Machinga police nabs albino kidnapper

Written by  Evance Chisiano

Machinga, March 9: Police in Machinga arrested 19 year old Joseph Andiwochi for allegedly kidnapping a two year old albino girl at Muluku village, Sub Traditional Authority Mchinguza in the district.

Andiwochi's two accomplices and brothers, Kamanga Likhutu, and Sinoya Likhutu are still at large.

It is reported that Andiwochi and the two kidnapped the minor at her home. But the minor’s ten year old sister who is also an albino raised an alarm which prompted villagers to man hunt the three.

Andiwochi was arrested as he tried to hide the little girl in a nearby bush, but the two fled into maize gardens.

The little girl is one of the three albino girls born to Lonely Stenala, a mother of four children.

Andiwochi is currently locked at Machinga Police and the law enforcers have said instigations are ongoing to arrest all those connected to the case.

Cases of albino kidnapping, grave exhuming and possession of human bones are common in Machinga.
