The Association of People with Albinism in Malawi (APAM) has bemoaned stigma in the country, arguing that it is fueling attacks and killings of people with albinism.

Massa (C) worried.

Speaking after a meeting with President Peter Mutharika at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe, APAM president Boniface Masa said stigma is perpetrating the malpractice.

“The problem is stigma, whenever they see us they are saying they have seen money not their fellow human beings, and this is not good at all,” said Masa.

Masa further said government needs to put much effort in combating the malpractice arguing that people with albinism will be wiped out if government fails to put strong protection measures.

On his part, Mutharika assured APAM that his government will strive to put to an end killings of people with albinism in the country.

Malawi has recorded 14 cases of kidnappings, 28 cases of exhuming graves believed to be of people with albinism, 6 cases of killings, 3 cases of missing people, 1 case of likely to cause a breach of peace and 12 cases of people found in possession of human bones.

  5. Courts ‘must’ not force the people to think otherwise by passing sentences of years instead of the death sentence & hanging ‘must’ be done before we begin to see lack of seriousness on Government part & no human rights org. should ever try to defend these muderers cos this will mean them being part.

  6. Solution to this problem; Gather all albinos who are 18 and above, give them a very small military training, teach them minor security details, give them licensed personal guns(revolvers).

  10. This an evil happening in our eyes and this calls all peoples to rise up against this wickedness including the faith groups. Apart from barbaric its witchcraft, satanism meant to wipe out our fellow brethren who are not different from us. In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ I pray against this evil and I speak life upon every Albino as I destroy every demonic spirit pursuing them
