Malawi Police Services in Machinga say they are investigating an attack on a woman with albinism last week which left her serious injuries.
The 33-year-old Dorothy Jeffrey said her attackers broke into her house and wanted to kill her but she managed to escape after struggles.
The incident happened at Moliha village in chief Kawinga’s area in Machinga.
Association of Persons with Albinism in Malawi (Apam) president Ian Simbota condemned the attack.
“There is need to bust the market for human parts. Experts need to be engaged to investigate the matter and deal with the market,” Kondowe said.
He called on the government to roll out the program of construction of houses for persons with albinism in the country.
“Most of people with albinism live in dilapidated houses, this is why attackers are able to break in,” he said.
Meanwhile, Family Rights, Elderly and Child Protection (FRECHIP) says it is deeply disturbed by the attack.
The organisation’s executive director Esmie Tembenu urges all Malawians not to tolerate any form of abuse against minorities especially people living with albinism whom she said have for a long time been subjected to this barbaric act.
