Last push! PAC endorses CSOs March 27 demonstrations 

Quasi religiously body, the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) has thrown its weight behind the March 27 peaceful demonstrations organised by some civil society organisations.

Fr Mulomole: PAC endorses peaceful demonstrations

The civil society organisations activists have organised the protests to press the government  against poor governance, rise in corruption and the abduction and killings of persons with albinism.

HRDC chairperson Timothy Mtambo said the nation seemed clueless on how to decisively deal with the problem which, he said, was escalating everyday.

Spokesperson for PAC Father Peter Mulomole said the civil society activists have  a good cause for the peaceful demonstrations.

“This is a good cause. We will encourage our members to join the demonstrations,” said Mulomole.

The Association of People with Albinism in Malawi (Apam) has also organized a vigil at Kamuzu Palace on March 3 to exert pressure on President Peter Mutharika to take firm action on the protection of people with albinism.

One person with albinism has been killed this year in Nkhata Bay, two persons with albinism abducted in Karonga and Dedza and two others rescued in Machinga and Lilongwe since January this year.

But a pro-government civil rights activist Fyson Chozi implored on the people with albinism to seek an audience with President Mutharika.

“It is within their rights to hold a vigil but I think engaging the President in talks over the issue would be ideal,” said Chozi.

Apam members met vice president and president of the UTM Party Saulos Chilima on Friday.

Chilima said  they discussed solutions to the resurgent attacks.

Stop politicising the safety of our relatives of albino people this is a serious issue if voters are being killed who is going to vote for these politicians? I commend PAC for taking actions its about high time the government should be serious about our security . if the government can not protect its citizens then it is a failed state. Its very pathetic to see that Malawians are being taken for a ride by these politicians, they don’t care about our lives.

Dudu u r indeed dull , killing albinism it’s not about election being around the corner. We need to safeguard our brothers and sisters where the government seems to have no clue on how to end this barbaric attack on people with Albinism. So stop your nosense of trying to politicise everything even if life is being lost. I have never participated in marching or demonstrating before but this time around i’ll come to Nyasaland and join the marchers bcoz it’s for good cause indeed. So hate it or take it but we are going to March no matter what… Read more »

Truth pains, what has Mulomole said about a Catholic priest killing an albino? You and Mulomole are dishonest about the whole albino problem.

Dudu, if it was you or your family members being hunted and killed, will u wait for elections to happen first before taking some measure to protect yourself or your family member? It is this mentality of not caring for others (selfishness) that our country and leaders are playing a soft ball on the issues. Even if it was election day, human life is more precious than elections. If it was the leader or his children being hunted because they are albino, will he/she be busy with elections leaving his/ her safety or that of his children compromised as the… Read more »

Caregiver, the last time I checked it was a Catholic priest who killed an albino. Probably, you and Mulomole don’t know this.
