Association of Persons with Albinism in Malawi (APAM) has given government 30 days to release findings of an inquiry which was probing killings, abductions and attacks of persons with albinism.

President Peter Mutharika set up the commission of inquiry in 2019 to probe into the matter after 24 persons with albinism were killed and over 160 were attacked.

APAM president Ian Simbota said the commission was supposed to present ts findings to president Mutharika in April 2019.

“We don’t why the commission is failing to make public the contents of the report. This is why we are giving them 30 days to make the findings public,” said Simbota.

Simbota could however not say what APAM would should the commission fail to make public the report.

This comes after an albino killer suspect, who is a police officer implicated presidential aide Hetherwick Ntaba as part of the albino killing syndicate.

This is the second witness in the ongoing murder case of Macdonald Masambuka to mention Ntaba.

This was disclosed during the court hearing of the murder of Masambuka at the High Court in Blantyre.

Chikondi Chileka is a suspect in the case and worked at Nselema police station in Machinga and  his lawyer Timothy Chirea  said his client was implicated in the matter as a scapegoat to cover up the top government officials mentioned.

APAM should be aware that Commissions of Inquiries are political strategies to cool down burning hearts. Malawian history has taught us all. They should not bother asking for the report because there are no reports. APAM is asking APM to lie. DPP isn’t a foolish party. It cant investigate itself as key suspects are in its the rank and file. APAM should have conducted its own investigations. Bear with me 30 days will run out without the so called report. APAM how do you expect Ntaba to investigate Ntaba as clever and eloquent as he is?

But what is so special about Hertherwick Ntaba. The duty of the Commission is to identify the culprits and bring them to book. Why can they not arrest Ntaba so that he can give his version of the story. The Constitution of Malawi clearly stipulates all are equal before the Law. So why some are seemingly more equal than others. Failure of the Rule of Law.Those who sit on this Ntaba issue should also be brought to book because they are directly failing the Law.
