Criminal gangs nicknamed “albino hunters” and armed with machetes, knives and axes are striking fear into people living with albinism in Malawi, abducting and often killing their victims in broad daylight and in the dead of night, prompting police to announce a shoot-to-kill policy.
The latest victim of the brutal attacks is a nine-year old boy with albinism from Malawi’s eastern district of Machinga. His mother Edna Cedrick tried to rescue her son Brian when two attackers abducted him early in March 2016.
According to South Malawi News, the mutilated body of the boy has been found. His head and other parts of his body were cut off (pictured). Police have arrested a 22-year-old man for taking part in the gruesome murder. According to the police Over 30 criminal cases were reported that included killings, abductions, and being found with bones of persons with albinism, there are even some daredevils who go to cemeteries to dig graves where people with albinism were buried. All that is done in the name of hunting for the body parts or bones of albinos,” he said.
