  1. I have been seeing all those compagns happening but it is useless since the killing is still happening, its time of actions, eye to eye, ear to ear, nose to nose and hand to hand…….death pelnaties can help to solve the problem!

  2. This is not the isue of composing music or poems whatsoever, its the isue of forcing the goverment to come up with a hvy punishment like death pelnaty to all killers, I think ths cn help, for how long are we gonna have those so called compagn against the killing of people with albinism, we must take actions to end up the killing, wake up malawians!

  3. We stay with albinos in Zambia peacefully. We work together with the and love them so much that we can not think of cuting their breath.What is happening in Malawi kansi?
