The High Court sitting in Mwanza yesterday sentenced a man to death for murdering a girl with albinism.

Mr Justice Projest Rugazia said in his judgment that lasted an hour and 11 minutes that the court had been left with no doubt that Kazimili Mashauri committed the offence.

However, the court acquitted Kazimili’s co-accused, Mathias Italanga, for lack of incriminating evidence.

Mr Justice Rugazia said the second prosecution witness had proven beyond reasonable doubt that Mashari murdered five-year-old Mariam Emmanuel. The witness, Nhindi Emmanuel, was sleeping in the same room as the little girl when she was murdered.
