Paramount Chief Lundu has proposed for death penalty to those found guilty of the abductions and killings of people with albinism.
The proposal follows the continued reports of killings and abductions of people with albinism.
The country’s laws already have the death penalty sentence and it is up to the courts to deliver such sentences.
Meanwhile, Mulanje South Member of Parliament Elias Bon Kalindo famously known as Winiko is set to hold naked demonstrations against the continued abductions and killings of people with albinism.
The demonstrations are set for Thursday 23rd June in Lilongwe and are receiving overwhelming support from the public.
According to one of the country’s civil activists, Billy Mayaya, the demonstrations will start at 7am in Lilongwe.
The planned route is from Lilongwe Community Centre ground to Parliament Building where a petition will be read and thereafter demonstrators will peacefully demonstrate.
Those interested to participate have been advised to put on red underwear, bras or bikini tops. Those who feel shy are free to wear anything red.
Kalindo is calling for law-makers 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.
