Suspected Albino Murderers  Arrested In Nyimba

Police in Nyimba have arrested four people in connection with the
murder of an albino last week.

Eastern Province deputy police commissioner Geoffrey Kunda told
journalists on  Wednesday  that the first suspect was apprehended on Saturday
after a tip off from villagers who said they spotted him talking to
the deceased at Abraham village prior to his death.

Kunda explained that the suspect led police to the arrest of another
assailant at a police check point in Kacholola on Tuesday.

He explained that the two suspects then led police to the arrest of a couple which is alleged to have initiated the killing of the albino
for suspected rituals.
Kunda said the four will be charged with murder.
On Thursday, 39-year-old Gift Tembo of Abraham village in
chief Ndake’s area was brutally murdered by unknown people at his house around 01:00 hours.

The attackers slit his throat and attempted to run away with his body but dumped it when the relatives of the deceased gave chase.

And Albino Foundation of Zambia president John Chiti said his
foundation would get in touch with the family of the deceased to see
the kind of support they could provide.

“It is always a sad moment when we hear such news. We are saddened by
the loss. What we are trying to do is to get in touch with the family and see what kind of support and anything else that can be done. We
strongly condemn such killings. We just appeal to the relevant
authorities to make sure that the culprits are brought to book,” he said.

Chiti also advised families with albinos to be careful because their
lives were at risk.

“Eastern Province has so far recorded the highest number of cases so
it is a source of concern to us. We suspect the province is recording
a lot of cases because of the border with Malawi that something could
be going on regarding the selling of body parts from one country to
the other,” said Chiti.

    As the Albino Foundation of Zambian,you are not doing enough to protect the lives of these people. put more measures that will help save their lives unlike “coming to aid” only when a life has been lost.

    Killings of Abs with impunity is quite challenging.Religion should act positively.If culprits are found guilty hang
    them publicly

    People have no humanity in them.. May God come soon so that he may save us from the devil lest we end up being lions to our fellow men. Because we have lost consciousness over our brothers and sisters
