The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has asked Minister of Homeland Security Nicholas Dausi to resign immediately over his careless remarks over the continuous abduction and killings of persons with albinism in the country.
Dausi is on record to have told the press that Association of People with Albinism in Malawi should exercise patience on the matter, saying the killings have not reached an extreme for government to act on the matter.
He said holding vigil at Kamuzu Palace in the capital Lilongwe will just be blowing up the issue.
But the remarks did not go down well with many Malawians including the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP).
MCP through its spokesperson Maurice Munthali has since asked Dausi to retract the statement or resign from his position.
“This is a shocking, disgraceful and outrageous statement coming from the mouth of the Minister responsible for the very agencies that are supposed to offer the necessary assurance, security and hope to people living with albinism and all citizens in this country.
“To us in the Malawi Congress Party, all this is a clear confirmation of the fears that were expressed by our President, Right Honourable Dr Lazarus Chakwera during a Press Briefing at crossroads on 14th February 2019,” said Munthali.
MCP has also asked President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika to declare albino killings in the country as a crisis.
Meanwhile the Amnesty International has also condemned the remarks made by Dausi.
