The High Court in Mzuzu City has made an outstanding ruling to one Samson Kaumba to spend his entire life behind bars for attempting to kill a person with albinism.
Court heard that Kaumba and Fiskani Mtambo planned and set up Morton Juma aged 11, into a bush where they hacked him on the neck and left biceps.
Mtambo was however acquitted after prosecutors failed to prove his involvement in the act beyond reasonable doubt.
Judge Dingiswayo Madise’s ruling went against a mitigation stand by defence lawyer Chimwemwe Chithope .
Chithope told the court that Kaumba was a first offender and a youth who might only done the act in an ‘attempt.
But Madise denied the plea for a lenient sentence and ruled that Kaumba be in prison for the rest of his life.
He said’’ Today I have that worst offender before me,” .
The ruling comes hot in the heels of a debate that everyone found torture an albino be killed.
Proponents to this argue that this would see an end to various attacks people living with albinism.
Over 18 murder cases have been reported and 14 cases involving kidnapping of albinos are in the records and that three people with albinism are still missing while 28 graveyards of people with albinism have been tampered with in different circumstances, according to government.

If attempt to kill is life in prison what about a murder
For a change justice is serving it’s duties.
Some government members r behind this Blv mi, the life sentence z a fair game for the killers, the aim z they will be saving few years then disappear (exile)
THIS IS WHAT WE CALL JUDICIAL MOB JUSTICE. THE SENTENCE HAS BEEN INFLUENCED BY THE MOOD OF THE COUNTRY. THIS WAS JUST AN ATTEMPTED MURDER, THE MAN DID NOT KILL. WE HAVE PEOPLE WHO HAVE KILLED BUT HAVE NOT BEEN GIVEN LIFE SENTENCE.
Hhhhh man of here the gnv. is trying to so pple who are enging into malpractice of thinking that they could get rich only through blood of albino,indeed the guy abduct the young innocent boy and started knifing a net just emagine,is this atempt?that boy is alive is by the grace of God mr.let us welcome the judgement as a special and diferent from these other murder cases or manslaughter etc.Mayb others can learn something
….Why life imprisonment after all he was jyst tempt to murder and it is last year September…why not this current killers on the ground now???not fair and Malawians shiuld open their eyes and see both corners we will know the truth….Eishshsh!!!
Nanga inu a Kalindo, mukavulanso pamenepa?

Hey hey they are killers put their faces
Ok nde bloa mukadangomupha mwina ndi mfiti nde azathawa
He will be spending our tax money when the body of albinos they killed are rying down the grave,Why keeping him alive. Judges think first b4 passing judgement, Death sentence is fit for anyone who kills.
This Guy is so lucky. God is really merciful to His own people. Can u Imagine! This guy will receive free meal, free clothes, free accomadation & the word of God in Jail for him to repent, but yet he is a criminal

Kulanga ndi kwamwini wake
This is the best punishment ever given to type of offenders. I agree with the Judge. This sentence will help in reducing such merciless killings in this country. Other Judges should emulate this example. The people deserve stiff punishment if the killings are to stop.
He deserved more than 5 life sentence+40 yrs,so that may be we can eradicate these barbalic behavour
The question is were is his market? we want 2 know so we can apply mob justice to this buyer & end this !!!
Thus it Phillip, we have to uproot the market & make malawi safe for our brothers & sisters
Thas the only thing ,,,,,,,,, buyers
Buyers??? Mmmh It Wil take u tym.
Chakudya azikadya kundendecho ndindalama zathu za misonkho
Am satisfied wth the judgement osati kupheratu iai ndekut mukuweluza so u should remember kut kuweluza mkwa Mulungu mwini
Yes, that’s the very good judgement. Judge Dingiswayo Madise this is better now. Considering the people with albinism are going through this nation of ours. Thses abductors should spend their life in prisons!!! No mercy for these abductors, and I hope your fellow judges will follow this.
Osaopanso apa chondifikira chindifikire basi!!!!
This is a landmark Judgement. It has helped to clarify matters as regards the difference between being charged with attempted murder/murder and some other offences such as abduction, conspiracy. The Judge has also meted the highest possible sentence for the offence of ATTEMPTED MURDER (the victim dd not die, but there was an attempt to kill him). There’s a widely followed principle in criminal law to the effect that MAXIMUM sentence is reserved for the WORST OFFENDER. This means that if the maximum sentence is, for example, 30years imprisonment, the Judge can only give the offender 29 or below as they say” the worst offender is not yet born. In the present matter , that worst offender we have been waiting for is now born! someone might appeal this decision on a point of law. We are yet to see the development of law in this regard. But the judgement sends a strong message to the would be albino killers
zachuluka kwambiri amwene.sitinawerenge mkomwe
so does this means that this isn’t the final judgement? so the judgement must not be overpraised
Some of us are not educated but from my point of view i think him being the 1st offender he’s lucky as for the second offender , it should be death by hanging !!
It’s maximum sentence is death. The closer to it is life sentence
cassius chabwa MKandawire; im sure the punishment for “attempted murder” is life imprisonment as provided for in section 223 of the penal code. The person in this case was charged with attempted murder(not murder). so, the sentence herein is the maximum
chisomo miracle: the Judgement is final UNLESS someone APPEALS against it.
Phillip Mulenga: the meaning of “FIRST OFFENDER” in this regard, is that the person in question has NEVER been convicted before( this is his first conviction…… mkoyamba court kumupeza olakwa)
OKUPHA NZAKE NAYE APHEDWE BASI
Nawo #ATUMBUKA asiya Ulimi wa Fodya ajoina za Albino,ndimaona ngati ku Sourthen region kokha komwe kuli khalidwe loipali,Shame!

Nayenso aphedwe plz
zimenezi zimachedwa kuti?
Am disapointed with the sentence, Accused person is a first offender and why giving him maximum sentence deserved for worst offenders? Moreover the victim was not killed it is just an attempted murder. Looking forwad for an appeal thea
Disappointed? Are you one of the killers? Whether the victim was killed or not he deserve that!
Willy mandala stop your stupid thinking.
