APAM seeks audience with Mutharika over inquiry

The Association of Persons with Albinism in Malawi (APAM) has asked for an audience with President Peter Mutharika on the commission of inquiry into attacks, abductions and killings of persons with albinism. 

Last year, Mutharika instituted a commission of inquiry into the barbaric acts but to the surprise of APAM the commission has failed to produce any report to date.

APAM president Ian Simbota said the association has written the Chief Secretary to the government asking for meeting with Mutharika.

Simbota said they want to understand whether Mutharika has failed to crack down crimes against persons with albinism.

He said despite receiving the report from the commission of inquiry last year, Mutharika is yet to act on the matter.

“He received a report from the commission of inquiry on April 30 last year why is he failing to release the report,” Simbota wondered.

He said if the assciation will not be granted an audience with Mutharika, persons with albinism will conduct vigils at the State House in Lilongwe.
