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.

O……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..O 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! . . .
