After discovering that Changisa had infected her with HIV, Selani conspired with her other boyfriend, Gift, also a Malawian, to kill Changisa.

According to Lumka Mahanjana, spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Selani and Gift executed their plan one night. Gift hid in the bathroom of Selani’s home and, once Changisa fell asleep, emerged and repeatedly struck him on the head with a hammer, in full view of Selani’s two minor children. They then buried Changisa in Selani’s yard and continued to live together in the house.

The Second Murder

In 2017, tensions rose between Selani and Gift. Selani, along with her 17-year-old son Avile Jonjwana, decided to kill Gift, who was reportedly abusive. They poisoned him and drowned him in water, subsequently burying his body in a shallow grave atop Changisa’s remains.

Following this murder, Avile began to demand money from his mother, threatening to expose her crimes. After an altercation where Avile chased Selani and her younger sibling out of the house, they sought refuge with Selani’s third boyfriend. Upon returning home the next night, Selani took drastic measures to silence her son. She enlisted the help of her minor son to unlock the door, then used a hammer to kill Avile while he slept, burying him with the other two bodies.

The Unraveling of the Crimes

On August 4, 2020, Selani took her 14-year-old son to a traditional healer due to his ill health. During the consultation, the boy confided in the healer about the murders. The healer, under the pretense of seeking additional help, alerted a community leader who then informed the police. Selani and her son were arrested upon returning home from the consultation. The charges against the younger son were later withdrawn, and he became a state witness.
