The Mchinji Senior Resident Magistrates Court has sentenced Edson James Dumba to 3 years imprisonment for trafficking in persons.

During court proceedings yesterday, Dumba admitted to have attempted to smuggle six people to Zambia.

According to Dumba, he was ignorant that he was committing an offence.

Senior Resident Magistrate Eliya Zawanda concurred with state prosecutor Sadley Sambo to issue stiff punishment considering that trafficking in persons is becoming rampant in the district.

This is the eighth case of human trafficking in the district in barely a month.
