According to the Salima Police Station Criminal Investigations Officer Superintendent Arnold Sikumbiri, the suspects are Keneth Nkhoma of 27 years from Zitambira village in the area of Traditional Authority Chakhumbira in Ntcheu and Helbert Malaoni 39 from Chalera village in the same district.

He said police arrested  the suspects  when Nkhoma tried to sell the bones to his former boss Sergeant Steven Mizere of Parachute Battalion of Malawi army.

“What happened was that after quitting his job to his army boss as a shopkeeper, Nkhoma brought 8 human bones with the mind that Mizere will buy it,” said Sikumbiri.

“However, Mizere tipped his police wife Sub-inspector Grace Mizere, who later reported the matter to the station,” he added.

According to him, the Salima Police Management asked the soldier to accept the deal in order to arrest the suspects at the exchanging point.

He said “the suspects revealed that they are the ones who killed an Albino in Ntcheu few days ago and they have mentioned other people who were involved in the incident.”

Mizere then said that the two will later be sent to Ntcheu to answer the charge of murder while the police continue with their investigations.

    Guys, in rural areas if u get rich people suspect that you are crooked in one way or the other. Anthuwa it could be possible that they thought kuti the potential buyer analemera mnjira yokhwima hence targeting him. Its typical of Malawian mindset.

    Let those with eyes see . . .
    . . . Because of the risk involved, it is a known fact that the market for human bones is an underground and secretive one.
    . . . Unless there was some indication that Mizere buys human bones, there was no any way the bone sellers could approach and try to sell him the bones. And mind you, he is a policeman!
    . . . And to confirm this, the seller was a former shopkeepr for the alleged buyer; implying that they know each other. Certainly, this bone-seller knows that the former boss is a buyer of human bones.
    . . . The boss has only felt the need to report the matter, because he knows that people are somewhat alert now.
    ……………………………………………………………………………
    . . . Is anyone any more surprised as to where the buyer or market for albino bones is?
    . . . Is anyone any more surprised that despite a sizable number of albino hunters being caught, the police could not trace or reveal out the ultimate buyer?
    The buyers are right here in Malawi, in our midst!
    ……………………………………………………………………………
    And there are indications that our politicians are involved in this . . .
    . . . otherwise, they could have swifty acted by executing anyone found taking part in this trade. Alas! The politicians are just talking!

    is it intercepted or suspected at chipoka .Zina ukawelenga hhhahahahha

  12. Nabetha says:

    Typical of uncivilised mentality. Going around hunting and killing albinos yet there is no immediate market for their body parts.

  13. Daniel Phiri says:

    what made them choose this particular family without fearing the consequences after all this is a family of a Soldier and a Police woman. should we think that they know each other and that they were given up maybe because something somewhere went wrong?

    1. kankwalala says:

      I also wonder. Why did they choose to sell to this couple and yet they are asilikalis? Smelling something here.

      1. Mphalabundu says:

        These people need to executed by the firing squad at the stadium. No need to waste time and resources taking them to court. Its high time we deal with this nonsense once and for all.
