Tembenu said this in parliament on Friday after legislators temporary set aside their political differences to condemn the recent spate of the killings.

The Justice Minister  said the cases are under review because of lenient sentences in some cases.

Speaker Richard Msowoya had allowed a petition from Fedoma to be discussed in the 193 strong House.

On Thursday, Bon Kalindo, Mulanje South MP told the House that those involved in the killings should be handed down death sentences and themselves killed instead of life sentences.

Meanwhile, Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda has since directed that cases of abductions and killings of people with albinism should be handled by chief resident magistrates, principal resident magistrates and senior resident magistrates.
