APAM want fresh inquiry into albino killings

The Association of Person with Albinism in Malawi – APAM is lobbying the Government to institute a commission of inquiry to probe killings and abductions of members of its community.

It follows an apparent re-emergence of the vice, following the discovery in Mulanje of a bag containing fresh human body parts suspected to have been clipped from a person with albinism.

The bag was abandoned Tuesday night by two men on a motorcycle that had been stopped at a police check point.

In March 2019, former president Peter Mutharika instituted a commission of inquiry which APAM condemned as incompetent following its failure to release a report.

APAM President Ian Simbota has since asked the Chakwera administration to institute a new inquiry to address the issue that borders on their rights and safety.

Meanwhile the police in Mulanje are still searching for the two men who abandoned the bag.

The two unknown suspects ditched the incriminating bag that was secured on their motorbike and bolted into nearby tea bushes to escape arrest.

According to Mulanje Police Publicist Gresham Ngwira, currently, the body parts are being kept at Mulanje District Hospital.
