Police arrest man for putting up sister for sale

Police in Mangochi have arrested  25-year-old man for allegedly offering to sell his sister for K4.5 million.
Police say they have arrested Mphatso Baison from Chilipa in the district for the offence.
Police Public Relations Officer for Mangochi Amina Tepani Daudi said Baison on March 1 2023 approached one of the community policing members under Traditional Authority Mtonda and pitched a business offer whose commodity was his sister.
“The member tricked the suspect that he was running out of cash and needed to top up. However, he took him to the chief before sneaking out to alert the police,” said Daudi.
Meanwhile, Baison who has confessed to having wanted to sell his sister due to poverty will appear before court soon to answer a charge of buying or disposing of any person as a slave contrary to Section 267 of the Penal Code which attracts a maximum penalty of 7 years imprisonment with hard labour.
