The Association of People with Albinism in Malawi (APAM) has expressed shock at the return of attacks against people with albinism in the country.

President of the association, Boniface Massa, said in the past three months abductions and killings of people with albinism have increased and are affecting them.

Massa (C) worried.

“’It is unfortunate that the abductions and killings of people with albinism has reappeared and it has affected people with albinism in such a way that they are failing to participate in community activities, going to school as well as doing business,” said Massa.

Massa says the resurfacing of the attacks is due to the legal weakness in the country.

“There are lenient punishments given to people who are found exhuming graves of people with albinism in the country and there is no proper investigations when it comes to the handling of such cases by police,” he said.

He further said that most stakeholders like non-governmental organisations have not shown interest in finding out government’s stand on the issue.

According to Massa, even chiefs have not taken a role to speak against the malpractice.

He therefore called on all Malawians to fight against abductions, killings and exhuming of people with albinism.
