Mulanje South member of Parliament (MP) Elias Bon Kalindo is ready to lead a march of naked protestors ( #NakedProtestMalawi ) on June 23 to push for the death sentence on perpetrators of abductions and killings of people with albinism.
Kalindo, who is ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislator and deputy spokesman, is calling the naked demo as “bring back death sentence campaign.”
He has since delivered notification letters to Malawi Police and Lilongwe City Council.
The demonstrations aim at expressing displeasure with continued atrocities against people with albinism in Malawi.
Kalindo said going out in the streets in birthday suits will be the only way to project the message that call for death sentence means business.
It is expected that a number of women have been persuaded to join the naked protests.
Organisers are appealing to those willing to take part to ensure they are clean shaven in their privates and that those who want to parade in pants should put only red in colour.
Analysts say the plans for naked demonstrations reflect a society desperate for government assistance.
If the naked demonstrations materialise, they will become the first in Malawi’s history.
