The much anticipated naked demonstrations turned out to be half-naked march as scores of people in Lilongwe on Thursday joined Mulanje South Member of Parliament Elias Bon Kalindo in pushing for death penalty for those implicated in killing of people with albinism.
The demonstrations held in Lilongwe, saw Kalindo dressed in a red bamshort and top joined by many others in red attire, walking to the gates of National Assembly to present a petition urging Parliamentarians to consider reinstating the death penalty enacted in the country’s laws.
During the march that started at 8am at Lilongwe Community Centre ground to Parliament Building, Kalindo challenged the country’s civil rights activists for failing to do more on the continued abductions and killings of people with albinism issue.
Kalindo is calling for Parliament to reinstate death sentence which was suspended due to international human rights covenants despite it being enacted in the country’s law.
He argues that those involved in abduction and killing of people with albinism should face death sentence in order to curb the malpractice which has shaken the country.
