By Mike Gwadani

Police in Mchinji has arrested a 46-year-old man, Agapito Mazuzo Mwale for allegedly offering for sale his own 16-year-daughter.

According to Mchinji Police Public Relations Officer Inspector Kaitano Lubrino investigations reveal that in December 2019, Mazuzo approached a certain business-person at Ludzi Trading Centre (name withheld), saying he was offering a sheep for sale.

“When Mazuzo was asked how much the sheep was, he said it was going at K500,000.00, this surprised the business person which prompted him to find out more.

Lubrino said later, Agapito Mazuzo Mwale disclosed that it was not a real sheep, but a human being.
“This shocked the business person who asked for some time.

The business person then disclosed the ordeal to a member of the community policing from the area who further tipped the police”Said Lubrino.
He said the team coordinated and apprehended the suspect.

Meanwhile Lubrino says police has opened a holding charge of conduct likely to cause breach of peace contrary to Section 181 of the Penal Code and will appear before court soon when investigations are over.

Agapito Mazuzo Mwale, 46, hails from Mchitanji Village, Traditional Authority Nyoka in Mchinji.
