Missing person with albinism body found

Malawi Police say they have received a report that the body of  a person with albinism in Mangochi has been found.

Victims of a growing trade in albino body parts.

Dyton Saidi, 26, went missing on January 27, 2021 and has been found dead today.

Mangochi Police Station spokesperson, Rodrick Maida  has confirmed the development.

His brutal killing brought fears that killings of people with albinism has resurrected.

The UN, Malawi Human Rights Commission and other bodies have called on authorities to stop the killings.

Police have arrested three people so far in the middle of Saidi and say investigations are still going on to arrest more people.

This nonsense must CEASE immediately before the world loses it patience with the the government’s inaction. Who ever are behind this HEINOUS CRIMES against the defenceless albinos must be held accountable and punished according to to the law. This have gone on for far too long must promptly cease. I appeal to all civilised members of the Malawian society to come forward and join help, support, and stand together in solidarity to condemn this SAVAGERY.

For as long as there are no convictions to write home about, these killings will be regular news. Can the Justice Ministry please appraise us on the Masambuka case where prominent people, Ntaba included, were implicated? Hefty jail sentences are meant to stem henious crimes but we don’t see such as far as albinos killings are concerned.

This is very sad. I find the statement that the UN and MHRC have asked authorities to stop the killing, very misplaced. Are authorities killing the albinos??? If they wish to be helpful, let them come up with concrete offers of support to address this problem. I dont speak for the authorities, but I assume they are doing everything they can to stop this. Its not working obviously, so they need assistance. Let the UN bring in its muscle to help address this. Talking and expressing outrage alone wont help

‘The UN and HRC have asked the authorities to stop the killings’ is ambiguous and has two meanings. It may mean that: (i) the authorities are doing the killings and they are being asked to stop it, or (ii) since the authorities are in charge, they are being asked to do everything possible in their power using the security at their disposal to apprehend the people doing the killings so that these can stop. My belief is that the second meaning is the most likely one that the reporter was communicating and not the first one and it seems ‘Guest’… Read more »
