    • Another stupid idiot, a clever fool,a moron,so you want police to stop arresting car robbers just because of albino killing? Yes albino killings is a big story and a major case but is that a reason for police officers to stop responding to other cases? After all this issue of stealing cars has gone beyond in blantyre, Malawi pakwao under your pants why dont you go and be a citizen of a country where they dont arrest robbers cz or murders

    • Whyghton are you one of those two who managed to escape and you the are jelousy the net moved faster on you than the your fellow albino killers? You are surprising.

    • wat i meant here is not wat both of think…ok..wat i want 2say is…the same way they’ve done 2the robbers verily it shud also apply 2these soul-less albino killers…#Sontho titukwaneninso,tili pano kuti tizole maphunzo anu bwana..#Kinjirima thus wat i meant,stop being surprised..aint support these beastful life bros…

    • wat i meant here is not wat both of think…ok..wat i want 2say is…the same way they’ve done 2the robbers verily it shud also apply 2these soul-less albino killers…#Sontho titukwaneninso,tili pano kuti tizole maphunzo anu bwana..#Kinjirima thus wat i meant,stop being surprised..aint support these beastful life bros…

    • So you mean the police should completely abandon the culprits for other offences becoz of albinos? Is the police only for albino killers? You know albino killers and you dont alert the police, what should the police do? If those killing albinos were plying their trade the way these vehicle robbers are doing, do you think they would still be at large?

    • Please buddies,don’t take me weak..Mr #Loppa do u mean Police hasn’t arrest any connected to Albino killers?..And #Chisomo do u think i hav done nothing?..i don’t think alike,the same way we pay taxes & som pple steal it..i do my role faithfully but Malawi is a mess buddy…

    • Thanx #Isaac for understanding me…the other buddies just overstand me but i knw why,their anger rule their thinking capability thus why you see maphunzo from #Sontho…an example of another poor Malawian who think exchanging stinking words will bring solution…

    • A bad carpenter always blames his tools mr Whyghtone,atleast you have prooved how weak and dark your brain is,how big your head and small your brain is. It doesnt matter about my thinking capacity/capability but am a man who loves and understands the security class and duties of security personels in my country !! I know how robers have caused problems and just two weeks ago my neigbour’s car got driven by thieves in his eyes @ blantyre shoprite and he couldnt even scream cz they pointed a pistol on his forehead and now the police have knocked their heads of among those another person comes and blame the police,blames Malawi. By the way have you come across section 23 subsection 2 about human rights and section 158 subsection 1? You blame Malawi when you are in that country,when you call yourself Malawian why? I can see you are an inliving citizen who know nothing about his country

    • You can’t understand clearly what am up to..anyway am not here to complicate my language in the name of convincing each other…#Sontho am happy that you didn’t insult this tym..keep it up,thus being a gentleman!..you hav a point though knw hw 2clash someone’s sentiment..And am not blaming My Land,politics have robbed us big tym…turn the page after this,plz tel me if u don’t find any albino culprit..scroll down on Malawi24..may be u’ll see wat my concern is…
