Thugs have hacked off the arm of a woman with albinism at her home in Chitipa district in the early hours of today
The woman has been identified as 51 year-old Lucia Nyakainga.
According to the husband of the victim, the four men broke into the couple’s house in the early hours of today and threatened to kill them.
The cruel men then chopped off the woman’s arm and went away with it. They also injured the husband.
The victims are currently at Chitipa district hospital where they are receiving treatment.
Recently President Peter Mutharika threatened all beasts who commit crimes against people with albinism that his government will make sure that they are sentenced to life in prison.
But critics have maintained that death sentence is the only fair punishment for albino killers, and many doubts of government’s seriousness.
More prominent among those critics is legislator Bon Kalindo who recently organised demonstrations calling for fellow Members of Parliament and Mutharika’s government to introduce death sentence so that albino killers are executed.
