A man in Dowa has been jailed after he was found guilty of selling a child at the price of K0.9 million.

The convict cheated the boy that they should go to Dowa Boma to repair a phone.

He then later offered the boy for sale at the price of K900, 000 but the officer arrested him.

First grade magistrate Emulani Phiri sentenced Nanthambwe to 8years IHL to deter other would be offenders.

The magistrate said: “If the police officer was a serious buyer that means the boy would have been killed or something serious could have happened to him. This is a bad development which needs to be stopped.”
