Dzuka Malawi: After we hunt all albinos, let us go for Ntaba’s solar panel!

To no on we will sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice.” – Magna Carta, 1215

All Malawians are albino hunters. Yes starting with you reading this entry. You can imagine what a foreigner thinks when he hears the name Malawi. Amnesty International has launched campaign to press Malawian authorities to address the growing attacks on albino hunters. What is the reaction of you and me, silent and business as usual.Dzuka Malawi

People across the world can visualise our political leaders dressed in suits, our Bishops, Prophets (the fake and real), Judges in wigs, soldiers and ordinary plebeians like you and me at a market, where some successful Albino hunters come and do an auction. We bid and compete and the biggest winners take these MWK1.1 billion worth of bones and sale wherever the market is.

If you don’t believe this visualisation then you have never been to Malawi, from that “official opening of ….ujeni”  to our small markets right outside mosques, churches and temples, every Malawian is busy indulging in selling of albinos. I see you are about to type an “f” word. Hold on.

There are devils festivals in Europe, celebrating Satan. In Malawi we do it by killing albinos and all of us clap hands. The most superstitious nation is Haiti here voodoo priests are revered and even run for Parliament. They are late, in Malawi all our MPs are albino hunters.

Next time you see any leader, be a politician or a religious or  traditional leader, tell them they look like albino hunters or buyers of bones.

Why? Silence is golden they say, but they also say it is consent. Our actions and reactions sometimes can be said to come from our silence. Our silence when our brothers, sisters and children with albinism are being hunted as kalulu or gwape, killed for their bones, abducted and even by own Uncles means we are all in support of the killings.

Without belittling impact of our social media campaign, a terror group bombs a foreign airport and 35 people die, Malawian Facebookers change their faces, mourn and are angry with terrorists. Over 50 albinos killed, they can’t write a single status to condemn the killings. They are the killers themselves.

All of us come from the areas where reports of killings are being reported. We come from Kasungu, we come from Machinga- interestingly two Presidents have come from these two albino killers. I have wondered why the silence from Kasungu, Mulanje and Machinga gurus. Is it guilt by association or we are the real albino hunters.

Imagine, non of the vocal Civil Society thinks it high time to hold demonstrations in all districts against killing of persons with albinism. Imagine our churches who can call for national prayers against homosexuality pretend nothing is going amiss in Malawi today.

To me, killing an albino is okey than having gay people. The media too is part of this. The way they cover gay peoples stories even staged attacks and the way they have covered the killings of fellow human beings.

I will not apologise to anyone for thinking everyone who has access to social media or is a leader either in politics, church, mosque or civil society, chief or even Rastafarians and all of us are albino killers.

Imagine Chiefs if it was something to do with PAC calling the President to resign, we could have had long broadcasts of condemnation against the poor organisation which looks confused to some of us.

As long as there is no national movement to stop albino killings, we are all complicit to their death and we should not blame gays, whom we condemn loudly when calamities befell us. The God-fearing tag is wearing thin and we are becoming a joke of the world, known as murderers.

The belief that money can come from witchcraft, superstition or some spiritual form is a joke for some foolish and gullible people. Tell your uncles, aunties and all village folks, money is printed at Reserve Bank and each bank note has a serial number.

There is no miracle money, just as there is not money from albino bones. You work hard and you earn your money. Each note serial note is traceable. Even prayers from any  ‘Pastorprenuer’ cannot rain money. If they can, let us meet at a Stadium and let money rain from sky, I will worship them.

Tell your wards, albinism is a skin condition. The bones and body organs are the same. People with albinism have donated hearts, livers and kidneys to people with normal skins. None has turned. They have donated blood, none has changed the recipient into an albino. We are all human.

For our media, it should remind us that we have been on this path as before. We have had womens breasts cut off in Chiradzulo for riches, nobody got rich. We lost nine women. Then someone invented that male organs, especially big ones for those aged 18 to 40 could fetch you a car. Poor gondolisi lovers had their penises and balls cut off, most of them got rotten before any buyer could be found.

We then had selling of children. This too ended in misery for perpetrators.

I am thinking that after we hunt and kill all albinos, killing people with bald heads could also make us rich. Imagine the biggest and brightest solar panels belong to Dr. Hetherwick Ntaba at Kamuzu Palace and Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda. I know many friends who are now in bald head hiding solar panels, but at the rate we get excited by all stupid suggestions of how to get quickly, solar panels could be the next gold mine.

If you are not an albino hunter, raise the awareness, speak to your village folks, organise prayers, rallied and demonstrations. Let there be a pastoral letter in all churches, music concerts and all the noise we do against gays or terrorist to guarantee that all those with such intentions know Malawians are angry with them. If I don’t see a post on your social media, you are an albino hunter period.

Dzuka my Malawi, money only comes from hard work. That’s why is distressing to hear that Boxing Association of Malawi and Basketball Association of Malawi have sent a collective request of MWK76 million to Prophet Bushiri. Which basketball or which boxing these thieves represent, I am yet to see if we have ashamed faces.

In the same vein, let me pay tribute to late Ulemu Teputepu who was a journalist and died on 30thApril in South Africa. I grew up with Ulemu in Zomba and later our careers made us meet again. He might have not gone to the highest levels of journalism but his passion was evident. He was the only journalist to be granted interview by Pastor Hastings Salanje of “embarrassed blessings riches.” Go well young man. Greet our departed leaders and tell them we are now hunting albinos for riches….

If Malawi will change we need this writer as a President. He is our own Magufuli. He thinks outside the box. What are foreigners thinking when they hear Malawi. Not lake Malawi but albino killings. Let all Malawians work to restore our image. Bravo Rudo, u are always a special voices.

A passionate cry for help; a classic cris de coeur. And a PWA (Person With Albinism) could have written this appeal, and still probably make little difference because all our leaders – political, cultural, religious etc. do not seem to have the guts to take this fight to the next level(s). To wit: the personal and even national levels. And this what the writer is after: and power to him/her. This country of ours, the so-called God fearing nation, is so lethargic on this moral issue as to make a sloth faster in action. This is an issue which, by… Read more »

Great piece. I agree with the writer. We are all a docile rotten bunch of idiots who have been for years sitting pwii while the so called leaders do nothing other than CLEANING OUR COFFERS. THE LIKES OF MULUZI BINGU AFTER HIM AND JOYCE BANDA AND NOW THIS CLUELESS THIEF! tHEY ARE ALL ALBINO HUNTERS. THEY DONT CARE ABOUT YOU AND ME. THEIR ONLY MOTIVATION TO GET INTO POLITICS IS SO THAT THEY HAVE ACCESS TO STATE RESOURCES. lOOK AT MUTHALIKA WHAT HAS HE DONE ON ISSUES THAT CONCERN US ALL.

Amateurish writing! Utter nonsense. Killing people with albinism is not a joking matter.
