  1. No mercy on them apa izikhala 50. 5o • coz ku ndende kwausilu amabwelako moyonxo

  2. chikwina says:

    We have a big problem here. Why are these people being sentenced to some few years when they have killed a person. Is this government doing enough? I seems to me that you can murder people and get some fews years and thats ok. Protect the people with albinism and give harsh punishment to the killers.

  3. Amfumupkau says:

    These are really candidates for the death penalty.Forget the human rights groups and the west whose job is to protect misfits.Kill them now

  4. Manyetera says:

    I am not a big fun of death sentencing but in this particular case I would support 100%. The mother**ker have to die by hanging. Not even lethal injection.

    death by pain kumadula chiwalo chimodzi chimodzi till they die of pains ….they r eating my tax in prison and will be happy shit

  7. chapwaila jnr. says:

    Well done to our law enforcers for arresting these demons,courts should give stiffer punishments. Above all,may the grace of GOD be with the bereaved families.

  8. The advert on MBC goes like this ; Presidential assurance on albino security!!!! ”My government has learned with shock on how albinos are brutally killed. I would like to assure all Malawians that my government will track down these criminals until we apprehend them”. I think this president does not know what to do on this issue. He likes to talk and yet he does nothing. I feel sorry for our brothers and sisters with albinism.

  9. When the country is ruled by devil, the people themselves become devilish.

    Sick nation. And you say “God fearing nation”. The clergy in Malawi have dismally failed to make any mark. This is a cursed nation

  12. Sabiti says:

  15. Zuze says:

    This is like prostitution, as long as you arrest the sellers and not the buyers, this trade will not stop.

  16. Masozi Mwenifumbo says:

    The love of money is the root of ALL EVIL. And you cannot worship both God and Mammon at the same time, for you will love the one and hate the other. It is MAN’S HEART PROBLEM ( A SPIRITUAL PROBLEM, NOT A PHYSICAL ONE), FOR WHICH THERE IS NO DOCTOR, HOSPITAL, CURE IN THIS UNGODLY AND ANTICHRISTIC WORLD, DESPITE ALL ITS APPARENT HUMANISTIC, PHILOSOPHICAL, TECHNOLOGICAL, AND NAME-WHAT PHYSICAL/NATURAL/EARTHLY ADVANCEMENT WE SEEM TO BE MAKING OUTSIDE THE CREATOR’S ONE AND ONLY ONE PERFECT WILL FOR ALL YAHWEH GOD’S CREATION IN CHRIST JESUS, NAMELY “GENUINE REPENTANCE AND CONVERSION OF SPIRIT, HEART, AND SOUL OR BEING TRULY TRULY BORN AGAIN AS THE SOLE LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF THE HEAVENLY LIVING GOD COMMANDED US ALL IN THE WORLD IN JOHN 3.”

    These ALBINO KILLINGS are a true reflection of the moral depravity and degeneration, and the pitiable state of THIS SEVENTH LAODICEAN (JUDGEMENT OF THE PEOPLE) CHURCH OF THESE VERY LAST DAYS, AND HENCE THE SOCIETY WE LIVE IN!!!!!! FOR HE RIGHTLY JUDGED US SO IN REVELATION 3:14-22, AND THIS IS THE FULL MESSAGE QUOTED HERE FOR US, “AND TO THE ANGEL OF LAODICEA WRITE: “THE WORDS OF THE AMEN, THE FAITHFUL AND TRUE WITNESS, THE ALPHA (BEGINNING) OF GOD’S CREATION. I KNOW YOUR WORKS: YOU ARE NEITHER HOT OR COLD. HOW I WOULD THAT YOU WERE EITHER COLD OR HOT!!! SO BECAUSE YOU ARE LUKEWARM, AND NEITHER HOT NOR COLD, I WILL SPIT YOU OUT OF MY MOUTH. FOR YOU SAY, ‘I AM RICH, I HAVE PROSPERED, AND I NEED NOTHING,’ NOT REALIZING THAT YOU ARE WRETCHED, PITIABLE, POOR, BLIND AND NAKED!!!!!!! I COUNSEL YOU TO BUY FROM ME GOLD REFINED BY FIRE, SO THAT YOU MAY BE RICH, AND WHITE GARMENTS SO THAT YOU CLOTHE YOURSELF AND THAT THE SHAME OF YOUR NAKEDNESS MAY NOT BE SEEN, AND EYE-SALVE TO ANOINT YOUR EYES, SO THAT YOU MAY SEE!!! THOSE WHOM I LOVE, I REPROVE AND CHASTEN, SO BE ZEALOUS AND REPENT!!! BEHOLD I STAND AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK. IF ANYONE HEARS MY VOICE AND OPENS THE DOOR, I WILL COME IN TO HIM AND EAT WITH HIM, AND HE WITH ME. THE ONE WHO CONQUERS, I WILL GRANT TO SIT WITH ME ON MY THRONE, AS I ALSO CONQUERED AND SAT DOWN WITH MY FATHER ON HIS THRONE, HE WHO HAS AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT SAYS TO THE CHURCHES!!!!!!!”

  18. Opinion says:

    These pple deserve life imprisonment…..They are a threat to the Albino brothers n sister

  19. NDANENA says:

    Kodi nkhanizi zikatha ndipo the culprilts have been jailed where do you keep the bones? Do you burn them just like Ganja? Or ?????? We need to Audit this.

  20. Betland says:

    Malawi must give me a chance to buy gun for albions. Pliz chikhale chitetezo chawo. Ndikuti azitha kuwombera okha munthu owapanga chipongwe.

  21. Akuzike Wamwamba says:

    This is like a different police ! may be its a borrowed police from uk

  22. Phwisa says:

    As the Police is still investigating it should hand over at least half of the arrested to the community of the victim for it to pass their own judgement. Its only i when this community administer mob justice on the arrested that they would feel Police has assisted them. If Police does not do this then iotchedwe police

  23. Peeping lizard says:

    ANTHU OKUPHA MA ALBINO NAWONSO AZIKAPHEDWA,OSATAYA NTHAWI NDIKUWAPITISA KU KHOTHI .KOMANSO KODI PALIBE MA ALBINO OPHUNZIRA?MUKANAWALEMBA NTCHITO YAUPOLICE CHIFUKWA PANGAYENDE CHILUNGAMO KOMANSO NDIMA VICTIMS

  24. TRUTH says:

    Good job done our Malawi police , this shows that our Malawi police is more advanced and they are the best than the CIA in America and Scotland Yard in UK , we should expect our Malawi police to arrest the killers of Jauju the ACB boss , also the young Malawi Polytechnic boy Chasowa and without forgeting arresting those NiB people who torched the warehouse in Lilongwe by the DPP diehard Nicholas Dausi , this should be done without fear or favour .

    There was much talk about the father of the stolen albino child being away to Mzuzu the time the albino child was being stolen , this gave many Malawians suspension , we are glad the owner and the father of the albino child has been arrested the same invastigations should be done to all suspicious cases which Malawians want the Malawi Police to deal with them without fear or favour.

  25. kanjipiti says:

    this is not true because malawi is a God fearing nation.

  26. Bwande says:

    These Albino killings were first reported in Tanzania. But you know a Malawi akamva chinthu. Now it is predominant in Malawi. Vuto la umbuli. Malawians tend to overdo anything. Lazy people. The government should seriously look into this as it is putting our country into shame. These criminals deserve a firing squad

    Koma zilikoeeeeeee. Tadzi waonetsani nkhope. Amenewo agendendedwe basi.

  29. maga says:

    lets treat albino pple the same way we do with others,this act is inhumane and the police must not show mercy to the culprits.Remember the bible says love your neighbour the way u love yourselves.
