Two arrested in Karonga for kidnapping young girls

Police in Malawi’s northern district of Karonga are keeping in custody two Malawian men for kidnapping two children aged seven and nine on their way to school with intention to sell them to a Tanzanian witch doctor based in Kaporo, northern part of the district.

Chilumba Police Officer-in-Charge, Billy Chimbonga says the two are Mzondi Sichali 36 years and Solodani Mbali 40 both from Dopa village Traditional Authority Mwilang’ombe in the district. Mbali is a councillor to village headman Dopa.

“It was last Friday around 12 noon when parents of the children claimed that the two girls are missing because they are not yet back from school while their friends were already back,” said Chimbonga.

Chibonga said a wife of Mzondi who was at the market doing her business and did not know the deal of her husband, find the kids in her bedroom around 4pm when she was back and she inform the police.

“During interrogation after we arrested Mzondi, he revealed that he and the village headman Dopa councilor Solodani Mbali were assigned by the witchdoctors to do the deal.  The witch doctor who is at large as of now,” lamented Chimbonga.

Chimbonga said the two will answer charges of Kidnapping with intent to cause harm.
