People with Albinism to proceed with State House vigils

Association of People with Albinism (Apam) has said it is going ahead with its planned vigil at State House on March 6 to 8  despite President Peter Mutharika  addressing most of the concerns that Apa, outlined as the basisfor the vigils.

A group of persons with albinism had met President Mutharika at Kamuzu Palace on Thursday where the Malawi leader made new committments

Mutharika during the meeting with persons with albinism (PWAs)  at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe on Thursday committed that government will start funding a four-year National Action Plan.

But  defiant Apam president Overtone Kondowe said  pledges will not stop the vigils, saying  association is tired with government paying  “lip service” on  their security concerns.

“Apam is not looking for promises  because we have  received such promises from the Head of State three times at the State House and even other promises from Cabinet ministers. What we are looking  for this time around is action not pledges,” said Kondowe.

Kondowe said if the vigils do not yield results, Apam will demand that Malawi be declared an unsafe zone and they will seek help so that  people with albinism seek asylum in other countries.

Kalulu, you must be crazy. Ntata – (Bingu’s boy) fighting for his stomach. Kenani- an attention seeker who thinks of himself highly than he really is. Lucius Banda – a fraudster who faked his certificate. Kamlepo – an opportnunist who only talks to get money. Usi a dunderhead who has made a living out of being a clown and managed to get a PhD from UK backdoor university….

Blaming the President or government is a waste of time, it’s just because the opposition wants to gain political mileage! Otherwise the community policing can do better than the police in uniform!

The issue of albino killings is complicated though we are blaming others, if the relatives are involved, brothers,sisters, parents who can we trust? Kodi mutaona alubino akupita kumunda ndi mayi/bambo, brother wake inu mungawaletse kuti asapitile limodzi? Popeza akumatero atapangana ndi a chiwembu kumbaliko inu muziti ali ndi bambo ake so ali safe.

Wiseman, you’re peddling Dausi’s discredited lie. Whether it’s their relatives who betray Albinos or not, the government has its role to play in stamping out the malpractice and it’s failing miserably.

The President made pledges but he did not state when it will be implemented. Akukunamizani. No time scale. Bodza lenileni.
