Maputo - The son of Mozambique's former president Armando Guebuza was arrested on Saturday in a legal crackdown on suspects linked to a $2 billion government debt scandal, local media and judiciary sources said.
Ndabi Guebuza, the oldest of Guebuza’s four children, was picked up from his home in the capital Maputo.
Maputo-based independent STV channel said he was arrested in connection with a government debt which plunged the country into its worst financial crisis.
"He is one of the eight arrested by order of the Attorney General," a judiciary source who asked not to be named, told AFP.
Mozambican authorities this week arrested seven other suspects, including businessmen and intelligence officials in connection with the debt scandal.
