Dempster Chigwenembe

Dempster Chigwenembe made the observation.

The Malawi police have landed the blame on parents of kids with albinism for the abductions and killings which are making news on a daily basis in the country.

Malawi’s Commissioner of Police for the Southern Region, Dempster Chigwenembe, ordered all his officers in the region to arrest parents and guardians of albinos whenever their children goes missing.

Addressing officers during a familiarisation tour of Mulanje Police Station over the weekend, Chigwenembe said parents and guardians are responsible in ensuring the safety and security of their children and wards.

The commissioner’s order comes when abductions and killings of people with albinism are on increase to an extent that two days cannot pass without hearing on the local media cases of people with albinism being killed.

However, some days ago, the state president of the republic of Malawi, Peter Mutharika, advised the Malawi Police Service (MPS) to jack up and end the malpractice immediately.

  1. Its every citizens right to be protected by the state therefore government must take the serious measures before people loose their partience

  2. Our police has failed us why are they putting the blame to poor and helpless parents of the albino’s. Once the killers are caught, they should lead the polce to the arrest of the buyers. There is no justice in Malawi hence the the blame. If there is no market for albinos. What is motivating the killers to continue with the killing. The one behind this are big names I can guess. For instance, who is the God father and mother of Cashgate?. No where to be seen. The best way is to do mob justice like what the people Nsanje did. If we want our dear bothers and sisters who were born albinism to be saved.

  6. Let me get a closer look @ the speeches by the state president & southern region police commissioner. The president commands the police to pull up their socks but the commissioner openly defies him that it is the parents who should pull up their socks. This is called defiance of authority. As for me, I know that the president is right. Much as some relations of albinos might might be involved in this sinister activity, it might not be always true. Parents, guardians, relatives, mates, enemies, neighbours or non of the above could be involved. The whole episode is a shadow of unclear & that’s why you come as professionals & that is why the president addressed the police & not parents. My free advice is, ‘never perform duties under the influence.’

  7. Let me start off by saying fuck da police and Malawian gvt these mothefuckers are the reason why albinos are not safe, how could u sentence 25 years to those two pple who killed innocent albino, the sentence was so soft they were suppose to be given a life sentence, make it harder for every motherfucker ataphe ma albinos

  8. that’s being so stupid and wicked. what is he? to say so? look at your penis, is behind trousers, short-trouser, pant but asks you that it needs movements. what more with a human being. if your tongue is full of such stingy words you better have it cut.

  9. kulankhula kopusako asiye wapolisi ameneyo. ndikhoza kumakutukana mpaka iwe kupuma ntchito wekha pomodzi ndi amene akumakutumawo. kodi amene akuphedwa ndi ana okhaokha. ndikhoza kusiya kusiya kupanga makomenti kapena posting zimene ndimafuna nkumapanga za iwe. sindimasekerera zopusa. ife tikulimbana kuti n’chitidwe uthe iwe ukulankhula chala chala kwii kunyelo. pempha holiday sabata imodzi ukalape pakhomo pako. usadzabwerezenso.

  10. Sopano anawo school asiyatu nanga makolo azimka nawo kusukulu mkwadikila pa break aende nawo poweluka mkumapita nawoso ?.sopano ma albino ama 20 ‘s Wa oti alibe makolo ndeazienda ndindani ??. Ndekuti ma albino alibiletu ufulutu ocheza ndazizawo,opita Ku xul okha kaya kuti !!..tasakani njila INA yothesela khalidweli bwa !!.

  11. Mtendere padziko lapansi siudzapezekanso kufikira pomwe Yesu adzalamulire kwa zaka 1000 tiyeni tisamare tisakhale gawo limodzi ndi uchimo! Mau amulungu

  12. Putting the blame on powerless parents of albino children is very unfair and lack of professionalism on the part of the police. The Malawi police need to do what their Zambian counterparts are doing in Zambia, and that is getting to the core of the problem. If people can risk all and embark on the business of killing albinos or digging out their remains in cemeteries means there is big market out there. It means there are buyers and end users. It is this group of people that need to be dealt with. Once the market is removed, this whole gruesome business will collapse. And this is how Zambia is dealing with this problem.
    Surely we don’t need a rocket scientist to figure this out.

  13. Makolo akulilira mwana wawo, kupezekenso kuti apolisi akuwagwira. olo uli iwe, chigwenembe, mwana wa NJOKA iwe. ungamve bwanji buluzi iwe?????

  14. I only disagree wth this commissioner whn it comes to who to arrest( it shouldnt be automatic to parents or guardians, etc)! Bt still there is some sense in his remarks bcoz somebody from Neno can hardly trace a grave or house of an albino from Supuni village in Mulanje! There should be somebody there at Supuni who is a relative to the victim(& may be u know him/her) but our poorly equiped police don’t know that! hav u eva thought of reporting such an issue to your nearest police? lol

  15. zoonadi a Police akunena zoona.ma albino akuphedwa mbali ya kumudzi komwe apolisi amafikako pakatha miyezi yambili bcz choti milandu yambili imathera kwamafumu.Makolo ndi amene amadziwa mmene mwana wawo amayendela ngakhale ali ochepa.ngakhale ife dzika sitithandizapo kutetezana wina ndi zake kuti umve oterewu uthe.a complete citizen react mwachangu

  16. Are u serious Mr officer?? Munthu wa mayi wagona ndika mwana kake ku mimbaku, pakati pa usiku kubwela zogawenga and snatch de baby from her, instead of helping her mukuti muzimumanga?? Ds z not a gd statement to com from a highly ranking officer, a commissioner for dat matter, ts lyk telin us dat police has failed to solv de albino issues

  17. my fellow Malawians is time we take aresponsibility to protect our people the police are full of corrupt who knows whoz behind this my people take the law in our hands fuck the police

  18. Komano pankhaniyi ngati boma ndi mabungwe mukhale chete popanda kuzuzula mkulu wapolisi mchogawo chakummwera ndiye eeeekaya?Chifukwa mkuluyu waonetsa kulephera kwake ndipo ndioyenera kuchotsedwa ntchito akadye bonya.

  19. of protecting our fellow Malawians not only Malawian albinos but any albino internationaly/all over the world. Blaming, bracifaming, harassing each other will bear no good fruits of protecting our albino relatives. U albino abductoers n killers know that pipo lving wth albinism r pipo just lyk us they neither money nor money human. apolisi mukagwira wotere mutumizani ku Mob justice atheretu kuti mawa asakuvutisaniso akatuluka kundende. Mukatelo muchitidwe wakupha ma Albino uzachepa.

  33. If you have failed to overcome the problem, it is better to say so other than blamming parents. Since to enforce law and order is part of your duty apart from protecting citizens. Anyway, according to your reasoning on the blame, if they are going to school, will they go with parents? Others are not children, who will protect them? what about at the grave, will also be looked after parents? Since there is a sence in nosence, I can’t blem u on your nosence other than the one ruling. I rest my co.

  37. This Policeman who blames parents should resign immediately: akufuna kutiwuza kuti ma albino alibe ufulu oyendayenda pa okha?akufuna kunena kuti makolo a albinowa azisiya kugwira ntchito zawo,nkumayenda ndi anawa mpaka liti? This is nosense,this man should be taken to the court and be introgated.My massege to all Malawians is that they should carry-on mob justice once they catch the killers.We,as Malawians we need tougher action on albino killers(kill them )by doing this ,the rest will take a lesson from there.

    • So police should divide all albinos and move wth them everywhere?this is the duty of everybody to protect them,even yourself can you just watch them while theyre being killed in ure presence?not, dont push burden to one side otherways it wont work.

    • If pple take action on such matter and the police are threaten them they said its our duty and now ? parents as well they’re in fears remember there’s a proverb mbalame ikabisala Ku mtengo amaphatikizila zonse is not only the albinos they have been killed where is the power of our defence show action and they will step Bach not pointing fingers on parents for example armed lobber they was killing police and late bingu said any one who shot at the police the police must shot again we see some changes if the raw is weak and full of corruption that’s y this situation is proceed kill all who kill tit for tat
