Malawi court jails 4 people found with albino bones

15 February 2016, 15:51

Lilongwe - Four people, who were brought before a court in Malawi's Phalombe town after they were found with the bones of an albino person, have been sentenced to four years in prison.

Nyasa Times reports that the four included three men and one woman - Starford Chimenya, 45, Kondwani Patrick, 38, Rose Kumpama, 39, and Petro Jezemani, 33, who is a Mozambican citizen.

"The four got nabbed some weeks ago and they were being kept at Phalombe police station as they waited to appear before court to answer charges of being found in possession of human bones," Malawi24 quoted Phalombe police spokesperson Augustus Nkhwazi as saying. 

A previous News24 report indicated that the four were arrested last month following a tip-off from a businessman, who was allegedly offered the bones in exchange for money.

They were sentenced to four years in prison with hard labour.
