Traditional doctors banned in Malawi

122

Malawi has banned traditional healers from doing their business in the country in a bid to reduce albino attacks.

High court judge Dingiswayo Madise on Wednesday granted an order banning the traditional doctors who are widely believed to be one of the reasons for the increase of albino attacks.

Madise: Granted the order.

Three residents of Mzuzu residents made the application for the ban through their lawyer George Kadzipatike.

The three also asked the court to ban advertisements by traditional doctors in the mainstream media.

A similar ban in Tanzania is hailed as the reason for the reduction of attacks against persons with albinism in the East African country.

According to reports, 18 people with albinism have been killed in Malawi since 2013.
