Mrs. Mairiya Zikabuma, African Serial Killer - 1963


FULL TEXT: Blantyre, Nyasaland [Malawi] – Mrs. Mairiya Zikabuma, 45, and Mkwalala Salimoni, 44, have been sentenced to death for the snake poison murders of six Africans, it was reported Saturday. The prosecution charged the murders were admitted because of a dispute over a divorce settlement which ended Mrs. Zikabuma’s marriage.

Note: The report does not make it clear whether the murders were committed at different times or at the same time. For the time being this case will be treated as one of serial murder. It is not yet clear whether the name Mkwalala Salimoni is masculine or feminine.
