Pay K5 million ‘albino bounty’ to Yohane, Kaliati advises Mutharika

President Peter Mutharika should pay the K5 million bounty to Alfred Yohane who has named people being involved in killings of Persons with Albinism (PWAs).

Kaliati: Yohane has revealed in court so pay him the bounty

Mutharika promised the K5 million pay out when he met persons with albinism in Lilongwe earlier this year.

Now Yohane, a suspect in the murder case of 22-year-old MacDonald Masambuka, a person with albinism, revealed in the Hoigh Court registry in Zomba that among the top people involved in the killings of people with albinism was Mutharika’s own aide Dr Hertherwick Ntaba.

“Mutharika promised that anyone who will come up with information on the killings of people with albinism will receive K5 million and we heard in court in Zomba that Yohane has given this information.

“Yohan should be given his money as promised, ” said Kaliati during a televised campaign rally at Mponda Freedom Park in Zomba on Sunday.

The revelations by Yohane has sent jitters in the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  confirming fears that powerful people are behind the killings.

Since November 2014, the number of reported crimes against people with albinism in Malawi has risen to more 150 cases, including at least 23 murders and seven attempted murders, according to public records.

There is a myth that  PWAs are targeted for their body parts for rituals some people believe bring magical powers, including those that can make one rich.

But the Society of Medical Doctors has dismissed such beliefs, stating that PWAs are no different from any other person apart from the skin, hair and eye colour.

Reads a flyer from the doctors condemning the attacks: “Albinism is an inherited condition characterised by lack of ability to produce a pigment that affects vision, hair and skin known as melanin. People with more melanin are darker than those with less melanin.”

Who gives a bounty to an accused for naming and shaming suspected accomplices? Kaliati is so dull. How on earth did we ever end up with such ignoramuses as MPs and cabinet ministers. If this is a foretaste of a UTM government then we better watch out.

The lawmakers, presidential candidates we have do not have the slightest idea how the law works. These are people we entrust with our country to negotiate international trade contracts on our behalf in a foreign language.

Mr. Buleya was mentioned by somebodywe all screamed “there is no smoke without fire” Yes there is always smoke without fire depending on how you look at it. We mentioned that he was most likely innocent but instead of focusing our attention on the ones who admitted involvement (ones who mentioned Buleya) here we are!

That’s the problem with dull people like Kaliati. 14 years in cabinet as Minister and you don’t understand how things work. You mention a name and when they are convicted or catch them red-handed or with evidence then you know that the information given is credible. If father Muhosha mentions Chilima or Chakwera what are we going to say. Pay him as well.

So let me get this straight. You want the President to reward a suspect in a murder case? What kind of drugs are you people on? Mukupengatu.

True. let Mutharika pay Mr Yohane as per promise. He promised that he will give K5 million to any one who will mention the name of Albino killers and buyers. The only challenge is that his own guys are involved here!
