Uladi blasts DPP over albino killings: ‘Malawi govt has lost focus, direction’

The opposition Peoples Party (PP)  acting president Uladi Mussa has once again hit at the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), accusing it of losing focus and direction as evidenced by what he said the increasing numbers of the killings of people with albinism and persistent shortage of food.

“The government was supposed to register each and every person with albinism, know where they are, assign police officers to protect them. But look, the government does not even know how many people with albinism we have in Malawi, this is ridiculous” he said.

He was speaking on Sunday in Mangochi at a political rally.

Mussa also said when parliament starts meeting on May 20, opposition parliamentarians will demand to know how the government has used the K900 billion national budget parliament approved, alleging there were indications the government has abused some money.

He also said the government seems not to know with the persistent food shortage, saying it has put little money for the purchase of maize fearing this will result in many people dying of hunger this year.

The PP leader said there was need to set aside up to K20 billion for the purchase of maize if the country is to be food secure this year.

In addition, Mussa said, the government should intensify massive irrigation projects and programs across the country so that next year, the country should not import maize.

However, cabinet ministers and senior Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials who were dispatched to the north over the weekend for party meetings gave a different message to the people.

Minister of Information Patricia Kaliati speaking n Mzuzu said the government has put in place sound measures to ensure everyone will not die of hunger and that people with albinism are being protected.

Minister of Trade and Industry Joseph Mwanamvekha in Karonga said the government has delivered some of its campaign promises and will continue do so.

Uladi is not genuine. Did he think of the same when he was pocketing money from Rwandees and Burundians? Are the Burundians and Rwandees not masterminders of the belief that albinos bones fetch money. This is stupidity at its best. You people think of realities here and not rhetorics

I may agree with you ANALYST some points in your comment here, The problem of our Politicians is that sometimes they wait for the public to debate issues, that’s when you will see them coming with the same point just because they are speaking to many people at one place. Just take what Mr PP Pulezidenti is saying, he said it last week if am not mistaken to the same people i mean Malawians amene akudziwa ndithu kuti we are mourning our brothers and sisters who have been killed by their own Uncles, brothers, sisters and even Fathers in the… Read more »

You can only lose focus if you had one in the first place. With DPP, nothing is lost! It’s the same blindness that was there at the beginning.

tell them!!! In Kamuzu era, Bingu era, Bakili era, and JB era we haven’t seen such mass killings of Albinos in our country. But with the coming in of Moya APM things have changed in our country, very bad leadership indeed. Please speedup the issuing of Identity Cards to every citizen so that the police are able to trace and track down criminals! Its very easy for police to identify any criminals or illegal immigirants if citizens have id cards, but it seems APM is not learned i dont know why????????????????
