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


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.


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


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.

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.

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.
