Judge Madise upholds life sentence for Chiradzulu murder terror convict Fulaye Bokhobokho

Thomson Fulaye Bokhobokho, who 17 years ago when he was 33 years old, confessed to have been responsible for six brutal murders and mutilations of women in Chiradzulu District after a High Court upheld his life sentence.

Judge Dingiswayo Madise: Upheld Bokhobokho’s life sentence

Killings in the remote district in the Southern Region has all the same hallmarks – missing breasts and genitalia.

Bokhobokho was removing anything from his victims  – tongues, buttocks, eyes, private parts and lips.

In one incident, even a head was missing.

He however appealed against his sentence, saying it was harsh.

His lawyer Trouble Kalua argued at Zomba registry of the High Court that the convict has already spent years in jail and was 50 years old  and that chances of reoffending were very slim.

Kalua said Bokhobokho should have received a custodial sentence  that result into his immediate reformation.

But State lawyer Andrew Salamba said Bokhobokho deserve death penalty and that any custodial sentence the minimum should be 45 years imprisonment with hard labour.

In his verdict  Justice Dingiswayo Madise dismissed all aspects of Bokhobokho’s mitigation.

Madise  upheld the conviction and life sentence, saying it was “appropriate and I maintain it.”

Many believe Bokhobokho and his acoomplices  were being sent by people who use female body parts as fetishes to increase their riches.

They target breasts and genitalia because, since these parts of the female anatomy are responsible for reproduction, their riches will also multiply.

Chiradzulu is not the only district where serial killers were targetting women.  A number of women were also murdered in similar fashion in the northern border district of Karonga.

Dull lawyer

Serial killers just serial cheaters NEVER REPENT and therefore never change.
If you watch CI on Dstv you will agree me that these are PSYCHOPATHS.
The only way to stop them is either life-long incarceration but much more effective (cost-effective too) is just kill them too. So our Malawian lawyers should not attempt to be clever with such such people. Pali milandu yambiri yoti that are potentially pro-development.
