No death sentence for albino murderers – Mutharika

176

…Winiko maintains he will walk naked to Parliament for the death penalty  

Coming hot on the heels of yet another angry outburst from Mulanje South legislator Bon Winiko Kaalindo that he will walk naked if the people who are murdering people with albinism are not given a death sentence when caught, President Peter Mutharika has said that he has no plans to have a death sentence for the convicts.

Mutharika: Says no to call to kill albino attackers.

Speaking when he met with members of Amnesty International who are pushing for the protection of people with albinism who are facing persecution, Mutharika indicated his unwillingness to sign for execution of any person caught and sentenced to death for the murder of people with albinism.

“We already have the death penalty in our penal codes, we do not need a special one to use to target anyone who kills albinos,” said Mutharika.

Mutharika then indicated that the death penalty was also a contentious issue as Amnesty International which is petitioning him to protect the people living with albinism was against it.

“This is also a contentious issue because you (Amnesty International) are pushing for the abolition of the death sentence,” said Mutharika.

Meanwhile Mulanje South legislator Bon Kalindo who threatened that he will walk naked to Parliament if there is no commitment on the use of death penalty for albino killers has maintained that he will go ahead with his naked protest.

“I am consulting my lawyers to see how best to go about with the naked protest,” said Winiko to a local radio station.

  9. Something ,somewhere is right!
    Why showing mercy to murders?
    The President is deeply involved! No doubt!
    Had it been that it was the rapists who have raped Gertrude Mutharika or one of your daughters in America, the story here could be different!
    U are the killer Mr President!
    Malawians let’s do something on this pls!

  19. Gyz thnk twis b4 talk ting there is two groups ov pipo killers and theives, theives r this pipo who store bones 4rom the grave so which sentence r u going to gav them? Kupha alubno kwatha chifukwa msika watha mbava za asing’anga zachotsedwa akutelo a african news.

  20. This madala I wish he could be died by now all we r humanbeings and we r all malawian and presdent is busy defending killers fuck

  21. It is indeed TRUE that we already have DEATH sentence in the PENAL CODE. It remains for the President to sign the DEATH warrant. since 1994 the President we have had, namely Bakili, Bingu, JB never signed such Death warrants. Only Kamuzu Banda used to sign the same. It shud be noted that court may pass death sentence but it CAN NOT be effected unless the President signs. HE is justifiably worried with the reaction of internal human Rights bodies such as Amnesty international. They will speak against. its a contentious issue globally

  22. It difficult indeed my fellow malawian to understand. I got all proves that the president has something on this. I that the police by had to find those people who kill albinos. Shame to court and the president. Because they don’t finalise who send them?where do they go with the parts? If are constitutions,what it says about mulder?

  23. pamudzi anthu akamadandaula ndi unfiti,amapanga plan yoitanitsa Sing’anga kuti adzachotse unfitio.ndipo amauza mfumu kuti tatopa ndinkhani zaunfiti ndipo takoza zoti tiitanitse sing’anga,ndipo ngati mfumuyo sinfiti imalola kuti ng’angayo ibwele kudzachotsa unfitio,koma ngati ndi nfiti imakana koopsa ndipo imauza anthuo kuti wina asaphwanye lamulo.tanthauza lamwambiwu ndilakuti Peter Muthalika ndiye presdent wa Malawi ndipo kuti akhale presdent nchifukwa chaanthu omwe ali mmalawimo.tsono ngati iye peter akukana kuti wakupha albinos naye aphedwe which means naye ngwakupha.Amalawi dziwani izi Peter Mutharika mngwakupha ndipo ndiye akutuma anthu.to me am just handing over o this to GOD.

  24. I think Peter is also a criminal, therefore am behind Bon Kalindo , tiyenda maliseche kupita kupita state house if they won’t change their attitudes

  25. Had it been he said YES to death sentence, human rights activists together with other arrogant ppo would oppose mpaka kukasuma ku ICC, I kno Malawians, we do things to test someone.
    Kaya zanu izo. Only God will judge

  26. So sad mr president……. if malawi practiced sharia all this nonsense couldnt have been there…. if one kills another person lik the way albinos are being slaughtered lik chickens, he must also be killed…its there even in the bible you claim to follow

  27. Oooh! Mr.President why raising your head up so quick like this? ???

    Take time on your seat and polish up your thought of judgment on this issue! !
    Otherwise you’re complicating !

  28. Nothng has materialised since these thngs started so i gues we shud jst take the law into our own hands bcoz they seem nt to care

  29. It is just giving me the clear leflection that malawi is under colonial rule.we are not gorvening this country own our own,there are some people behind benefiting from this body parts.why not killing them yet they are killing our brothers and sisters deliberately?…let the blood of our innocent people fall on our president’s head….He knows something behind the scene!

  30. Ine nnaonapo mzimai ndi ana ake awiri akupha okha mwana obereka okha ndi mwisi anali mwana oti amkabisalira athu akamapita kumsika why not pitala kukana kupha athu oti sabale ake koma nkhani ndiyoti akuziwana…

  42. Though am a zambia,mutharika shouldnt ve said ths, last tym i said that,albino killers are sent by government officials. I believe mutharika must be one of them nowonder hez protecting the killers.

  44. I c no harm wth Peter’s wrong decision as some of these notorius killers r ur brothers and I can c mercy in his eyez with them coz they r ur brothers and his voters as well

    • if they publish the views only this view supose to be published and announced in radios coz you just go straight and its exactly what the DPP regime doing in failure of ruling the Warmheart of Africa with wisdom from God instead he is rulling with the power from the devil forgetting that get loan to devil you pay back X3

  45. When things reach this level whereby killers seem to be protected, its a point where pipo can take justice into their own hands coz normal justice has betrayed them. Death sentence is just meant to deter would-be offenders. The bottom line is that our president is just too weak, if not, he is among the beneficiaries, period!

  46. What were you expecting from the President on this issue? Isn’t the country having constitution? And what does it say on issues of killing? Is the Government walking away from the constitution? Wake up Malawians if it is the case ask for the amendment if you think it can help to cube the albino killing!

  47. Chikhala kwa mzako nkumati chigwile nyanga,vuto ndiloti anthu enanu simumamva ndiponso nzelu zanu ndizofanana ndi Bilimankhwe.Lero mukunena ichi ndipo tidzakumvani nomwenu mawa mutakwela pachulu nkumalankhula zotukwana omweo,eeee kwalimba uta zoona!!.
