Blantyre albino in cooler

Written by  MBC Online

Police at Manase in Blantyre on Sunday  apprehended Jamu Chidaya, a person with albinism for conducting himself in a manner likely to cause breach peace.


A report made to the police by one Charles Golden,a pork butcher at Manyowe trading centre, indicate that the suspect has been visiting him at his place of work to collect pork on credit frequently but often times he could not pay back.


According to the butcher, on September 14 the suspect visited him and made the same request to have pork on credit. When the reporter tried to reason and remind him of previous bills that he owe him, the suspect started threatening that he would report the butcher to authorities for wanting to sale him (as a person with albinism).


The pork seller referred the matter to Manyowe market chairperson who advised him to take up the issue with Manase Police.


The Police acting upon this report instituted a man hunt and apprehended the suspect and locked him up in cell.


The Police wishes to reiterate that it will not shield anyone in conflict with the law because of their status in society. In this matter the suspect wanted to use his condition (albinism) to offend others adding there is no person who is above the dictates of the law.


According to sub-inspector Augustus Nkhwazi, public relations officer for Blantyre Police, Chidaya will be charged with conduct likely to cause breach of peace and was set to appear before court on Tuesday. 


Golden hails from Kausiwa village T/A Kuntaja while Chidaya comes from Pensulo village T/A Somba both villages in Blantyre.
