    Pure idiots who don’t deserve to be alive. Police send the guy to ISIS for proper justice not some silly corrupt magistrates court

  13. Issa Kabudula says:

    This is human rights violation – where some people must live in fear due to their skin colour. There is need of the people as Malawians in general to stand on this madness of the Albino killing and terrorism. Boma means all of us, therefore lets assist each other as we are the Boma to fight;
    a. terrorism on Albinos
    b. Umbanda of any type
    c. Kudana pakati pathu and
    e. Jelousy

    With the above, we can easily develop Malawi within few years, its unfortunate to be rated the poorest of the poor – among many countries all over the world, even if that rating can be false but we know that we are yes poor.
