Step father confesses to killing boy with albinism for rituals: Malawi Police arrest him

Association of People with Albinism in Malawi (Spam) has expressed shock that the 12 year boy with albinism in Phalombe has been found dead and that his step father has confessed to police that he poisoned him.

The ritual murders of people with albinism in Malawi still continue

Apam president Overtone Kondowe said the step father, who has been arrested, has confessed to have poisoned the boy after conniving with people who wanted to buy his body parts for rituals.

“This is a real concern. These attacks are perpetrated by relatives who are supposed to protect us. It is tragic that all the efforts the government has put in place, the CSOs are doing, ourselves have put in place are yielding nothing,” he said.

He said it was disappointing that some people still think body parts of a person with albinism can enrich people.

The boy with albinism, Joseph Kachingwe went missing on July 6 and his body has been recovered on Tuesday.

This is sad, I think these people should be hanged, there is no point in giving them a life sentence when they have taken somebodies life. I know there are some people who will talk about human rights. Are they more human than the life they have taken away? You keep them in prison they will keep on draining our taxes to be alive, when they are ill they will be taken to the hospital so that they can live, no they do not deserve this.

May His Soul Rest in Peace. I hope all accomplices have been arrested. Padayambira nkhani yamalubino paja anthu onse opezeka olakwa akadati naonso akuphedwa pano zitatha kalekale. Alubini ndi munthu. Baibulo imati opha nzache nayenso aphedwe. Oh God bless Malawi and keep it a land of peace.
