Mutharika cares really? Persons with albinism reject APM branded alarms

Association of People with Albinism (Apam)  has rejected the security gadgets which the government bought to aid in monitoring the security of people with albinism because  they are inscribed “APM Cares” – apparently refrerring to President Arthur Peter Mutharika.

The gadgets come in blue colour  and are inscribed “APM Cares”.

Apam Deputy General Secretary Ian Simbota said they are against the personalisation of the 1 600 security gadgets .

Simbota said it is wrong to personalize property bought using tax-payers’ money.

“It is one big question that I think a serious organisation like Apam shouldn’t just look at it and let it go. We are not ready to look as if we were siding with anyone,” Simbota said.

He added: “If you look at guns, which the police and the Malawi Defence Force have, you will not find anything like ‘APM cares’, you will not find anything like ‘Bakili Muluzi cares’ or ‘Bingu cares’ because they were bought within the time such leaders were in power. So, why are those security gadgets written ‘APM cares’? We, as an association, can’t subscribe to that and we are not ready to use that and until it becomes neutral.”

Human Rights Defenders Coalition  (HRDC) chairperson Timothy Mtambo has backed Apam’s stand to reject the blue gadgets, saying nobody, including the incumbent Head of State should be using people because of their vulnerability.

“Somebody should not use national resources for campaign. That’s actually unacceptable. APM did not take the money from his pocket,” Mtambo said.

@Anzelu ndi Anzelu the albinos’ lives are already at risk from APM Govt & the gargets labelling of APM Cares is to fool them coz the killings origin is DPP lead Govt. This culture of personalizing tax payers money with the ruling party is pure theft & insult to Malawian lets hope Chilima & Usi put it to stop after 21st May.

@Kanyimbi mwaonesa kale kuti mulimbali yiti. This issue of killing albinos inayamba ku Tanzania, then Mozambique, after that Malawi. The chief culprits behind this are these satanic witchdoctors who are promising people riches and lucky charms through albino tissues. DPP officials may be implicated, yes. But let’s cast the net wider because there are others also who may be involved. This being an election month and with so much smear campaigns, I smell a rat in those accusing others. After elections, when there is all-round sobriety, then we will know who the real killers are.

@ Anzelu

We are talking about killings of persons with albinism and the information we have is that the mutharika led government is involved. Musanamizire asing’anga please . The names have been mentioned and we all know them. Is this rocket science for you to understand?. Incase you haven’t heard the names mentioned well I will volunteer them to you. It’s mutharika, mussa, Dausi and ntaba

Just leave them Mr President, these people of Apam are being used by opposition so whatever you can do for them will never appreciate by complain of it so leave them to do whatever they want to do with their lives but don’t mind then again if they will need your help. They are fully politically used.

The sooner DPP gets out of the government the better. I can put a bet here.. once DPP gets out of government, that will be the end of DPP. At least UDF has survived… DPP will become extinct. Mark these words. Take a screenshot.
