Blantyre, Malawi -

Two prostitutes in the northern Malawian city of Mzuzu who are accused of killing two non-paying clients, surrendered to police on Thursday.

“The two handed themselves over to a police unit upon realising that they were being hunted,” police spokesperson Norah Chimwala said.

The sex workers are accused of killing two drunken clients who refused to pay by drowning them in a dam.

The prostitutes, who have been identified as 17-year-olds Florence Khoko and Mphatso Chanza, will soon appear before court to answer murder charges, which could carry a death sentence.

They had been on the run since the weekend. - Sapa-AFP
