Nurses’ body applauds ban of herbalists

27

The National Organisation of Nurses and Midwives of Malawi (NONM) has applauded the ban on herbalists as a solution to curb the killings of people with albinism.

The development follows the Mzuzu High Court’s decision to ban witchdoctors as a solution to the killings of people with albinism in the country.

Following the verdict, the nurses’ body has applauded the ban arguing that tradition healers are fuelling the malpractice.

Ngoma: Commends the ban.

In statement signed by NONM President Dorothy Ngoma, the ban has been seen to be a positive step in stopping the killings of people living with albinism.

“We commend government for the steps taken to address the issue including the recent court ban on herbalists practicing in the country as they are believed to be fuelling the barbaric acts,” reads a depict of the statement available at Malawi24.

The nurses have since urged government to take “serious” measures to ensure the barbaric acts are put to an end.

“We implore upon the government to seriously beef up security for our nurse members and all people with albinism in the country so that they feel safe, secure and not discriminated against in their respective places of work.

“We call upon all Malawians to join hands in making our country a better place for our friends with albinism and everyone so that together we effectively contribute to national development,” reads the statement further.

However, Malawi human rights activist Timothy Mtambo condemned the ban arguing that the development will not end the killings in the country.

  1. Its a foolish ban and i wonder the credibility of this hisworhip the judge who made this ruling. I have never heard that a certain witchdoctor has been arrested in connection with albinos. True? The whole judge banning traditional doctors on mere suspicions? Shit! Kunyazitsa court kumeneko ndithu. Bwanji osabananso maprofeti ena akumamveka ndi za satanic wa poti akuti nawo amamwa magazi awanthu

  2. Ku bannar ma traditional doctors kwa amalawi kulibe phindu lililonse chifukwa ma albino amene mukuti akuphedwao sitinamvepo kuti Dr wakuti wagwidwe kapena akukaonekela mkoti pa nkhani imeneyi ndiye Kaye ukuti ndiwe nurse kapena kuti midwive ndizako zimenezo popeza mmene ukuonekelamo ndiye bolalanso nsing’angayo.nchifukwa pabungwe lanulo asankha iwe pokuona kuti ulibe nzelu.

  3. Knw that everywhere in the world there are witch doctors,but Malawi has banned her hebalists?Hmmm! Now knw that there are some diseases which cannot be cured at your hospitals and also think of the witch doctors welfare.Any maybe you will employ them in NG0s and government

  4. It is not a ban but an injunction which can be lifted by the Registrar of the High court after the applicant and the respondent are heard together in a judicial house .And for your information ,those who are tradition doctors doing it on proffession must register at their organisation called Herbalist Association of Malawi and after being approved the lincence is offered to them to work freely dziko lililonse amapanga choncho koma ku malawi kuno zinalowa zachibwana coz ena amangofuna kuwabera anthu basi amathawa kupita boma lina atasinthaso dzina nde zimakhala zovuta kuti uwafufuze pamene woti ali mukalundula wa bungwe sizimavuta kumufufuza coz amakuonetsa certificate nde dzina limakhala lenileni mwinaso sangakupange chipongwe.Osamangoyankhula za mkutu .The gorvernment is their to safeguard you and those albinos to trace and transh those crooks !

  5. Banning Fetish priest (sing’anga) is not a solution more people will still die not only albinos . How many people have died in our hospitals because of nurses’ negligence plus Strikes for salary hike. Govt first solve this problem of nurses negligence and strikes then go to ban issue otherwise Malawi will be wiped out on the map with only nurses around. Kaya!!. Ngoma uyo she is doing nothing to address the problem of negligence. People have died and she knows this very well.

  6. Typical of a woman’s thinking. What happens to those who the hospitals fail to treat cos of incompetence, no drugs, no cure, long distances to clinics/hospitals, nanga mukalodzana chithandizo mukachipeza kuti. Remedy is everybody to take the responsibility of guarding these people with albanism everywhere, day/night & hold their relatives responsible if anything happens to them.

  13. THE TRUTH HAS COME OUT!!!
    I first held about ONESIMUS joining illuminati then after few months it was GWAMBA, I also held the whole story of LATE GRACE CHINGA
    These stories did not shock me much till I saw these lyrics of the new song called MAJOR GOOOOGLE by the veteran Malawian gospel artist MASUDI KHONJE .fame (KUKWERA MAPIRI TIKUITANA)
    The most shocking part in his lyrics of this song is that he worships PROPHET SHEPHERD BUSHIRI (MAJOR 1) which is common in ONESIMUS and GWAMBA`S songs which confirms to me that MASUDI KHONJE is one of them.
    Check out for the song lyrics

    MAJOR GOOOOGLE
    Aaaaaaaaaah iyeeeh!!!
    (Chorus)
    Major do something – Major goooogle
    Do something – Major goooogle
    In my career – Major goooogle
    Financial breakthrough –Major goooogle
    In my marriage – Major goooogle
    Do something – Major goooogle
    (Verse)
    Arise to praise my God ,my national praise
    International dance, supernatural God
    Melody in my heart , Jesus to my right
    Major on the lead ,with supernatural grace
    I praise him happily , no stress
    Surrounded with angels and loin of Judah
    Aaaaaaaaah iyeeeeeh!!!!!
    (Chorus)
    Do something – Major goooogle
    Major do something – Major goooogle
    In my business – Major goooogle
    I need healing –Major goooogle
    Just locate me – Major goooogle
    Please do something – Major goooogle
    (Verse 2)
    Through the name of Jesus , Major Major goooogle out
    When I face challenges , Major Major goooogle out
    Am in a stress free zone, Major Major goooogle out
    To my left to my right x2, can I feel the house
    Major Major goooogle out iyeeeeh!!!!!!!!!!
    (Back to verse 1)
    When I rise up in the morning, feel`d with praise
    Saying father your precious , with supernatural praise
    Aaaaaaaah iyeeeh!!!
    When I rise up in the morning, feel`d with praise
    Saying father your precious , with supernatural grace
    Ooooh ooooh Aaaah!

    (Chorus)
