Mangochi Police Public Relations Officer, Rodrick Maida said that the two were arrested within Mangochi Boma.

“During the night of Saturday March 8, police personnel were on patrol within Mangochi where they came across the two carrying a bag and the suspects started running away upon seeing the officers.

“The police officers therefore smelt a rat and pursued the suspects until they were apprehended. Upon being searched a pepper ball gun with one marble bullet and two masks were found in the bag,” Maida pointed out.

The publicist alleged that the items were intended for robbery within Mangochi Township.

Kadammanja hails from Mtumbwe Village in the area of Traditional Authority Kachenga in Balaka while Kalua comes from Ezondweni Village in the area of T/A Mthwalo in Mzimba.

On the other hand, Police at Namwera Township are keeping in custody seven suspects for allegedly possessing human bones.

Maida said the seven were on February 28 seen carrying a school bag which contained the human bones in a hired vehicle travelling from Chiponde to Nselema.

“On arrival at at Mulibwanji Hospital, the suspects failed to pay the transporter, indicating that a man from Nselema in Machinga would pay their fares. This made the transporter to be suspicious and tipped – off Masuku Police leading to their arrest,” Maida said.

According to Maida, 18 human bones believed to be of an albino person were discovered after searching the suspects’ school bag.
The seven will soon appear before court to answer to a charge of being found in possession of human bones.

    In Malawi and Tanzania, it is very easy to see that Politicians are at the forefront of body parts business either tacitly or covertly. Either way, after so many reports of mutilation and brutalization of innocent individuals, you would think that the countries affected by such a pernicious act, sentence perpetrators (harvester/murderer or buyer/recipient of parts) to a mandatory life imprisonment or death penalty.
    When you invest billions in Armies and security forces to protect citizens, no one life is expendable just because they look different. This behavior is fit for a barbaric and failed Nation. Albinos were safer under your colonial masters! In case, you have forgotten, Evil when allowed to percolate a segment of society, it picks up steam to over run the whole society. Hitler’s Germany did it Jews, and soon the whole world was in flames. No one expected Hitler to try to over run armies across the World but he did just that.
    You need road blocks, assistance from trained dogs to sniff out body parts and set up traps to catch the culprits or wonna be traders

  18. Djomba says:

    This is indeed a poor country where people still believe that they can get rich by killing others. They look at fellow humans as wealth if slaughtered. What a shame. We need to preach Christ so that people’s hearts are liberated…… Lord help Malawi.

    They have to be killed right away very bad pple

  36. Bigdwag says:

    Problem is our laws! When such ppl are caught, they are given very light sentences not befitting the crime committed. For example some dunderheads were caught with such bones and were given 10 years if not less. This ought to be murder! Coz how does one get bones from a person and that person still leaves? Life sentence basi if not execution!!

  37. Nobody says:

    Lord have mercy on us poor Malawians.This evil and filthy practice is bringing curses to our beloved nation.

  38. Charles symon says:

    Very shame.

  39. brutsha says:

    There is nothing like, “we need prayers here” the ultimate solution is DEATH PENALTY TO ALL FOUND RED HANDED LIKE THIS. You know our society has so much been infiltrated by foreigners some of them coming from countries with well known moral turpitude. Every department that is supposed to safeguard the lives of innocent people is corrupt in Malawi. In the event of such society’s moral decay, the only timely solution is to hang those caught in the very act. When that is done you will see trickle down effect. One thing we need to know as a nation is that, fear and respect are not the same but they have synergistic effect when executed simultaneously. What I mean is that when death sentence is implemented it will inculcate fear in the would be offenders.Simple! Whosoever opposes capital punishment could be one of those perpetrators of such heinous acts.

  40. Eeee nothing to say

  41. Kasinja Mfula says:

    Lord have mercy – I regret why our country traditionally happened to have people belonging to this evil ‘religion’. I knew when it started in Tanzania that if this voodoo thing were to come ro Malawi it would appear first in these two districts – Mangochi and Machinga. We need strong prayers.

    Disgusting witches. This is why Malawi will never develop. Backward villagers.
