A Malawi court has sentenced a Catholic priest to 30 years in prison over the gruesome 2018 murder of a man with albinism, whose body parts he had planned to sell.
Judge Dorothy NyaKaunda Kamanga who gave the verdict on Monday, June 27, sentenced Catholic priest Thomas Muhosha, along with police officer Chikondi Chileka and three others to 30 years imprisonment with hard labor on charges of transacting in human tissue.
The Judge said Fr. Thomas Muhosha had planned to traffic 22-year-old MacDonald Masambuka’s tissue.
Mr. Masambuka was reported missing in February 2018 and his body was discovered a month later, with the legs and arms had been removed. He was violently killed in a graveyard after his brother deceived him that they had found him a potential wife and he should come and meet her.
