Malawi Police in Nkhata Bay are keeping in a cooler a 36yr old man identified as Elijah Thawe for calling a boy born with albinism a good deal.
The district’s publist Ignatius Esau said a 9 year old boy Hussein Kazembe who was born with albinism was fighting with his friend and certain woman who was within their vicinity separated the two.
“Immediately after they were separated , the suspect who was sitting aside said the woman should have let alone the boy with albinism since to him selling the boy could be a big dea. This annoyed the woman who later informed the boy’s mother, Mrs Regina Kazembe who inturn reported the matter to police”, said Esau.
The suspect who hails from Mkumbira village under Traditional Authority (TA) Mkumbira in Nkhatabay district has since been arrested and will appear in court soon to answer charges of Conduct Likely to Cause a Breach of Peace which infringes section 181 of the penal code.
The victim comes from Ndaona village in the area of Traditional Authority (TA) Nsabwe in Thyolo district.
