Extreme Gender based violence where someone is murdered, the people or rather the murders involved should be arrested. Once people realize there are consequences to murdering these helpless old women they will stop. Further probe which witch doctor mentioned the woman as the alleged killer, that one too should be arrested. We need to put this uncivilized barbaric culture to rest and develop mentally as a nation.

Death sentences need to be effected. Malawians no longer value other people’s lives knowing pretty well that they will not lose theirs. As a country we have effectively promoted the rights of an accused person but not the victim’s and our actions have caused so much problems to the victims’ beneficiaries.’

The major problem is that the alledged witches and wizards admit and accept the allegations that they are wizards and that they killed the dead hence the beatung mostly. Unles they admit under duress
