The Malawi Police Service (MPS) has teamed up with their Mozambican counterparts to fight against the abduction of people with albinism.
This was learnt during a meeting on Sunday in Mangochi where the two sides came up with solutions to tighten border security.
Speaking during the meeting, Malawi Police Eastern Region operations officer Willie Mwaluka condemned the attacks on people with albinism.
He said: “As police officers, we are deeply shocked by the attacks and killings of the people living with albinism. This is inhuman and barbaric and we condemn it in the strongest terms.”
Deputy Commissioner of Police in Mozambique’s Nyasa Province, Joacuim Likwaha, assured that they will be on high alert to help crack down on abductors and other criminals.
Said Likwaha: “But let me say that Mozambican security is so tight we cannot allow such barbaric acts to occur. However, this does not mean that we will not investigate these alleged crimes. We will be there for you”.
