TANZANIA: MARIAM`S KILLER MUST HANG TO DEATH
March 2, 2012: In Tanzania, the Court of Appeal dismissed an appeal by Kazimili Mashauri, against a High Court ruling in which he was convicted and sentenced to death by hanging for killing Mariam Emmanuel, a girl with albinism in 2008.
The verdict was delivered by a panel of Judges comprising January Msoffe, Steven Bwana and Sauda Mjasiri.
In their ruling, the judges upheld High Court Justice Protas Rugaziaâs ruling that Kazimili Mashauri should be hanged to death for killing the albino girl on January 21, 2008 at Nyanghâolo village in Misungwi District, Mwanza Region.
He said given the above scenario and circumstances, the judges saw no merit in the appellantâs grounds of appeal, thus they dismissed his case. (Source: The Guardian, 3/3/2012)
