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 name of getting rich.

    Pali mau amene timati Nyimbo imodzi sichezera, meaning kuti sitingamangolankhula zimodzimodzi, that is why Malawi can not be developed because anthu amene tikuganiza kudzawasankha kuti akhale atsogoleli akulephelanso kuganizako mopitililako pang’ono kuposako amene alipo zomwe zitikhazike pamodzimodzi ngati dziko osatukuka, komabe sizikhala za chilendo chifukwa mwina ndi mmene Malawi anapangidwila.

    Am not saying we need the best no, but we need some one who can stand with Malawians in all corners, East. West,South .North!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    God have mercy!!!!!
    God bless Malawi.

    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????????????????

  11. Pius Mbewe says:

    I dont see any logic of registering persons with albinism because albino’s follow under disability category which is well Been taken by MACOHA. Registering separately ipangisa nawonso omwe ali blind to registered on their own. Hence the bigginning of discrimination.What is needed is to tight security.

    APM PROMISED HE WOULD END QUOTA SYSTEM. APM PROMISED HE WOULD TRIM PRESIDENTIAL POWER. HE ALSO PROMISED HE WOULD NOT BE NEPOTISTIC. BUT WE SEE ALL THESE HAVE NOT BEEN DONE.

    WHY!!!

    When people go astray, it’s wise to give them a benefit of a doubt that they would rediscover themselves.
    . . . But if they keep going astray, its wise to tell them they are going astray, so long as in your quest to help them, you also dont get lost.

    Although many people previously echoed Uladi’s sentiments; the issue of registering albinos, hence knowing where they are, and thus assigning security officers to each one of them is not practical.
    . . . If it is practical, then it’s not sustainable.
    ………………………………………………………………………..
    You see . . .
    . . . this proposition by Uladi is built on a shaky foundation holding the assumption that the albino attackers always come from outside the albinos’ homes. However, recent revelations point at relatives (including fathers), as culprits.
    . . . How then will the security personnel (hiding in some bush outside the homes) protect an albino child when the predators (the father and mother) are right inside the house?
    . . . Only madness can see someone put a cat and a rat in one room, and wait outside with a big stick, in the name of protecting the rat.
    …………………………………………………………………………
    And to see that Uladi’s sentiments (on albinos) are mere political baderdash . . .
    . . . the first thing he intends to do on resumption of parliamentary session on the 20th; is to probe on how the govt has used the K900bn budget; not presenting a proposal for enmasse review of the useless country’s laws on albino hunters.

    . . . Truth be told, people like Chakwera and Uladi are missing a very great opportunity to score political points by waking up before the slumberous APM, and initiating a review of the country’s laws to impose the stiffest punishment on offenders.
    . . . If they can succeed in doing this, who can fail to rise up and salute and thank them with the country’s presidency in 2019?

    Alas, Chakwera is busy fighting for some freedom (whatever that is). And Uladi is here speaking nothing. Very irritating!
