APAM calls for protection of persons with albinism

By Charity Kadetseka

The Association of Persons with Albinism in Malawi (APAM) has called for action of the protection of persons with albinism in Malawi.

This comes barely after a week since Ian Muhala was brutally murdered and dismembered by unscrupulous people.

President of the Association, Ian Simbota said the organisation is dismayed with the continued human rights violations targeting persons with albinism (PWAs),

“We thought maybe we should wake up the Government from the Slumber so that we can see action on the ground,” he said.

“The quietness of the Government is not giving hope to persons with Albinism.”

He said the organisation expects the Government to act upon the issues within thirty days.

Simbota warned that they will conduct a vigil at the Ministry of Homeland Security if government fails to address their human rights concerns.
