According to Deputy Public Relations Officer for Mzuzu police Cecilia Mfune, the woman on 10th July 2016 was going to Zigwagwa market in the city of Mzuzu to buy oranges.

  8. This topic is very sensetive. We need to be very careful when socialising in our communities. “Get me correct”. Due to rising of killings of pples with albinism that might make other pple not to be heard in justice systems. That doesn’t mean that we must insult anyone including albino,disable,poor etc. We are all the same under Malawi laws. The court might now rule on baseless evidence to protect the diginity of pple with albnism. With this case it is going to be critcal to the judge to reveal the facts not the feelings. However lets unite, # STOP KILLING PPLE WITH ALBINISM.
