BBC journalists investigating a series of mysterious murders in Malawi have narrowly escaped death.
The team including Ghana’s Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Henry Mhango were working undercover to expose men who claim to suck the blood of children to make get-rich amulets when they were attacked by a crowd of furious villagers.
The story, which airs on BBC’s Africa Eye network exposes the reporters digging deep into the dark world of the killers and capturing chilling footage of alleged murderers.
Popularly known as Muhti, human bodies are harvested and dismembered to supply powerful people in society.
These human body parts are believed to possess some abilities to make people not just rich, but also very powerful in the Malawian and Tanzanian societies.
