Thyolo land grab case: Wandale awaits sentencing next week

Self claimed President of the ‘Thyolo and Mulanje Republics’ Vincent Wandale will be sentenced on November 8 after the Blantyre High Court found him guilty of three charges.

He was convicted of conspiracy to commit a misdemeanour, unauthorised use of land and criminal trespass.

Wandale was arrested two months ago for mobilizing locals in the two districts to share land that belongs to tea estate owners.

Vincent Wandale: Awaits sentencing.

He, under People’s Land Organization (PLO), was reported to have grabbed land at Conforzi tea estate.

Speaking in court on Thursday, Senior Resident Magistrate Thokozani Soko said Wandale had not managed to justify what authority he had to share land and take it from the owners to the locals there.

The court also indicated that Wandale had failed to go for better channels towards addressing the matter at hand.

On the count of unauthorised use of land and criminal trespass, Tendai Nsikita, Wandale’s accomplice got acquitted.

After his previous court appearance, Wandale said that he will take the case to the International Criminal Court (ICC) arguing that he cannot be charged under the constitution of Malawi.
