A rights group in Malawi has reportedly slammed the government's slow pace in prosecuting those who have been accused of persecuting and killing people who have albinism.
News24 quotes Aljazeera as having reported that according to the national co-ordinator for the Association of Persons with Albinism in Malawi, Boniface Massah, the government was only committed in words to the fight against the scourge of murders and attacks affecting people living with albinism. Massah said there was a rise in attacks against people living with the inherited genetic condition and this was causing people living with the condition to live in fear. A government official has, however, dispelled the claims saying that government is aware of the challenges but that there has been a reduction in crimes against those with albinism.
