The two suspects namely Nowa Madson, 20, and Maxwell Mitawa, 23, kidnapped Patrick Julio and wanted to sell him to Amitofo Care Centre in Limbe – a Chinese-run orphanage.

“The suspects lied to the victim that they have found a job for him at Amitofo Care Centre but he was surprised to hear that he was taken there to be sold,” explained National police Public Relations Officer, Rhoda Manjolo.

The law-enforcers, Manjolo disclosed, managed to rescue Julio after being tipped by the Amitofo personnel.

“They planned to sell him at K5, 000,000.00 and the suspects had a school bag which they wanted to use to keep the money after sales”.

Madson hails from Solomoni village, T/A Mlolo in Nsanje while Mitawa comes from Biliati village, T/A Makwangwala in Ntcheu district.

The two have been charged with kidnapping contrary to Section 263 of the Penal Code.

This is a sad development. Makawians what are we thinking. The Chinese claim that the only thing they don’t eat is a stone. To them human life does not matter. And your president is cementing the relationship with China. He is gaining something. Tidyedwa tonse. We are in trouble. Rise Malawi rise. The Chinese should not be allowed un our country. They will siphon every resources we have, trees, dogs, now humans. Oh God help us. The president is sellingthe country to the Chinese. Mayo ineeeee
