Resident Magistrate, Mr Chiganga Tengwa, sitting before the Katavi Region Court in Mpanda Town, convicted the accused person after being satisfied by the evidence produced by prosecution witnesses. “Actually the prosecution side had proved its case against the accused beyond reasonable doubts that you have committed the felony, therefore I sentence you to 20 years in jail.

I pass this severe sentence so that it will serve as a lesson not only to you but also to others....” added Mr Tengwa. State Attorney, Mr Achiles Mulisa for the prosecution, had called six witnesses to prove its case against the convict while the Counsel , Mr Patrick Mwakyusa for defence had summoned four witnesses .

On mitigation , the convict prayed for lenience sentence that he did not known who put pieces of elephant tusks in his office at the church .

2) THE prosecution is finalising investigations into the case in which the alleged Queen of Ivory, Chinese national Yang Feng Clan (66), is charged with leading organised crime and unlawful dealing in government trophies worth 5.4bn/-.

All of them are in remand.The prosecution alleges that between January 1, 2000 and May 22, last year in the city, jointly and together, all the three accused persons carried on business of the said government trophies.
