Man gets 6 years jail for uterus sale

Blantyre Magitsrate Court has convicted and senteed to six years prison a 24-year-old man for being found in possession of a uterus, a female organ that contained a developing foetus, which police claim he intended to sell to a traditional doctor.

Charles Nyasulu was charged with selling and possessing body tissues contrary to section 16(a) of the Anatomy Act.

Section 16 of the Anatomy Act prohibits people from selling or buying the body of a deceased person or a tissue removed from the body of a deceased or living person; or for gain or profit, supplies to any person for educational, scientific, research, therapeutic or diagnostic purposes, or any other purpose whatsoever, tissue removed from the body of a deceased or living person.

He pleaded guilty that he approached a Mbayani based popular witchdoctor ‘Dr Nyangazidana’ whom he offered his ‘merchandise’ at K30 000.

Blantyre Police Spokesperson Constable Elizabeth Divala said Nyasulu pleaded guilty and the court sentenced him to six years imprisonment with hard labour “so that others should learn.”

According to Divala, it remains unclear on where Nyasulu got the uterus.

Nyasulu comes from Namasalima Village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Chikowi in Zomba District.
