High court of Malawi sitting in Mangochi has sentenced 3 people to 155 years imprisonment for killing a person with albinism
The three are James Pilo Khang’a 71, Sumaili Umaili Nkisi 45 and Gayesi Kapute 44from Kadewere village TA Chow in Mangochi
The judgment came after presiding judge Ntole Mvula found the trio guilty of killing Saidi Dayton from Kadewere village T/A Chowe in the district.
In his rulling he sentenced the three to 68 and half year imprisonment for murder, 48 and half years for extracting human tissue and 38 and half for trafficking in persons but the sentences will run concurrently
The court heard that Khang’a, Nikisi, Kapute and Luciuc Daudi Ngalu who is still at large since January, last year caused the death of Dyton and extracted tissue from his corpse
During police investigations Kapute revealed that he buried Dyton’s body parts in his garden after wrapping the body in a yellow sack
Reacting Association of People with Albinism president young Muhamba said the judgment is acceptable as it is the same as life imprisonment.
