Man in plot to sell albino imprisoned

From Daily Nation, Nairobi, Kenya

 Kenyan man who tried to sell an albino to witchdoctors has been jailed for 16 years by a Tanzanian court.

In proceedings lasting less than an hour, Mwanza Resident Magistrate Angelus Rumisha convicted Nathan Mutei of one count of trafficking in a human being and a second one of abduction with intention to murder.

Mutei, 28, tricked Mr Robinson Mkwama to accompany him to Mwanza, telling him that he was going to get him a job.

All the while, he intended to sell him to Tanzanian witchdoctors who were to cut him up and use his body parts for juju.
