Amid increasing attacks on albinos, police in Blantyre have been forced to register all people with albinism in the city.
The development has emerged as a way of curbing increasing cases of brutal killings and abduction of people with albinism in the country.
Senior assistant commissioner of police Ellobium Banda said Blantyre district has commenced registrations of people living with albinism and their relations in order to easily monitor them.
“This registration will enable us to work together with communities easily and keep track on the daily activities of people living with albinism,” Banda explained.
Banda said registering these people will help the police to know the proper details of how many the society is having, their relations, and the school they attend for easy identification of any form of abuse.
Malawi is becoming unfriendly for people with albinism as there are some inhuman people who look for their body parts.
Recently, President Peter Mutharika warned the public to stop the inhuman malpractice of killing, abducting and exhuming the remains of people with albinism.
