Malawi unveil 6-point strategy to foil albino ritual killers

Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security Cecilia Chazama has said Malawi Police has a six-point safety strategy to foil abduction and albino ritual killing in the country.

Chazama: Police has six strategies to ensure greater safety for albinos

In a ministerial statement presenter in Parliament in Lilongwe on Fridayon the status of cases handled by the Malawi Police related to attacks on persons living with albinism,  Chazama said the strategies include planting informants across the country who will provide police with tips on criminal syndicate.

Chazama said government has embarked on the  strategies to ensure greater safety for people living with albinism while they enjoy their normal interactions with their community members.

The minister said community leaders will also be involved in the strategy.

In his contribution, Member of Parliament for Mulanje South Bon Kalindo suggested that people living with albinism be given their own, well-guarded village.

Kalindo said his suggestion for  safe albino villages was an idea he learnt during a recent visit to Mongolia, in China, where those ostracised for their skin pigmentation problems live in special villages.

But Chazama said it was improper to isolate any group of people, even if it were for security reasons.

Take this. Govt should not fool us by coming up with the so called six what so ever plan. The big fish in govt are responsible and they know what is happening.

During the UDF era, in the famous Chiradzulu murders and their associated mysterious crimes, it was the Big fish himself manoeuvring around strategies at night while preaching a different kind of gospel on podiums during rallies and… Read more »

So Mtabas committee was another was yet another method of stealing tax payers money? The police has a six point plan, which police? Are these not the same people accused of hiding 15 files of cases related to albino killings? The police in Malawi went to sleep as soon as Peter Muthalika became president. I also forgot that we have somebody called Chazama in this country.

Malawi’s two greatest enemies are ignorance and superstition, which includes belief in the power of African medicine. Even so-called educated people continue to belief in the latter.

Kalindo you have missed completely. Ever heard of inclusiveness? China is not a country from which you can learn anything to do with humanism

This is another waste of time and energy. 6-point strategy after so many years. Albino killings will intensify under the so called strategy. DPP has failed Malawians big time. give the government to those who can run it well and are serious about looking after velnurable people.

DPP-led government has just run out of steam; they can’t even guarantee security for ordinary citizens in their own homes. No one is safe. today its albino, tomorrow is women and the following day will be bald men. DPP honchos are just focusing on eating at the trough and are taking the people who voted for them as an inconvinience and lepers. DPP please introspect into your intentions.
