FEDOMA for disability friendly infrastructure

The Federation of Disability Organisations in Malawi (FEDOMA) has expressed concern over the continued absence of disability friendly structures in both public and private sectors across the country.

FEDOMA Head of Programmes, Symon Munde said nothing has changed in the construction industry despite their efforts in sensitising people on the need for disability friendly structures.

“Most of the buildings are not accessible to people with disabilities and this means there is a violation of human rights,” Munde said.

He said people are not able to follow 2012 Disability Act which was approved by the Malawi Parliament.

However, Munde assured people with disability that the organisation will continue making awareness campaigns until they see improvement.

“FEDOMA and other stakeholders will always be there sensitising people on the need to improve on this behaviour,’’ he said.

Munde warned developers that they will be dragged to court for perpetuating discrimination against people with disabilities.

“It is time to take legal action against owners of the buildings that are disability friendly to answer charges of discrimination,” Munde added.

He asked city and district councils to only approve a structure that has accessibility features.
