Human Traffickers Sentenced to 14 Years in Prison for Selling Child In Chikwawa


Two human traffickers from Chikwawa, Malawi, have been sentenced to 14 years in prison each after offering to sell an 8-year-old boy for K2 million.

Kawasi Chidothi, 35, and Enesoni Finiyasi, 19, were arrested shortly after they trafficked the boy from Bereu primary school in Chikwawa to be sold to a businessman based in Thyolo.

In court, the traffickers pleaded guilty to the charge of child trafficking and asked for leniency due to being first-time offenders.

However, First Grade Magistrate Kondani Chinangwa agreed with the prosecution’s argument that a life was at risk and that the traffickers posed a threat to society, therefore requiring a deterrent punishment.

The prosecutor, Sub-Inspector Felix Senzani, told the court that the conviction and sentencing of the two human traffickers should serve as a warning to others involved in such criminal activities.
