Bakili condemns albino killings

115

Former president Bakili Muluzi has condemned the killings of people with albinism describing the acts as unjustifiable and unwelcome.

In a statement, Muluzi said reports of the crimes against people with albinism which have been carried out in the international media have tarnished the country’s image on the global scene.

“Our worry as a country is not just about the embarrassment, the question of our morality as a society. At the moment, persons with albinism continue to be hunted like animals and yet they are human beings just like all of us.

Bakili Muluzi has his say.

“The sad part of it is that they are being hunted, brutally killed and maimed by fellow human beings and Malawians for that matter,” said Muluzi.

The former president appealed to Malawians to join hands to end the vice saying the perpetrators are Malawians living in the country.

“The question is what have we done in order to expose them? This is a calamity as it has exceeded any levels experienced elsewhere on the globe,” Muluzi said.

He then urged authorities to review the country’s laws to ensure that perpetrators of such crimes get long sentences than is the case today.

Since 2014, over 18 murder cases have been reported and 14 cases involving kidnapping of albinos are in the records while three are still missing and 28 graveyards of people with albinism have been tampered with in different circumstances.

  9. What is condemn just by saying without actions. I can’t understand how Malawi treats our fellow albinos, but to talk about those who affected with HIV AIDS Malawi always ar passionate and devoted for the better treatments for their life. But when it comes to our brothers and sisters albino Malawi has failed to give them intention as also they are Malawians. So for any account their is someone must blamed. HON.PETER MUNTHARIKA and his officials they will answer for the blood of albino for their neglecting

  10. Malawi kodi watani?udali mbiri yabwino mu Africa koma zachisoni ndi manyazi wasintha.ukwati wa amuna Guy,cashgate, tsopano alakwanji alongo ndi abale athu mamalubino.mchitidwe umeneu utheretu

    Kuchotsedwa mabere komanso ziwalo ku. Maravi.
    Palibe chamzeru atcheya angaliuze dziko la Malawi muganiza taiwala ife…..

  12. Stealing 1.7 Billion meant for procurement of drugs for sick and poverty-stricken Malawians is as good as killing people with albinism.Bakili ukufuna uwoneke wabwino lero kamba koti anzakowo yawo yapheduka?? Uyambe kaye wachotsa #Chipika chili m’diso lakolo nde udzinena bwino za kusowa ndi kuphedwa kwa ma albino.Wamva?

  13. A leader who knows how to convice people and keep on motivating them even know that gvt don’t have money up to reach the point of making fake money just to fill the gap. Not stealing including his members like PP was doing but too much crime, people were depending on crime 4 them to survive u can’t understand Bakili kkkkkk
