Police in Ntcheu district have launched an investigation into the death of an albino murder suspect.

The suspect identified as Herbert Maloni was remanded to Ntcheu prison awaiting his sentence.

However, he was found dead outside the prison.

Ntcheu police publicist Hastings Chigalu said in an interview that the police have instituted a probe into the matter to establish the cause of the death.

Since 2014, there have been cases of attacks, abduction and killings of albinos in Malawi in the wake of rise of superstitions that albino body parts are used to make people successful and rich as assisted by witch doctors.

It is alleged that  most tradition doctors demanding this come from Mozambique although the government there has declined of that connection.
