Albinos say no to APM indaba

0
People living with albinism in Malawi have told the state President that they will not be apart of the meeting the state is planning to have with the albinos and other concerned stakeholders. 

Speaking on the matter, Overston Kondowe of the Association of People Living with Albinism said the meeting is counter productive.

"This is just a way of trying to prevent us from going on strike. We are tired of living in fear. Almost everyday we are being hunted," he said.

He added that the albinos will meet the President at the state house during the vigil. "We are not meeting him on Thursday but during the vigil at state house," angry Kondowe said.

Speaking on behalf of the President, presidential adviser on Non-Governmental Organisations, Mavuto Bamusi said that the vigil will yield nothing.

"They need help that is why we are saying they have to meet the President to map the way forward. Going to state house wil not change anything," he said, adding: "The President is eager to listen to the albinos concerns."

A few weeks ago a top DPP cadet by the name; Buleya who was answering charges related to albino attacks was killed in police custody after it was feared that he would reveal the big guns in the scandle.

According to information from the DPP camp, Buleya was acting as a middleman between the DPP senior members and people who were sent to get the body parts.

An audio from an accomplice to Buleya is also circulating on social media platforms revealing that Ntaba is the one collecting body parts on behalf of President Muthalika.

The same Ntaba is on record saying that the killings escalates towards elections because politicians uses the albino body parts for rituals to attract voters.

"We were told by our Tanzanian counterparts that during elections more albinos get killed because politicains uses the body parts for rituals to win elections," he said.
