Judge Mzondi Mvula found the three guilty of all three charges they faced, including murder (for which they were sentenced to 68 and half years in prison), human tissue extraction (for which they were sentenced to 48 and half years in prison), and human trafficking (for which they were sentenced to 38 and half years in prison).

The three, James Pilo Khang’a, 71, Sumaila Umaila Nikisi, 45, and Gayesi Katupe, 44, will serve their sentences concurrently, according to Judge Mvula.
