Malawian police blame parents for albino abductions, killings

12 May 2016, 16:32

Lilongwe - Police officials in Malawi have blamed parents of children living with albinism for the current scourge of albino abductions and murders in the country, saying that they should be more responsible with the safety of their children, Malawi24 has reported.

Dempster Chingwenembe, Commissioner of Police for Malawi's Southern Region, sent out a directive for all parents of albino children to be arrested in cases where their children went missing.

While addressing officers at the Mulanje police station over the weekend, Chingwenembe said that parents should be held responsible for the safety of their own children and wards.

Chingwenembe's remarks came a few days after President Peter Mutharika urged the police to "treat albino killers accordingly".

"Abducting, maiming, killing or exhuming the remains of people with albinism is criminal," Mutharika was quoted as saying.

Malawi24 reported that at least 55 cases of attacks on albinos had been recorded from January to April of this year in the southern African country.
