuli and another accomplice, William Katete, of Mwenye village Traditional Authority Likoswe in the district who was hired to transport the dismantled grader were already apprehended by the law enforcers.
